Tata Communications has opened its 44th data center – at Greater Kailash, New Delhi.
The company plans to invest more than $200 million for doubling the data center capacity in India from 500,000 sq. ft. to 1,000,000 sq. ft. over a period of three years.
This is Tata Communications’ third data center in Delhi.
Benoy CS, director, ICT Practice, Frost & Sullivan, said: “The third party data center market is poised to grow fast as many enterprises are now strategizing to avail IT Infrastructure ‘as a service’ rather than investing in huge captive datacenters.”
Tata Communications is witnessing a surge in data generation and storage needs. Trends such as bring your own device (BYOD), social networking, mobile, analytics and cloud are driving the growth for data centers.
Rangu Salgame, chief executive officer, Growth Ventures, Tata Communications, said: “This, our third data centre in Delhi, has been designed and constructed with a ‘no-compromises’ approach: right from LEED Gold certification for the building to free air cooling and scalability to 200,000 sq. ft. and 10 MW.”
