Cloud computing crucial to Digital India

January 22, 2017

Cloud computing is a critical component for ensuring success of Digital India, the flagship programme of the NDA government, and access to cloud networks is crucial and requires safe practices, experts said.
Pamela Kumar, Vice-President, Cloud Computing Innovation Council of India, Bengaluru, said the Digital India programme has several key aspects like digital lockers where individuals can store their information online.
Kumar also emphasised on an Indian version of cloud that suits its requirements. “We need the mangalyaan version (of data computing) and not the NASA version,” she said.
Cloud computing is the practice of using a network of remote servers hosted on the Internet to store, manage, and process data, rather than on a local server or a personal computer. (Indian Express)
