Bangalore, July 20 2017: US headquartered, Indian talent-led Webscale has recently expanded its presence in India, making the team here, its largest worldwide, with global responsibility for marketing, sales and support.
The company has also made India its launchpad for the rest of Asia. To Indian enterprises which are looking for an e-commerce operation, Webscale brings a compelling proposition: Do what you do best in your core area of competence. But let us look after your online selling operation. The new world of social media, online deals and flash sales can transform the traffic to your website in a heartbeat. If your site slows down or is unavailable even temporarily, due to a spike in visitors, you may suffer a critical loss of brand reputation. All it takes is a 3 second or more time to load -- and 4 out of 10 visitors will ' walk away'. We are in the cloud-based content delivery business and can enable a host of features to make your web-based operations fast, always available and secure.
In India briefly to review Webscale's operations here, CEO Sonal Puri says: "For many businesses, the concept of the cloud can be daunting, but there are considerable benefits to be had from moving their website to the cloud --reduced costs, quicker recovery times, infinite capacity and scalability. But these are not their core business. They need end-to-end assurance of performance, security, and scalability delivered just in time. That’s the promise of a Webscale partnership.” (The Hindu Businessline reports Ms Puri saying Webscale has allocated an investment of Rs 1.3 billion to the India market over the next three years.)
In recent weeks, Webscale has gone a la carte with its software-as-a-service offerings, enabling clients to mix-n-match elements of its Cloud Application Delivery Controller (ADC) which adds real-time capabilities to their web applications. This will appeal to enterprises who find they are overspending on cloud infrastructure by buying too much or not using automation to manage it correctly, thereby hurting their own bottom line.
Webscale's solutions flow from its Boulder, Colorado ( US) office, over seen by founder and Chief Technology Officer Jay Smith. Its head quarters are in Mountain View in the US Silicon Valley where Ms Puri, who did her undergraduate degreee from the University of Mumbai and a Masters from the University of Southern California, has been CEO since 2015
