Multi-company partnership aims to enhance Indian compute capability

Tecnotree, which describes itself as a global digital platform and services leader for artificial intelligence (AI), 5G and cloud-native technologies, has announced its partnership with people+ai, an initiative of Indian non-profit learning-focused group EkStep Foundation, on joining the Open Cloud Compute (OCC) project.

OCC comprises an interconnected network of micro data centres. Based on this model, India requires approximately 10,000 micro data centres to bolster its compute power infrastructure. The network would bring compute capabilities closer to end users, enabling faster processing, lower latency, and stronger data sovereignty.

Tecnotree says it is partnering with the OCC initiative for shaping the future of AI in India by implementing an API abstraction layer aligned with telecom standards. The collaboration aims to build a one-stop shop for AI, cloud, and 5G services, offering a comprehensive solution to meet evolving industry needs.

The partnership aims to enhance India’s compute ecosystem by creating a network of providers offering accessible and customised compute resources. The platform shares a collective vision of bringing ecosystems together across the world, for the future common standards and capabilities for AI, cloud infrastructure, sustainability, trusted AI, cloud compute,and SDNs.

In addition to Tecnotree, various other technology providers are collaborating to meet increasing compute requirements. Other companies participating include industry stalwarts such as Advanced Micro Devices (AMD), Oracle, Dell Technologies, Tata Communications, IBM and more. These partner organisations will act as providers in this compute stack for customers who have a growing need for compute.

Prianca Ravichander, Tecnotree CMO and Head of B2B2X Monetisation, says: “This initiative by OCC not only enhances India’s compute ecosystem sustainably but also fosters global collaboration in establishing common connectivity and standards for AI and trust that help link discoverability with provisioning at scale with cloud infrastructure. Together with other industry leaders we are dedicated to meeting the growing compute requirements in a sustainable way.”

He continues: “Tecnotree is partnering with OCC to make this initiative a reality to foster marketplace experiences around intelligently connected products in the realms of healthcare, transport, media entertainment and financial services through our Tecnotree Moments B2B2X monetisation platform.”
