Bharti Airtel and HP to provide cloud services to SMEs

Bharti Airtel has joined hands with Hewlett-Packard (HP) to provide cloud services to small and medium-sized business units (SMEs) in the country, reports The Times of India.

These services, termed the Cloud Enablement Platform, will include e-mail, accounting and business software, as well as storage services customised to the needs of SMEs. The platform will be hosted in India by HP, on a pay-as-you-go basis.

Officials from both companies clarified that the platform will meet the norms set up by the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) for hosting data.

A cloud expert from Wipro Technologies has also been roped in for the development of the platform.

Speaking about the initiative, Amrita Gangotra, Director of IT at Bharti Airtel, stated: "We are starting with basic services and will expand to more specialised offerings like healthcare and education applications on the cloud, later."

Bharti Airtel presently provides mobile and internet services to nearly 30,000 SME customers, which contribute about 12 percent of its total revenue.
