The State Government of Tamil Nadu in India will soon be delivering cloud-based solutions to its departments through the shared State Data Centre under a budget of INR113.9 million (US$ 1.8 million).

With this, the departments will no longer have to depend on their own dedicated infrastructure for hosting applications. The State Government is also looking to improve the delivery of its websites among other digital services, which is currently maintained by private service providers.

The data centre is being set up by the Centre for Development of Advanced Computing, which will also be maintaining the infrastructure. The cloud service is in the final stage of design and will be available to government departments soon, local media reported.

With the deployment of cloud, the Tamil Nadu Government expects its online applications to be able to better handle heavy user traffic. The service will also bring cost advantages for maintaining digital services.

An official drew examples from education institutions in the state such as SRM University and SASTRAUniversity which are shifting their administrative and academic applications to the cloud.

The Jammu and Kashmir State Government has already taken its public services to the cloud.
