Last week, the company revealed that the new data centre marked the first facility to be inaugurated as part of STT GDC India’s multi-megawatt capacity expansion plan, spanning major cities in the country.
The newly constructed 18MW facility is spread over 400,000 sq. ft. and the company added that the entire data centre is designed to meet the highest benchmark in green practices.
The company built the data centre from the ground up, and mentioned that it is designed to meet the modern-day high-density computing needs of our customers for Mobility, e-Commerce, IoT, Cloud and Big Data.
“Bengaluru is a hub for many start-ups as well as ITES, e-Commerce, Biotech, and Fintech entities. As the IT city’s largest operational data centre, I’m excited to announce that STT Bengaluru DC3 marks the first data centre to be inaugurated as part of our multi-megawatt capacity expansion across India, designed to strengthen the backbone infrastructure of the nation’s Silicon Valley. The new facility is also backed by our commitment to providing best-in-class data centre infrastructure for varied retail and wholesale clients”, said Sumit Mukhija, CEO, STT GDC India.
The latest expansion adds up to 15 data centres under STT GDC India’s ownership and management, and increases the power capacity to over 90 MW of critical IT load across eight cities. The company added that this new data centre includes design features of high-efficiency chillers, reduced water consumption through intelligent design, and energy-efficient uninterruptible power supply.
Bengaluru, the heartland of India’s IT Economy, contributes about $110bn to India’s GDP – that’s 4% of the country’s GDP right there. It alone makes up for one-third of India’s total IT exports and is the start-up hub of the country, dubbing Bengaluru as the Silicon Valley of India.
The Memorandums of Understanding have been signed with companies from various countries and are expected to provide jobs to over 47,000 people.
