The worst thing about Infra-as-a-service is oversizing: Piyush Somani

Yogesh Gupta | June 28, 2016
CIOs should resist ‘Infra oversizing’ approach advocated by channels and consultants to move towards ‘pay-per-consume’ cloud model to reduce IT costs and business growth says Piyush Somani, MD & CEO, ESDS Software.

Till we had the existing datacenter at Nashik, many CIOs and company executives refused to visit the same. Because in India, one has to physically see the technology work to invest in the same.  But after we launched the datacenter in Mumbai, the volume of orders have spiraled to the tune of more than 70 crores.

Highlight few priorities of ESDS in 2016 and beyond.

We are launching on premise product eNlight 360°which would be available for banks, telcos etcetera.  This will enhance customer's hybrid cloud journey including monitoring services, catering to five popular hypervisors, burst out to public cloud and managed services. The thought process of large organizations for hybrid IT is to keep critical business on premise and go on cloud for B2C applications. We do not want to lose on that big opportunity.

We as a data services company first developed the patent technology for vertical scaling on public cloud and now we can offer the same platform for on premise.We want to be an aggregator (like Uber) for compute across thousands of nodes, across big organizations and make that available for public cloud in the future. This market will mature over the next three to four years. As of now we can offer new products and services on premise to our customers.
