Customer Background

Founded by Mr. Jaidayal Dalmia in 1939, Dalmia Cements is a pioneering cement company in India. Headquartered in New Delhi, the company operates as a 100% subsidiary of Dalmia Bharat Ltd. The company has a manufacturing capacity of 35.9 million tons per annum (MTPA) across 14 plants and grinding units located in 10 states. With over 33,000 dealers and sub-dealers, the company serves more than 22 states and is a leading player in each region. The company has grown through acquisitions and greenfield expansions to scale and venture into new territories. Dalmia Cement is unique in that it has at least one plant in each of the four major eastern states of West Bengal, Bihar, Jharkhand, and Odisha.


The Dalmia Group has their workloads hosted on-premise and in a third-party data center. An assessment identified a total of 123 servers and 11 applications currently hosted in these locations. They were looking to move their workloads to AWS due to the poor performance of the
prevous data center. The goal is to centralize their infrastructure, modernize their applications, and reduce costs, including license costs. They also want to transform their applications and make them future-ready in order to accelerate innovation.


Business Drivers

Business Driver 1: Private cloud contract extension on the cards, Critical Business Applications & ERPs hosted on the private cloud.
