A cradle of civilization, India has contributed immensely towards every aspect of our life, including science, technology, sports, and art. Today, India is home to an impressive number of developers, startups, global enterprises, and small and medium-sized businesses with big ambitions. India is also the country with the second largest number of internet users in the world!

For these reasons and many more, we are thrilled to announce the launch of our first Indian cloud data center location, in Mumbai. Today, for Mumbai, you can select our new Optimized Cloud Compute instances powered by 3rd Generation AMD EPYC™ processors, or our Cloud Compute instances powered by Intel Xeon CPUs.

Mumbai marks Vultr’s 25th global location, and our fourth in Asia. Our latest cloud data center location is yet another indicator of progress on our mission: to make high-performance cloud computing easy to use, affordable, and locally accessible for businesses and developers around the world.

Subhash Choudhary is the founder of Dukaan, an India-based platform enabling merchants to set up e-commerce sites from their smartphone. Here’s what he had to say about Vultr landing in India:

"It’s incredibly exciting that Vultr has opened a location in India. We already use Vultr for our edge locations across the world. With a data center location in India, our home country, we will be shifting a lot more workloads over to Vultr. The price-to-performance ratio, ease of spinning up on-demand bare metal servers, and first class BGP support makes Vultr a perfect choice.”

Developers can sign up to try Vultr and deploy an instance in under 60 seconds. Businesses interested in discussing larger cloud migrations can contact Vultr sales for a free consultation.

Vultr’s Partner Program provides industry-best incentives for cloud resellers, managed service providers (MSPs), and technology innovators. Businesses within India that are interested in joining our partner program should apply to arrange a conversation with our India-based team.
