According to a government communique released today, India’s government-controlled organization National Informatics Centre (NIC) has set up a new cloud-enabled National Data Centre at Bhubaneswar.
The data center to be inaugurated by IT minister Ravi Shankar Prasad will offer 24×7 operations with secure hosting for e-Governance applications of the government and its departments.
According to the government, the unified and shared infrastructure is flexible enough to rapidly respond to infrastructure requirements.
It will accommodate future technology enhancements, distributed applications, database applications running on bare metal, virtualized applications running in multi-hypervisor environments, and cloud-based applications that are available on demand.

A centralized cloud environment has been established to host multiple applications with simplified operations and increased application responsiveness to support the new generation of distributed applications while accommodating existing virtualized and non-virtualized environments. The Data Centre and Cloud Services are being offered from the Data Centres established by NIC.
The ICT Infrastructure at Bhubaneswar will be energized in the modular fashion with software defined ICT Infrastructure. This will facilitate provisioning of services over cloud with more agility and will also integrate with the NIC National Cloud Services.
