In the preparation to the launch of cloud services from local data centres, Microsoft created a special private preview program to allow early customers a preview into using the new local cloud services. This has seen significant interest from BFSI, government departments and organisations, ISVs, ecommerce organisations and start-ups with participation from over 125 customers.

Organisations such as Mahindra, , Robert Bosch, Honeywell, Kotak Life, Bajaj Finserve, Medi Assist, Fortis Healthcare, Narayana Health, AIIMS, , Haryana State Electronics Development Corporation, MIDC, TN ePDS, Rediff, Meru Cabs, , Sony Corporation, Aspect Software, Gupshup Technologies, NanoBi Data and Analytics, Ideal Invent Technologies, and many leading Indian banks have been using Microsoft local cloud services under this private preview program.

Apart from offering cloud services through local data centres, Microsoft also bared its plan to help the government bring low-cost broadband to five lakh villages when Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi visited Silicon Valley on Sept. 26.

"We believe low-cost broadband connectivity coupled with the scale of cloud computing and the intelligence that can be harnessed from data can help drive creativity, efficiency and productivity across governments and businesses of all size. This, is turn, will create global opportunities for India," Business Line quoted Nadella as saying.
