Snapdeal distances itself from Aamir, says comments in personal capacity

Online marketplace Snapdeal on Thursday announced the launch of its private cloud platform, Cirrus, to help the company offer a more frictionless, reliable experience to customers and help save costs.

This move will enable Snapdeal to ensure that business growth is augmented with platform speed, security, and stability, it said.

The private cloud solution has been built and operationalised in under a year and is timed to handle long-term growth in traffic, Snapdeal said in a statement.

The launch follows a sustained increase in online traffic at Snapdeal and will also satiate fast growing demand for crunching big data "to build personalised and relevant experiences for consumers," it added.

"Snapdeal was born in the cloud, but public clouds stopped being cost efficient after a scale, which became the case for Snapdeal sometime last year. In a short span of 10 months, we have succeeded in building an extremely resilient, scalable and secure solution," Rajiv Mangla, Chief Technology Officer, Snapdeal said.

The cloud is built entirely on open source with OpenStack at the centre, making it among the largest OpenStack deployments of a hybrid cloud in the world.

The cloud spans three data centre regions, with a dense server architecture of 100,000 cores and 16 Peta bytes of storage.
