Innovation holds the key for IT organizations in the ever-growing world of technology.

The 7th Annual Aegis Graham Bell Awards ceremony was held on 9 February in New Delhi where Jury of Aegis Graham Bell Awards, Convergence India, Deloitte, TCOE and COAI awarded ESDS for The Aegis Graham Bell Award under Innovation in Cloud category for the ESDS' home grown product eNlight.

Dr Jitendra Singh, Minister of State in the Prime Ministers Office (PMO), was the chief guest. Dr Sam Pitroda, who is credited with the Indian telecom revolution, spoke at the event.

ESDS is amongst the few Indian companies to have done recognizable innovation in Cloud and to have created eNlight Cloud product which has American Patent for real-time auto-scaling of CPU ad RAM of virtual machines.

While majority of the Cloud service providers from abroad focus purely on the B2C compute requirement, they have designed their Cloud to mainly work for a B2C company.

There have been no Cloud services that focuses on enterprises like a bank, telecom company, oil and gas company, shipping and aviation business. Even after 10 years from the launch of first cloud hosting platform, there is not even a single bank or a telco hosting their core data on the Cloud and this is primarily due to the failure of global Cloud players to make their platform work for such enterprise B2B requirements.

ESDS is a Cloud hosting service provider to have developed a Cloud platform that works for all the enterprises.

"After winning the Economic Times Award for innovation in Cloud, this is another big Award we have won for innovation in Cloud. Though there was a lot of competition this year, but we were confident to win the Award, as we are the only Indian company to have done commendable job in Cloud innovation and today our Cloud platform is used by 20 Fortune 100 companies of India. eNlight Cloud is no longer an innovation, it has now evolved as an Enterprise Cloud platform which is successfully used by large Indian Enterprises", said Piyush Somani, MD and CEO, ESDS Software Solutions Pvt Ltd.
