A year ago, Microsoft announced the launch of new India-based commercial cloud services including its Office 365 business productivity suite and more. As of today, the company has local data centers in three Indian regions (Central, South and West) and this is a real incentive for local enterprise customers to choose Microsoft to move their business to the cloud.
Today, the company published a new blog post on the Azure blog to announce additional subscription options for Indian customers:
We have enabled Indian customers to access Azure’s India regions via credit card (direct online subscriptions). This allows customers to leverage the full power of our hyperscale offering on demand. Additionally, we have enabled Cloud Solution Provider (CSP) subscriptions to access India regions. Our CSP partners around the world deliver high value services on top of Azure, with fully integrated customer support and billing.
Lastly, the technology giant shared three use cases showcasing how local customers across the public sector, education and healthcare are leveraging Azure to improve their operations. “With India’s rapidly expanding economy, we see an incredible opportunity to help customers of all sizes and industries take advantage of the cloud,” explains the company.
