Telecom major Bharti Airtel today launched cloud computing services using HP's technology to provide software and related infrastructure to business organisations on pay-per-use model.
"Cloud computing market in India is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 40% by 2014. With our end-to-end telecom solutions bundled with the latest technologies like 3G and 4G, Bharti Airtel is poised to lead this space," Bharti Airtel CEO Sanjay Kapoor said in a statement.
Through its Cloud Enablement Platform (CLEP), Bharti Airtel will offer hosted Software as a Service (SaaS) and IaaS (Infrastructure-as-a-Service) applications to the small and large enterprises on a pay-as-you-go model, it added.
In cloud computing, end users are not required to buy software or devices as they are provided by service providers on a rental basis.
HP will implement and manage Bharti's CLEP.
The company said that initially it will offer business solutions like ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning), accounting packages and storage and compute.
Going forward, the company will introduce diversify SaaS applications on the same platform especially for small and medium business customers, the statement said.
