The Microsoft CEO, Satya Nadella recently attended an event held at the financial capital of India, Mumbai. The event saw two dignitaries of the business world, Microsoft CEO, Satya Nadella and Reliance chairman, Mukesh Ambani sharing the stage.
The tech giant, Microsoft, struck a deal with Reliance, where it entered into a cloud partnership with Reliance. It is a 10-year deal between the two companies where Microsoft has committed to power Reliance’s data centers with its Azure cloud. The executives though did not reveal any details of their growth plans.
About the partnership, Nadella said: “We’ve been working with Reliance across the entire stack - everything from what they are going to be doing with Azure in their own data centers and how they will extend it. It’s sort of a great example of a business leader and a company which is in very diverse sectors to take a platform approach, to use technology to create more technology.”
On its collaboration with Microsoft, Reliance Chairman, Mukesh Ambani said: “We’re very excited about the partnership that Jio (Reliance’s telecoms unit) and Microsoft will have and I think that will be, as we look at this decade, a defining partnership.”
