Vinay HP said, “Data is going to explode shortly in India and we are and will be seeing a lot of investments happening in the field of data centers. Talking from a technical point of view, I think this market is definitely going to grow at a fast rate. And with the new bill coming up, all data will be in India, which means, all data centers will have their data stored ihere. And that is a wonderful opportunity for OEMs and data center solution providers like us; and we are able to foresee huge opportunities coming up for data center infrastructure.”

And with the current scenario, we see a huge amount of possibilities for data centers to come up and thrive in India.

So most data center organisations will be keen to come to India and invest here.”
