Reliance Communications announced the deployment of Cloud Xchange (Cloud X) nodes in Delhi, Mumbai, Chennai, Bangalore and Hyderabad. Cloud X is uniquely designed to deliver not only infrastructure provisioning in a few clicks, but the deployment of complex multi-tiered enterprise applications directly on to enterprise networks in minutes, rather than months. The Cloud X platform supports network transparency and Cloud orchestration–key elements in accelerating enterprise applications to the Cloud.

Talking on the announcement, Bill Barney, Chief Executive Officer, Reliance Communications (Enterprise) and Global Cloud Xchange said Cloud X is changing the paradigm of Cloud Computing. The network must now undergo a profound transformation, from a static entity to a dynamic, intelligent, application- aware fabric that can support multiple traffic requirements, diverse geographies and flexible pricing models.
Further adding Manoj Menon, Senior Partner & Managing Director of analyst firm Frost & Sullivan said, Cloud computing has already made an impact on the everyday life of many Indians. It is driving business model innovation and helping businesses. Going forward, the impact will be even more pervasive—with innovative solutions around safe cities, smart homes, connected cars and better healthcare.
RCOM, and its subsidiary Global Cloud Xchange, has been showing endeavors to back cloud networking requirements, including self- provisioning of network resources and bandwidth-on-demand.
