GI Cloud (MeghRaj)

GI Cloud– A Cloud Computing Initiative of MeitY

1. Background

In order to utilize and harness the benefits of Cloud Computing, Government of India embarked upon an ambitious initiative – “GI Cloud” which has been coined as ‘Meghraj’. The focus of this initiative is to accelerate delivery of e-services in the country while optimizing ICT spending of the Government.

The architectural vision of GI Cloud as mentioned above consists of a set of discrete cloud computing environments spread across multiple locations, built on existing or new (augmented) infrastructure, following a set of common protocols, guidelines and standards issued by the Government of India. In this regard, the Cloud Strategic Direction Paper and Implementation roadmap which was published in June 2013, can be accessed using the below mentioned link:
