Background of the founders
Mr. Tarun Dua, an alumnus of NIT Kurukshetra, is very hopeful for the future of AI/ML driven digital transformation of India. In 2009, Tarun started his journey as the Co-Founder and Managing Director of E2E Networks Limited as a pioneering company which provided Contractless Compute Infrastructure to Indian startups. He has grown into a prominent figure in the Public Cloud industry through his expertise of 20 plus years.
As a leader, Tarun has been instrumental in guiding E2E Networks to become a successful AI First Hyperscaler in India by successfully building itself as an Accelerated Cloud with a differentiated strategy of targeting critical production workloads.
Tarun Dua has been successful in positioning E2E Networks with owned IP in AI First Hyperscaler space in India when most other players in the market exited public cloud computing in favor of global Hyperscalers and stuck to doing private cloud, outsourced technology personnel management for the global Hyperscalers and generally worked in secondary workloads like Disaster Recovery.
Mohamed Imran is the technology brains behind E2E’s Cloud Computing technology roadmap and initiatives using his extensive experience in scaling some of the largest web scale properties in the Indian startup ecosystem ( many of them unicorns today ) while managing operations at E2E Networks..
During the initial stages of his career, he worked on Wireless Network protocols (IEEE 802.11) and he continued pursuing his interest in Wireless Network Protocols by researching and submitting his thesis in MS in Information and Communication (by Research).
Imran has been an avid user and supporter of Open Source and has deployed Free and Open Source Software (FOSS) solutions on different domains for leading organizations and educational institutions. At E2E Networks, he follows the same open source passion to help teams create innovative, creative, efficient, and reliable products and solutions.
Explain about E2E Networks Ltd
E2E Networks is a NSE-Listed AI-First Hyperscaler providing instant availability of scalable AI/ML and Cloud services needed by developers, data scientists, startups, enterprises, higher education and research,and government bodies, to deploy, use and scale machine learning platforms, data science workflows and other applications.
E2E Networks started in 2009, and since then we have been the Cloud Platform of choice using which several startups scaled up and became unicorns. After an initial funding round by Blume Ventures, E2Elisted on NSE Emerge in 2018 through an IPO which was oversubscribed 70 times. As a fully India-built Swadeshi cloud company, we are proud to have been part of India’s massive digital push and the startup, enterprise ecosystem. Currently listed on the NSE itself having migrated from NSE Emerge in 2022.
As we step into the era of Generative AI and machine learning, we are now building the Cloud Platform needed for India’s data scientists, developers and enterprises to step into the future.
What differentiates E2E Networks Ltd. from competitors in the market?
E2E Networks is laser-focused on the use-cases that we see our customers need, and we build vertically deep solutions that solve those problems. With this approach, our team has gone through the process of seeing unicorns scale on our computing infrastructure, and hence built the ecosystem of technologies that have been needed to do so.
Furthermore, our cloud platform is built on battle-tested open source technologies, which allows us to market our products with a massive cost advantage over competition. For instance, we recently launched ‘Tir’, a Data Science and Machine Learning platform on the cloud, that remarkably simplifies the life of a data scientist trying to build and launch machine learning models.
Staying ahead of the curve is in our DNA, and we were one of the first Swadeshi cloud companies to launch GPU Cloud in India, which is currently being used by numerous AI/ML companies.
How do your Cloud Computing platform address the unique needs and challenges of businesses in various industries ?
E2E Networks provides businesses with one of the best price-performant infrastructures in the market, powered by the ecosystem of technologies like Cloud GPUs, Compute resources, Object Storage, Load Balancers, CDN, Containers, DBaaS, Block Storage and everything else they need to build and launch their respective applications and platforms.
We are India’s exclusive Cloud provider of prepaid and per-hour billing, providing businesses with complete control over their spending, ensuring peace of mind and a 100% predictable cloud infrastructure pricing.
With the machine learning and AI era upon us, our approach as an AI-First Hyperscaler is to be the trusted and High Performance Computing Platform machine learning platforms and applications that startups, enterprises, and institutions across our country plan to build, deploy and scale.
Can you explain the key features and benefits of your cloud computing solutions?
The key features and benefits of our GPU and Cloud Computing solutions would be:
- Best price-performance ratio in the Indian market
- Battle-tested open-source based platform used in production by our customers
- 100% predictable pricing, prepaid billing
- Cutting edge GPUs and compute resources
- An entire ecosystem of cloud technologies that developers need to build reliable applications, such as GPU and CPU resources, DBaaS, Object Storage, CDN, Block Storage, Containers, and more
- Exceptional 100% ‘human’ support teams to assist businesses in building production platforms
- Our Extensive experience in enabling the scaling of unicorns on our infrastructure
- The transparency and stability that comes from our NSE Listing
- Fully Swadeshi cloud, which provides businesses with peace of mind around data sovereignty.
How does your brand ensure the security and privacy of data stored in the cloud?
We are highly committed to the safety, security and privacy of data, and are certified with PCI-DSS, ISO 9000, and ISO 27001 certifications. We therefore are over compliant with the latest of security standards and practices.
Furthermore, our customers not only get direct secure access to their infrastructure, we implement security groups, ingress controllers, and are partnered with Bitninja, which offers anti-malware and customizable Web Application Firewall (WAF) support. Our platform enables and encourages customers to utilize encryption to secure data using SSL for its transfer.
How does a Swadeshi cloud contribute to data security and sovereignty?
Being a Swadeshi AI-First Hyperscaler, we strictly adhere to the mandates of the Indian IT Act, and we fully comply with all laws and regulations in India and are NOT at risk of sharing, interception or its seizure by foreign governments.
This means that when businesses run on our cloud platform, they have a peace of mind around data sovereignty.
What are the future trends and advancements you see in the field of cloud computing, and how is E2E prepared to adapt to those changes?
We have now entered the AI and Machine Learning era. This is already visible through the phenomenal rate of adoption of AL/ML amongst businesses. As ML technologies become the core component that companies build their workflows and interfaces upon, they would need highly performant cloud GPU infrastructure and machine learning frameworks that can help power their workloads and build/train machine learning models.
As an AI-First Hyperscaler, we are already building the backbone, the infrastructure, the technologies, and the frameworks needed for businesses to compete and succeed in the AI era.
Recently, we launched an advanced Cloud GPU-based notebook framework on our system that enables data scientists and developers to seamlessly build and deploy machine learning models.
