by CXOtoday News Desk    Feb 15, 2017

Maharashtra based ESDS, a leading player in the cloud, has recently bagged ‘The Aegis Graham Bell Award’ under Innovation in Cloud category for the ESDS’ home grown product eNlight.

The event witnessed Minister Jitendra Singh, Minister of State in the Prime Ministers Office (PMO); Ministry of Personnel, Public Grievances and Pensions; Department of Atomic Energy and Department of Space and Union Minister of State (Independent Charge) in the Ministry of Development of North Eastern Region as the Chief Guest and key note speaker as Dr. Sam Pitroda, Father of Indian Telecom Revolution.


A statement from the company says that ESDS is amongst the few Indian companies to have done recognizable innovation in Cloud and to have created eNlight Cloud product which has American Patent for real-time auto-scaling of CPU ad RAM of virtual machines. While majority of the Cloud service providers from abroad focus purely on the B2C compute requirement, they have designed their Cloud to mainly work for a B2C company.

There have been few Cloud services that focuses on Enterprises like a Bank, Telecom company, Oil and Gas Company, Shipping and Aviation business. Even after 10 years from the launch of first cloud hosting platform, there is not even a single Bank or a Telco hosting their core data on the Cloud and this is primarily due to the failure of Global Cloud players to make their platform work for such Enterprise B2B requirements. ESDS is  a Cloud hosting service provider to have developed a Cloud platform that works for all the Enterprises like Banks, Telco’s, Oil and Gas companies, Shipping and Aviation companies and many more.

 “Though there was a lot of competition this year, we were confident to win the Award, as we are the only Indian company to have done commendable job in Cloud innovation and today our Cloud platform is used by 20 Fortune 100 companies of India. eNlight Cloud is no longer an innovation, it has now evolved as an Enterprise Cloud platform which is successfully used by large Indian Enterprises”, said  Piyush Somani, MD and CEO, ESDS Software Solutions Pvt Ltd.
