TimesTech: Tell us about ZStack International and its offerings.

Devanshu: With its roots in 2015, ZStack International is a leading developer of cloud computing technologies, specializing in the research and development of cloud computing hardware and software. The “4S standard” was introduced by ZStack with an innovative concept of productization: Simple, Strong, Scalable, and Smart. The company has about 500 employees, with around 70% being R&D and technical staff.

With the great effort of our committed partner networks, ZStack International has successfully provided state-of-art cloud computing technologies to more than 2,500 enterprise users coming from over 30 countries. The productized services ZStack International provides include ZStack Private Cloud, ZStack Hybrid Cloud, ZStack Mini, ZStack Cloud Management Platform (CMP), and ZStack Ceph Enterprise. Our outstanding performance and powerful self-development capabilities have attracted a lot of giant enterprises such as Alibaba Cloud, China and Telecom, and Shenzhen Capital Group to become our strategic investors.

TimesTech: What are the trends in virtualization, IoT and cloud computing that we can expect to see in 2023 and beyond?

Devanshu: Many of the most revolutionary technological developments, such as artificial intelligence (AI), the internet of things (IoT), and remote and hybrid working, have been made possible by the widespread use of cloud computing. According to Gartner, Inc., global public cloud spending will reach $591.8 billion in 2023, up from $490.3 billion in 2022, a growth of 20.7%. The majority of businesses will likely choose hybrid cloud solutions in the upcoming years (i.e., public and private clouds), which will lead to wider uptake of private cloud and virtualization technologies.

It is projected that 43 billion devices will be connected to the internet by 2023. As a result, they will create, share, collect, and help us use data in various ways. The IoT software ecosystem is clearly undergoing the most significant changes at this time. Companies require solutions to manage the software connected to all of the IoT devices they work with, which are created and maintained by a number of suppliers.

TimesTech: How has the market responded to ZStack International in India?

Devanshu: The market has reacted favourably toward us; as a result, partners are now contacting us and discussing client needs with us. It takes time to create a brand in India, but we are on the right road to meet our goals for the year and grow.

TimesTech: What are the plans for ZStack International going forward?

Devanshu: Going forward, we are focusing on strengthening our team in India by hiring talent in the Sales, Marketing, Operations and, Technical verticals. We want to step up our game by capitalising on the market gap which would create itself due to changes which are bound to happen with the current market leader. Partner and distributors will look for alternatives in the cloud computing space, and we want to form Alliance now rather than later. In addition to new alliances and partnerships from existing partners, we are also open to new alliances and partnerships in the cloud computing space.
