“Cloud computing is the backbone of India’s digital future. The setup of the private cloud at IIT Delhi is a milestone for us.”

Prateek Garg, Progressive Infotech

Today’s WhatIs.com Word of the Day is private cloud.

The Indian Institute of Technology Delhi is one of several Institutes of Technology established and declared as Institutes of National Importance by the Parliament of India. Although each IIT functions as an independent University, they share a common IIT Council to oversee many administration tasks. Testing the implementation of a private cloud infrastructure at IIT Delhi may be the first step in moving towards a more centralized cloud computing infrastructure for all members of the IIT Council.
