IBM Cloud infrastructure powers Indian start-ups

IBM said several start-ups — Goldstar Healthcare, Vtiger, Clematix, Ecoziee Marketing — across India are utilizing SoftLayer as their cloud infrastructure platform.

IBM SoftLayer enables Indian start-ups to begin on a small scale and expand to meet workload demands without making huge investments in infrastructure development. Innovation at a faster pace, improve user experience and build affordable business models are some of the benefits of IBM cloud solutions.

India, which has the world’s third largest start-up ecosystem, has 3,100 start-ups and adds nearly 800 every year. The number of start-ups in India is likely to grow to 11,500 by 2020, according to NASSCOM’s Startup Report 2014.

The start-ups have selected SoftLayer to host applications that are essential to their business and play an important role in their growth.

Vtiger, which offers customer relationship management (CRM) and marketing automation services, will use SoftLayer to provide cloud-based CRM solution.

“IBM’s cloud services give start-ups the required edge to compete and thrive in a challenging market place. We are excited to work with such amazing organizations and contribute to their growth”, said Vivek Malhotra, cloud leader, IBM India / South Asia.
