Alibaba Cloud plans more data centers

ALIBABA Cloud said it will establish two new data centers in Mumbai and Jakarta, expected to be operational in the end of next March, to serve the booming demand for cloud services.

“Establishing data centers in India and Indonesia will further strengthen our position in the region and across the globe and I believe Alibaba Cloud is uniquely positioned with cultural and contextual advantages to provide innovative data intelligence and computing capabilities to customers in Asia,” said Simon Hu, Senior Vice President of Alibaba Group and President of Alibaba Cloud.

It is also seeking to provide services for companies that need to combine their online and offline operations through one integrated technology platform.

Cloud computing companies have been benefiting from the rising demand from domestic as well as overseas companies. China's public cloud market is expected to reach US$3.8 billion by 2020.

Alibaba Cloud will increase its total number of data center locations to 17, covering the Chinese mainland, Australia, Germany, Japan, Hong Kong, Singapore, the United Arab Emirates and the United States.

In the fiscal year ended March, Alibaba Cloud reported revenue of 6.7 billion yuan (US$980 million), more than doubling last year's income and the number of paying customers reached 874,000.
