    [EN] DigitalOcean's Next Datacenter: Bangalore, India

    February 22, 2016

    Tomorrow morning, India Standard Time, our COO Karl will announce our newest datacenter region at SURGE conference in Bangalore, India’s central tech hub and the place where we plan to power up our next facility this summer.

    Developers throughout India and the neighboring regions have been with us since the very beginning of DigitalOcean and as early as June 2013 have been urging us to come to India. We are proud to already have amazing Indian startups like KartRocket, NoBroker.in, and Flipkart among our customers today. For two years in a row, we have sponsored GopherConIndia and have had the pleasure to meet Indian developers there.

    We are inspired by the entrepreneurial energy and the incredible pace of innovation here. The number of software developers throughout India will grow to over 5 million by the year 2018. Last year there were thousands of startups throughout India, and the number is projected to triple by 2020!

    By opening a new datacenter in the region, we’re hoping to further facilitate innovation and collaboration for developer teams. The datacenter will be equipped with our most up-to-date hardware and network architecture, and it will be among the first to have access to our newest products coming out this year.

    We are truly excited to be coming to India, and look forward to hearing feedback on how we can best serve the community. If you are at SURGE, make sure to drop by our developers’ lounge. If not, reach out to us in the comments or on Twitter any time. And remember to subscribe to the request on UserVoice in order to get updated when the datacenter launches!

    DigitalOcean announces plans to enter India

    Shalina Pillai | TNN | Feb 22, 2016

    BENGALURU: New York-based cloud computing platform DigitalOcean has announced their plans to open a data centre in India, with an initial investment of $5 million.

    "We're here to help the booming economy in India continue to grow and succeed," said Ben Uretsky, CEO and Co-Founder of DigitalOcean. "There's no better way to build and launch your business than on top of cloud. Entrepreneurs should be focused on their product and keeping their customers happy, not managing hardware and servers - that's where we come in."

    "We have big plans for 2016," said Moisey Uretsky, Chief Product Officer and Co-Founder of DigitalOcean. "We are actively working on a robust storage solution, as well as a monitoring solution, to complement our current product offerings. Developers in India will have first access to these cutting-edge technologies in our new datacenter in Bangalore."

    KartRocket, India's leading e-commerce enabler that raised $6 million in Series B funding just last month, has been using DigitalOcean's cloud for the past two years. "DigitalOcean's made it extremely simple for our team of developers to scale our application, as we've gained traction and more customers over the past years. It's the simplest cloud platform in the market for developers and startups to launch their apps on," said Saahil Goel, Co-Founder and CEO of KartRocket.

    DigitalOcean to set up centre in B'luru

    February 23, 2016, Bengaluru, DHNS

    With plans to launch the centre sometime in the second quarter of this year, the company plans an investment of $5 million for this year, which includes the setting up of the data centre.

    The company already has 58,000 registered users from India, including Flipkart, InMobi, KartRocket and Housing.com, among others.

    “Cloud in India is being led by the startup community, unlike in the West, which is led by enterprise users. Our offering is most cost-effective starting at $5 per month for 512 MB, and going up to $640 per month for 640 GB,” said Karl Alomar, COO, DigitalOcean.

    “DigitalOcean has built the simplest infrastructure experience for developers. Besides, the pricing model is also straight-forward,” said Mitch Wainer, Co-Founder, DigitalOcean. Stating that the company is bullish on the startup community here, he said, “With 4.5 million developers and over 4,000 startups taking ground in India in 2015, we are confident about the market as the leading cohort of users are going to be the adopters.”

    The company will initiate operations in India with 5-10 people at its data centre, and is in talks with Tata, Reliance and Airtel for network contracts.

    DigitalOcean to open data centre in Bengaluru

    Bengaluru, Feb 22 : New York-based developers' cloud computing platform DigitalOcean on Monday said it will set up a data centre in Bengaluru and offer solutions to startups, individual developers and other non-enterprise clients.

    "Currently there are no simplified and tailor-made cloud computing solutions to individual developers and startups who do not fit the target profile of large cloud solutions providers. We aim to cater to this niche segment with our solutions where they can launch a virtual server in seconds," said its COO Karl Alomar.

    He said India's vibrant startup community with ever rising startups - 4,000 in 2015 - and considering the software developers to touch five million by 2018, DigitalOcean's solutions are best suited for them to be taken up at an affordable price point of $10 per GB of memory.

    Software as Solution (Saas), SMBs, Bigdata and Adtech companies are also its target group.

    The company pricing model for Droplets (its virtual servers) is the same for US and India, available between $5 to $640 for various combinations of virtual servers.

    "Digital Ocean will invest $5 million in India in 2016 to set up its 12th datacentre and hire five to 10 employees in Bengaluru," said Alomar.

    The company's cofounder Mitch Wainer said players like Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure and others solutions are overwhelming for developers and startups and cater to larger enterprises.

    "Key differentiators from DigitalOcean are simple control panel, active developer community, professional hosting starting at $5 per month, solid state disk (SSD) only cloud, one click installations and Linux distributions," he said.

    The company has six lakh clients globally and 58,000 in India as of December 2015. E-commerce player Flipkart is one of its Indian clients.

    DigitalOcean was founded in 2011 by Moisey Uretsky, Ben Uretsky and Wainer in New York. It has 250 employees.

    Cloud computing major DigitalOcean to set up first data centre in India

    Sangeetha Chengappa

    Bengaluru, February 22:

    DigitalOcean, the world’s second-largest cloud computing provider, will set up its first India data centre in Bengaluru, in the April–June quarter of 2016.

    The New York-headquartered firm, which is setting up shop in India, will invest $5 million in the data centre in Electronics City and is looking to hire a Country Manager, supported by a small marketing team that will be based out of Bengaluru.

    “Ours is cloud computing platform targeted at the developer and start-up community. We have 11 data centres around the world and Bengaluru will host our 12{+t}{+h} data centre. We will build a base capacity of 250,000 gigabytes of memory to support a couple of hundred thousand users to begin with, and then scale up as demand increases. Globally, 600,000 developers have deployed their cloud infrastructure on DigitalOcean. We already have 58,000 registered users in India as of December 2015,” Mitch Wainer, co-founder of DigitalOcean, told BusinessLine.

    India is one of the company’s top five markets after the US, the UK, Canada and Brazil. Pointing out that India is home to the fastest growing ecosystem of start-ups and entrepreneurs, with approximately 4,000 start-ups launching this past year alone, Wainer said, “The number of software developers in India will grow to over 5 million by 2018, surpassing the number of developers in the US, clearly making the region one of the most important technology markets in the world.”

    Until December 2015, the company had been adding 2,500 users every month in India, and expects that number to go up to 10,000 a month once the data centre is operational.

    Droplet – the company’s branded term for a cloud server – is a compute resource that comes packaged with memory, storage, and bandwidth.

    Pricing for India is the same as global rates – beginning at $5 per month for an individual virtual server at the entry level up to $640 – and is calculated on an hourly basis, guaranteeing that companies only pay for infrastructure resources that are actually being used.

    The flexibility to quickly spin up servers via the company’s simple control panel or API is part of the special DigitalOcean experience.
