Future Of Work Is Not In The Four Walls Of An Office

Workplace dynamics are changing rapidly and organisations are keen to modernise their approach to both, the workplace and the workforce. We at Greyhound Knowledge Group are of the firm belief that the confluence of powerful devices, modern applications and intelligent networks have replaced the Knowledge Worker with the Connected Worker.

Why AWS Announcement Heralds Public Cloud War In India

On 28 June, when Amazon Web Services (AWS) announced the launch of its sixth Asia Pacific (APAC) Region in Mumbai, India, it did nothing short of telling its competitors firmly, especially Microsoft and IBM, that it was stepping up its no holds barred campaign to dominate the public cloud space.

It was hardly any surprise then, that Microsoft was forced to follow up with an aggressive cloud campaign the very next day.

AWS now has a total of 35 Availability Zones across 13 geographic regions. As AWS points out, these zones comprise one or more discrete data centres, each with redundant power, networking and connectivity, housed in separate facilities.

AWS Announces New Asia Pacific Region – Here’s Why It Matters!

On Tuesday, 28 June 2016, Amazon Web Services (AWS) announced the launch of its sixth Asia Pacific (APAC) Region in Mumbai, India.

The new AWS Mumbai Region consists of two separate Availability Zones at launch. This news is part of the company’s plan to expand its Asia Pacific footprint wherein it announced the launch of its South Korea (Seoul) Region barely six months ago. It is important to see this announcement in light of other investments that AWS is making broadly in India including technical support centres, investments in partner network among others. Of all key investments, one that is important to note is the 3rd AWS Point of Presence (PoP) in Delhi (after Mumbai and Chennai) for its Content Delivery Network (Amazon CloudFront) and DNS service (Amazon Route 53).
