Global Internet solutions provider Tata Communications on Wednesday said it has plans to invest $200 million over a period of three years to double its data centre capacity in India.
“We plan to invest more than $200 million toward doubling capacity in India from 5 lakh square feet to 10 lakh square feet over a period of three years,” Tata Communications’ Growth Ventures CEO Rangu Salgame said while announcing the launch of a second data centre in Delhi.
The data centre launched at Greater Kailash in Delhi is spread over 1 lakh square feet. “Typically a data centre takes about 5 years to reach equilibrium with respect to capacity, however, in well positioned and well strategic locations it could be faster. For example, 95% of the data that is there today was created in the last 12 months. So that’s the scale at which data is exploding,” Salgame said.
The company now has data centres at 44 locations globally. In India, Tata Communications has data centres in Delhi, Mumbai, Bangalore, Kolkata, Chennai and Pune.
