"With Bengaluru facility coming up, we have reached 100 megawatt of IT load capacity in India. We are planning to invest beyond this. In next 2-3 years we plan to double our capacity," STT GDC India’s CEO Sumit Mukhija said.
Operating since 2004, the company manages 15 tier-3 data centre facilities across eight major cities.
