DO Ideas 2

India Datacenter

Internet usage in India is going to explode with RIL 4G launch. Just get your fielding ready to catch the ball.. RIL's 4G launch will bring the data prices (home users) crashing down and India being an extremely price sensitive market will add so many new users in the coming months which would mean more demand for hosting. I run a few websites which get lots of traffic from India and I am forced to host them at Europe and Singapore locations due to lack of reliable budget hosting within India.
I would love to see atleast 4 locations in India :) With good network connectivity to Pakistan, Bangladesh and Srilanka. Thats where the growth really is. You can bite each other here in Europe and USA but in South Asia every one is growing without having to capture higher market share.. That stage is at least 20 years away.

Be where the growth is :)

    Thanks! Just created a Bangalore based Droplet. Really great, I have hosted my droplet very near to my location. But you must increase bandwidth speed, I found singapore based droplet is much faster than Bangalore one.

    Awesome! I'm looking forward to this :)
    What will the bandwidth limits be like Brooke? I've seen that the bandwidth is costly in India based on packages/prices from other hosting/VPS companies.
    Also where will the data center be located exactly in Bangalore?

    Looking forward to that day. I'm hoping it will be in a place with less possibility of floods or other disasters. Finding such a place with good electricity supply might be a problem too.

    I really agree with you Parminder. I've web business based on India but no good/reliable data center available.
    If DigitalOcean starts data centers in India, it will be win-win for both us and DO.

    Chandigarh, India ( north India ) make more sense as rest of India is already connected by Singapore data centers.

  • Saad Durrani commented
    September 11, 2018 18:24

    Not in a million years, a Pakistani business would host its data on an Indian location. There is a big trust deficit between the two countries.

    Though I run my websites from Chennai. But DO data center in Delhi would server better purpose. Reduced Latency For China and Russia - Two Biggest Market for DO. Also would help DO for future proposed upgrade such as Load Balancing, Object Storage, CDN, and 1-click installs of common frameworks

    Demand for a good, reliable and reasonably priced hosting/data-center provider in India is so high, I can almost guarantee you guys - if you open up shop here - most of your revenues and profits will shift here within 6 months.

    @Moisey Uretsky Try Tata Communications (AS6453), AFAIK they peer with every other leading provide worldwide.

  • Ashutosh Bhardwaj commented

    It will be really exiting thing of having an indian Datacentre for digitalocean. Out of few indian host, i came accross netmagic (a big no) and bigrock. But there services are worst :-(

    Also i would like to suggest Bhopal , Madhyapradesh as the datacentre location.

    Yes it is surprisingly overlooked place, which actually can server the center Indian location to serve the Indian sub continent. The Government in this state is actually very interested and business friendly, they offers great deals , affordable lands, and most important Single window clearence for business formalities.

    Good Luck :-)

    by when can we expect singapore data center?

  • Moisey Uretsky commented
    September 11, 2018 18:24

    We are very interested in providing service directly in India however we have been unable to find a great partner yet for the datacenter.

    We are opening Signapore very shortly which should provide better connectivity for the Eastern part of India with much better latency than the current options of AMS or US.

    I agree. I am currently using Hostgator shared hosting and reluctant to switch to their VPS because of declining quality after EIG acquisition. Amazon has now CDN edge locations in India(which I am using), but I would love to host complete site on a reliable platform. India is indeed an upcoming big market and Google, GoDaddy, Amazon already has big projects and marketing setup in India.

    I understand that Digital Ocean is aware of fact, I am just hoping that it happens soon.
