"Efforts are being made to bring the entire Railway system on integrated digital platform. RailCloud is another step towards digitisation of railways," Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu said after the launch of RailCloud.
Developed by rail PSU RailTel at an estimated cost of about Rs 53 crore, RailCloud will pave the way for swifter deployment of applications within 24 hours as compared to conventional time running into weeks and months.
"RailCloud works on popular cloud computing system. Most Important works are done through cloud computing. Also, this is going to reduce the cost and data may be safely secured on the servers," Prabhu said.
In cloud, the server resources are constantly scaled up or down as per the number of users logged on to the system. This ensures a better user experience to the customer.
