Beijing: The cloud computing arm of Chinese e-commerce giant Alibaba Group, Alibaba Cloud, on Saturday declared that it will open two new data centres in Mumbai and Jakarta by March 31, 2018.

"I believe Alibaba Cloud, as the only global cloud services provider originating from Asia, is uniquely positioned with cultural and contextual advantages to provide innovative data intelligence and computing capabilities to customers in this region," Simon Hu, Senior Vice President of Alibaba Group and President of Alibaba Cloud, told the gathering at the 'Computing Conference' in Shanghai.

"Establishing data centres in India and Indonesia will further strengthen our position in the region and across the globe," Hu added.
