HR Mohan said that Cloud Computing has emerged as a cost effective medium for service providers who can actually meet their targets without big facilities and infrastructure requirements. As the internet world readies to switch itself from IPV-4 to IPV-6 more than 100 trillion devices world over will be connected to cloud. This migration of services will present huge opportunities to the tune of 3000-5000 crores in India itself.
