Deal signed for country’s first cloud data centre

Bangladesh Data Center Company Limited (BDCCL) and Gennext Technology have inked a deal to establish Meghna Cloud, the country’s first cloud data centre.

The joint initiative will be under 'Made in Bangladesh Cloud' paving the way for data storage within the country.

BDCCL Managing Director Abu Sayeed Chowdhury and Gennext Technology Chairman Touhidul Islam entered into the deal on behalf of their organisations.

Discarding reliance on external data storage will allow the government to save foreign exchange in purchasing and using cloud technology, said a press release.

The new local data centre will be available to both government and private organisations in Bangladesh.

Establishment of Meghna Cloud Research and Development (R&D) Centre will include academic staffs and students of both government and private universities along with Bangladesh's data centre industry.
