Enabling a CSP for a swift market entry with modular multi-platform services



NxAARK Technologies Pvt Ltd is an organisation focused on delivering IT infrastructure Services including DC Design, Build and Operate consultancy services, Consolidated Modular Data Centres and NxAARK Enterprise Cloud.


NxAARK’s primary objective was to find a cost-effective cloud model that would enable it to quickly offer Hosted Enterprise Cloud to its customers at a competitive price point.

NxAARK was keen to work with a partner who can deliver not only the Cloud Platform that would power its own infrastructure, but that was also available in an appliance form. They recognised that working with an established cloud partner would allow them to leverage its technological capabilities while their own team focused on mission-critical tasks and market creation.

After having evaluated multiple global cloud providers, NxAARK zeroed in on vScaler, primarily because of the ease and simplicity of the technology rollout, the features that came as standard and not least – the competitive price point.

“At NxAARK, we strongly believe that Cloud must be ubiquitous and tangible across the India market, so our main goal is to implement Enterprise Cloud POPs across multiple Tier 2 cities along with on-premise Private Cloud implementations – all managed through one single orchestration panel. vScaler has given us the ability to deliver this robust and repeatable cloud infrastructure”.
D. Satyamoorthy, Managing Director – NxAARK Technologies .


The requirement was to set up a Service portfolio that would enable NxAARK as a Cloud Service Provider (CSP). The desire was to source a non-proprietary solution which would be performance optimised out of the box and have the ability to support multiple applications such as HPC, Big Data, and AI/ML. As vScaler is built on Opensource technology there is no vendor lock-in, and it comes with support for Containers, GPU and vGPU as native – offering NxAARK complete flexibility in its choice of Services offerings.


NxAARK found that the key differentiators between vScaler and alternative competitive offerings included multi-level integrations, long leads on solution feasibility, cost sensitivity from a market offering standpoint, performance reliability concerns and high engagement on-going support services.

The vScaler HCI modular solution delivered a fully integrated, single-pane-of-glass, multi-platform, multi-location, hosted/on-premise flexibility and a fast learning curve that aligned with NxAARK’s build-as-you-grow approach. With the implementation being out-of-the-box, vScaler enabled NxAARK to ‘Go-Live’ within weeks. Additionally, vScaler provided Consulting Services on product portfolio builds, including right-sizing the solution for the market, which enabled NxAARK to be business ready once the infrastructure was in place. The key was the vScaler team’s continuous involvement and ownership to ensure a complete partner shape up, not just at a local level but globally.

NxAARK’s intent was to build an offering which would span across hosted enterprise cloud and on-premise private cloud, which it can now deliver thanks to vScaler. As a result, NxAARK is able to compete very well in the market place against Tier 1 cloud providers such as AWS/Microsoft /IBM etc. The subsequent phase of the project includes implementing Cloud POPs in Chennai, Kochi, Coimbatore, Colombo and Pune.

vScaler empowers teaching at Keele University

vScaler is now a key component of the MSc Advanced Computer Science course at Keele University, not only to teach theoretical cloud concepts but also to apply and evaluate practical solutions for researchers.


Keele University sought a simple to use and cost-effective cloud-based platform for research and development on the Advanced Computer Science Masters course. The objective was to find a platform that enabled High-Performance Computing (HPC), Big Data and software containers in a training environment.


vScaler was installed onsite, providing the University with an optimised private cloud platform, with built-in application stacks to support HPC on demand and Big Data workloads. The platform supports Docker and Kubernetes which provide application portability with other container-based systems.

The platform is currently being used by academics, demonstrators, researchers and teaching staff alike, and has been directly embedded into teaching at the School of Computing and Mathematics which runs the MSc Advanced Computer Science course. One of the key modules of the course is ‘Cloud Computing’. This module teaches the fundamentals of cloud technologies such as different delivery methods, infrastructure and data mechanisms. vScaler is a key component of the MSc course, not only to teach the theoretical cloud concepts but also to apply and evaluate practical solutions.

“vScaler empowers teaching to educate the next generation of computer scientists, and to provide unique and on-demand resources for research”. Dr. Misirli, Lecturer, Keele University

Lectures are supported by vScaler workshops, where students learn how to set up their own cloud infrastructure and develop software. vScaler is also part of the coursework to develop cloud applications and to critically evaluate the processes behind cloud technologies.

The platform is also used to support third-year dissertation projects which may require custom requirements. Due to the variety and number of projects changing every year, vScaler is an important tool that enables the staff to provide a flexible infrastructure for students.

vScaler is also used by the staff in research projects. Computational resources required for research vary greatly based on the project and time-line. It is crucial to support the staff with appropriate resources at any given time to generate reproducible scientific data. vScaler provides a unique opportunity to utilise and distribute on-demand computational resources at the School. This resource is also used in funding applications of different projects.
