Why India needs its own Cloud?

India has now become the world's largest Digital Economy. India experienced a new world record in Digital transactions in the month of Jan 2023 by making 8 Billion UPI transactions in a single month, valuing 13 Lakh crore rupees. As we continue to improve our digital power, India has started to experience strong resistance from Digital enemies. Less than a decade back, we knew of a handful of real enemies. Our defence forces could prepare a plan to deal with the real ene mies. Do we have the same enemies now, or are we dealing with a completely different set of challenges?

If our enemies have changed, so have our friends changed. In the modern digital world, nothing will last forever. The digital world is changing all the time, and the only thing that's going to last forever is the sovereignty of India. India is heading in the direction of becoming the No.1 country in the world in terms of Data Center capacity. We are expected to cross a 3-Gigawatt DC capacity in India by 2028, but to become the Cloud superpower of the world it will take some more time.

Need for data localization

As the digital Economy accelerates in India, there are four crucial concerns about seamless data flow. These are as follows:

  • National security agencies cannot access data stored on foreign servers.
  • Invasion of privacy rights by misuse of personal data.
  • As foreign firms exploit data more meaningfully, economic benefits are lost.
  • Surveillance by foreign governments or miscreants.

The Indian Government and other autonomous organizations have passed numerous laws, many of which are sector-specific and restrict free data transmission under certain circumstances, to address the issues mentioned above. For instance, the Reserve Bank of India mandates that all payment information be kept on Indian soil. To be processed outside, though, is possible. The telecom sector has also been the subject of sector-specific legislation. The law prohibits the transfer of subscriber account information and mandates the local processing and storage of subscriber information. Table 1 below lists a few of the sector-specific localization regulations already in place.

1 Public Records Act 1993 Any "public records" cannot be transferred outside the country.
2 Information Technology 2000 and 2011 Body corporates are prohibited from transferring sensitive personal data outside the country.
3 Unified Access License for Telecom Service Providers 2004 Information about subscribers must be stored and processed locally, and user and accounting information cannot be transferred.
4 Companies Act 2013 Ensures that Indian companies' books of accounts (including electronic books and papers) are kept on site.
5 MeghRaj Initiative 2014 It stipulates that all cloud service providers who are impanelled must store "both physical and virtual hardware" in India.
6 Reserve Bank of India, Storage of Payment System data 2018 and 2019 A clarification issued in June 2019 mentions that the data may be processed abroad, but the final copies will be stored in India.

The table presented above indicates the Government's strong commitment to data localization. While we may not see drastic changes in this regard, it is likely that India will gradually move towards ensuring greater protection of its citizens' data within the country's borders.

eNlight ESDS- India's very own Cloud

ESDS was the first company in India to introduce Cloud Computing for the nation on its Cloud was built from the ground up using ESDS' patented vertical autoscaling technology while the world was still focusing on horizontal scaling.

What Unique Features eNlight Cloud Offer?

Legacy System Support

Bring your own encryption

ESDS went a step ahead and allowed customers to bring their own encryption to be used, thereby providing another level of comfort for systems with critical data such as data of revenue departments or Land records, to name a few.

Community Clouds

ESDS pioneered the concept of community clouds in India and architected them based on different types of customers. ESDS realized that each set of the industry has its own ask of regulatory compliance, and just having a public cloud will not serve the purpose. To assist the manufacturers as they form part of the "Make in India" initiative, ESDS set up SAP HANA community cloud powered by eNlight, the Cloud of India.
