Ctrl S Plans Four Indian Data Centers
Hyderabad, India-based data center firm Ctrl S Data Centers announced on Tuesday that it is planning to invest 250 million dollars to open four data centers in India in next two to three years.
"We are planning to open four data centres in Bangalore, Chennai, Delhi and Mumbai by 2010 which would entail an investment of 250 million dollars," says P. Sridhar Reddy, chairman and managing director at Ctrl S Data Centers.
Ctrl S Data Centers is a data center firm and data centers house computer systems and associated components, such as telecommunications and storage systems. The company has a tier-4 data center in Hyderabad with a capacity of 1,000 racks, while all other existing data centers in India are tier-2 and tier-3, says Reddy.
The four data centers will create a capacity of 20,000 racks, says Reddy. It would also increase the Asian Data Center market by a compound annual growth rate of 11.5 percent over the period from 2006 to 2010, making India the fastest growing market in the world.
Reddy says the data center industry in India is expected to grow exponentially with nearly 1,700 square feet of planned data center space in India by 2010. Combined with the more than 50 new telcos sprouting up in India, the build would create a significant emergence of data centers in the country.http://www.thewhir.com
