According to Sunil Gupta, Executive Director & President – Netmagic (An NTT Communications Company), ” Netmagic has its unique identity, position play and specialization in Hybrid IT – the management of complex IT environments including multi-cloud scenarios by a single solution provider. The Company is the only end-to-end infrastructure Solution Provider who can act as a one-stop shop for needs pertaining to Multi- Clouds. Netmagic’s multicloud infrastructure allows you to run your business as you please. You can run all your workloads on a variety of clouds including our public cloud (SimpliCloud), third-party public clouds, hosted private clouds, and colocation servers while managing them through a single pane of glass – Netmagic’s Cloud Management Portal (CMP).”

What gave Netmagic Solutions a fillip was the investment from NTT Communications a subsidiary of the Japanese telecom giant NTT Corporation. The investment by NTT has only added to these, expanded our vision both in terms of reach and profits, and increased customer confidence in us. Although NTT has a major stake in Netmagic, we still operate autonomously as an Indian entity.

” In addition to the seven existing data centers in India, we are looking at building two more data centers: one is a 300,000 square foot data center in Mumbai. The second will be 250,000 square feet, located at Whitefield, Bengaluru. Both will be launched in 2018. So, we are doubling our existing capacity”, says Sunil Gupta.


Experts see a steady adoption of cloud in India as we move ahead, as Meetul Patel of Microsoft sums it up, “Adoption of cloud technologies in India, as in other geographies, has come in many ways. One is pure-play infrastructure, which comes from startups as well as companies that already have large private clouds and are therefore migrating to the public cloud. A key area in which the cloud picks up in a big way is the migration of business applications like CRM, ERP, etc. to the cloud platform. With GST in place, that will only get more enabled because every business, small and big, will need to connect with the cloud either directly or indirectly to get the benefit of this connected transaction framework that we’re putting in place.”
