In what could be the biggest push for public and hybrid cloud adoption in India, Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella on Tuesday announced that his company will offer Azure and Office 365 services from data centres located within the country by end of 2015.

Addressing the press in what is his first visit to India after becoming CEO, Nadella said: “Microsoft is deeply committed to helping people and organisations thrive in our mobile-first ‎and cloud first world.” He said there was an incredible demand in the country for Microsoft cloud services. Moving Microsoft towards cloud-based services has been one of the thrust areas for Nadella since he took over.

“The technological shift that we are going through right now is a pretty major one.  I would describe this as a shift to a mobile-first, cloud-first world.  And, when I talk about mobile-first it is not about one device and its applications. It is really the mobility of the human being across the entirety of their life,” he said in a 10-minute address. Nadella said he was convinced that cloud infrastructure, especially world-class cloud infrastructure is going to help Indian companies, government and entrepreneurs to be able to really revitalise the productivity of this economy.

Meanwhile, Microsoft India chairman Bhaskar Pramanik said the move will help make the vision for Digital India a reality. He said this will present new possibilities in e-governance , financial inclusion, healthcare and inclusion, impacting a billion lives.

Microsoft did not clarify whether they will build their own datacentres and in response to a query said they “build and lease data center space around the world”.

Data sovereignty has been traditionally viewed as one of the biggest obstacles for government and large companies in adopting cloud-based services and technologies. “Microsoft customers and partners in the country will benefit from data sovereignty, lower latency and geo redundancy with the availability of local infrastructure. Locally available cloud services in delhi will open opportunities for banking, financial services and insurance (BFSI) companies, state-owned enterprises and government departments to adopt the public cloud,” Pramanik later said.

The services offered via the local datacenters will create new avenues for Microsoft India’s 10,000+ partner ecosystem, comprised of hosters, independent software vendors (ISVs), system integrators (SIs) and others.
