An Exceptional Inception Saga

Ashish founded Gonna Solutions Private Limited in 2005 to empower clients with IT technologies, software development, and hardware services.

His initial focus was mainly on software development, in which he and his team earned mastery and a humongous reputation, which landed Ashish an assignment with Photo Division (A PIB Division Govt of India) in 2007.

Ashish recalls the experience: “They wanted a solution to upload all their photos simultaneously. Their method was very time-consuming, unreliable, and complex. They approached me for a solution, which I provided as automation software that could do the job for them. I gave them a demo. They were impressed. It was my first job with the Government, which I continued for the next ten years by updating the software, introducing more and more automation and maintaining the site for them. Even today, they use the software that we build for them.”

This assignment gave the Ashish and Gonna Solutions team immense experience, popularity, recognition, and other clients. Moreover, people appreciated Ashish’s comprehensive approach, where he and his team developed solutions for clients and provided after-sales service. They also educated clients about the new technologies and helped them choose the best ones that suited their specific requirements.

Transitioning to CloudFirst®

Then, constantly learning and upgrading himself, in 2019, Ashish felt the need to expand his company’s offerings and change the brand identity more in sync with the novel technologies coming on the horizon influenced by cloud computing. Thus, Ashish rechristened Gonna Solutions to CloudFirst® Technology Pvt Ltd and established the company in Mumbai, properly registering the name and obtaining the registered trademark. Ashish himself came up with the unique name which symbolizes his core vision to positively contribute to their clients’ success by providing advanced technology services that consistently deliver excellent results. “We are dedicated to:

  • Building technology that transforms industries.
  • Responding to the industry’s need for IT and Cloud services with creativity, flexibility, and technical expertise.
  • Ensuring customer satisfaction and quality workmanship are paramount in all our services,” says Ashish.

CloudFirst®’s mission is to accelerate your transition to the cloud, reduce time-to-market, and enhance your IT performance. They offer an Enterprise-Grade Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) cloud platform built on the latest virtualization technology.

Going Global

The global cloud computing market (Asia Pacific, Europe, North America, and the rest of the world) is currently over $500 billion. It will be $1 trillion by 2028 and $1.6 trillion by 2030, according to the firm Precedence Research.

In such a booming market scenario, being already a Google’s premium and Microsoft’s Gold partner, after 2019, CloudFirst® kept adding more expertise and clients. After becoming CloudFirst®, Ashish and his team received humongous goodwill and widespread recognition by expanding their services to India and Southern Europe.

Today, CloudFirst® empowers its clients by leveraging information technology resources. The company combines experience and expertise to serve international clients from the US, Canada, Europe, Australia, New Zealand, and beyond. Additionally, CloudFirst® has undertaken several significant projects for the Indian Government.

We are Google’s authorized partner in the entire USA, Canada, Europe, Asia Pacific, Australia, and New Zealand regions. Similarly, we are Microsoft’s authorized partner in the USA, Northern Europe, and Asia Pacific,” informs Ashish. Being in an authorized partnership allows CloudFirst® to offer geography-specific customization, personalization, and standardization.

For example, GOI has already initiated the data localization law in India, according to which all the BFSI and FinTech companies, including Google, Microsoft, and Amazon, must store client data on their local Indian servers. Thus, being their authorized partner, CloudFirst® offers not only cloud data localization, customization, and standardization services but also cloud data security and backup, which are a must in today’s digitally vulnerable environments.

CloudFirst® is also an authorized partner of Zoho, SOPHOS, Acronis, Crayon, TechData, Cisco, ActivTrak, netmagic,, Path, SAP, backupify, and acunetix; CloudFirst® can leverage its position to offer maximum benefits to all its clients including TCS, Reliance Industries Limited, Glenmark, Cygnet, Amar Ujala, Ashok Piramal Group, Romsons, FIITJEE, Delonex Energy, and many more.

CloudFirst®’s R&D Integrated Futuristic Technologies

*A proud partner of the 2nd Annual ASSOCHAM India summit on ‘Datacentres & Cloud Infrastructure Summit’ with the theme ‘Making India a Global Data Hub,’ where Ashish shared his expert views:

India is surely poised to become the next Global Data Hub. However, there are certain factors it must focus on. The first is the data migration. A vast amount of data is going out of India because of local insufficiency in infrastructure and an untrained or undertrained workforce. Many IT professionals are selecting regions outside India due to their limited knowledge of Data Latency.

Another point is the physical incentives for tech startups and MSMEs to develop data solutions for their customers. There is immense potential, and numerous startups are creating unique and novel solutions which they could not deploy due to higher cloud-data sustainability costs. Thus, the priority for the government should be working with the industry to reduce the SaaS-based development costs, regulate data storage and its exchange in the upcoming PDP bill, single window clearance, and workforce training and skill development.

As a first step towards creating futuristic solutions, Ashish reveals they are now investing more in modern digital technologies, including IT&C, AI, ML, RPA, AR/VR/MR/XR, cloud computing, cloud data security, cloud data backup and disaster recovery, data localization, and Metaverse. “We want to be the most valuable cloud company by 2025,” says Ashish. To achieve this goal, he has already incepted the CloudFirst® Research and Development Lab, which will be fully operational by 2030.

“In short, if you’re looking for a trusted partner to help you achieve success in the cloud, look no further than CloudFirst®,” concludes Ashish.

*CloudFirst® is also a proud partner of the 5th ASSOCHAM India Smart Datacenters & Cloud Infrastructure Summit 2023 with the theme’ Making India a Global Data Hub.’

*Recently, CloudFirst Technology®’ has been selected as a finalist for the esteemed 2023 ’Go Global Awards.’ Hosted by the Rhode Island Commerce Corporation in collaboration with the International Trade Council, the event draws CEOs, heads of government trade and investment agencies, and industry pioneers from more than 76 nations.
