US-based email collaborative services provider IceWarp said on Monday it has deployed a new cloud setup at its Mumbai-based data centre to provide services such as disaster recovery for clients.
As part of the disaster recovery services, IceWarp has come up with an internal site which will function as a second data centre and will allow a company to recover and resume operations following a disaster at the primary centre.
This, the company claims, will offer it a competitive advantage over Exchange, Office 365 and GSuite.
Further, it said that in its four years of operations in the country it has acquired more than 800 customers.
"We have been overwhelmed with the response that the Indian market has given us and thank the community for the acceptance of a new brand so readily,” said Pramod Sharda, CEO of IceWarp India and Middle East, adding that the company offers all its services in 50 other countries.
In terms of services, the company offers messaging, voice and collaboration solutions for small, medium and enterprise-level businesses.
With its current plan of expansion, IceWarp has come up with new sites in the Middle East as well. The new cloud setup will provide a private link to Netmagic Datacenter for its users.
Last week, cloud service provider Amazon Web Services (AWS) said that it was launching another availability zone in Mumbai due to growing demand from the region.
"We are opening up a third availability zone in Mumbai driven by the demand we are seeing from the region," said Peter DeSantis, vice president of AWS global infrastructure and customer support.
Availability zones are big data centres that ensure data protection and storage. Including the three Mumbai centres, AWS has 65 availability zones globally.
