Airtel, Google Cloud partner for enterprise cloud business

Bharti Airtel has recently partnered with the Google Cloud to offer G Suite to small and medium-sized businesses in India.

G Suite is a suite of intelligent applications – Gmail, Docs, Calendar, Drive, and more designed with real-time collaboration and machine intelligence to bring people together and help them work safer and smarter.

To accelerate digital transformation in India, Cloud Services Providers (CSPs) are tapping into the partnership with the Indian firms to gather into the fast-growing demand for digital services in the country. India is the fastest-growing economies in the world and has the second-highest number of internet users across the globe.

Airtel has started offering G-suite starting 20th January 2020. The offering is available with all Airtel corporate postpaid plans starting INR 399/- only.
