DigitalOcean To Launch In India This Summer; Will Invest $5mn For Local Operation

DigitalOcean has announced their plan to open a datacenter in India this coming summer.

Headquartered in New York City, DigitalOcean has catered to the developer community by offering on-demand cloud computing resources that can be deployed in seconds at a great price point. In 2015 DigitalOcean became the 2nd largest hosting company in the world, as per Netcraft, a cloud infrastructure research firm.


DigitalOean plans to have an initial investment of up to $5M to build local facility and operation in 2016

“We’re here to help the booming economy in India continue to grow and succeed” says Ben Uretsky, CEO and Co-Founder of DigitalOcean. “There’s no better way to build and launch your business than on top of cloud. Entrepreneurs should be focused on their product and keeping their customers happy, not managing hardware and servers – that’s where we come in.”

“We have big plans for 2016,” says Moisey Uretsky, Chief Product Officer and Co-Founder of DigitalOcean. “We are actively working on a robust storage solution, as well as a monitoring solution, to complement our current product offerings. Developers in India will have first access to these cutting-edge technologies in our new datacenter in Bangalore.”

  1. Great news. If Digital ocean can have pricing and billing in INR, it would take a lot of business from AWS. The compliance requirements & overhead is high on USD payments made by Indian companies, and often causes issues.
