Data centers in India are expected to further grow as more companies choose to outsource their data services to third-party providers.
According to industry experts, the pandemic-induced digital transformation forced organizations to move to third-party providers instead of having to manage an in-house center.
CtrlS Datacenters VP of Marketing B.S. Rao said that the resiliency — in the form of high availability, low power usage effectiveness (PUE), carrier neutrality, and interconnectivity, among others — brought about by service providers are aligned with the needs of customers.
Yotta Infrastructure Co-founder and CEO Sunil Gupta added that multi-tenant co-location “assures enterprises that their data centers will continue to operate uninterrupted at all times” even during a health crisis.
A February report from Nasscom projects that investments in India’s data center market will reach about $5 billion by 2025.
Meanwhile, global real estate firm JLL said in their May study that the industry is expected to hit 1,007MW by 2023 from the current 447MW.
