Hyderabad, Apr 23 (KNN) The e-commerce player, Flipkart, has announced the launch of its datacenter in Hyderabad and investment in Telangana to strengthen its technology infrastructure in order to bring in more sellers and Micro Small and Medium Enterprises (MSMEs) to the platform.

Inaugurated by Principal Secretary IT and Commerce, Jayesh Ranjan along with Flipkart Group’s Chief Corporate Affairs Officer Rajneesh Kumar, this is the Flipkart’s second datacenter in the country and the first in the state of Telangana.

This datacenter has been built in partnership with CtrlS and is a part of one of the largest private cloud deployments in the country which will help strengthen its growing marketplace e-commerce business in India.

Their investment and commitment to the business will further strengthen Telangana as the first choice of IT and Tech companies to not only scout for talent but for further strengthening their technology infrastructure establishments as well.”
