Flipkart Follows Google, Amazon Into The World Of Secret Servers

Online retailer Flipkart is now following global pioneers like Amazon and Google to build its own servers and networks. The move is aimed at creating a platform that responds to specific requirements. The decision to build its own servers follows painful experiences of the past.
