New Delhi: As part of its India expansion plans, Singapore-based STT Global Data Centres India Private Limited (STT GDC India) on Thursday announced the opening of a third data centre in Bengaluru, where it already operates two such facilities.

The new state-of-the-art facility is expected to be operational by the third quarter of 2019, the company said in a statement.

The Indian data centre market is expected to grow to $3.2 billion in 2018.

“Our new facility in Bengaluru will bring to market the latest advancements in data centre design, enabling our customers’ IT strategies while providing new and improved ways of linking, working and extending their business reach,” said Sumit Mukhija, Chief Executive Officer of STT GDC India.

“Together with its minority shareholder Tata Communications, STT GDC India’s latest expansion reinforces the strategic partnership between the two dynamic companies, working closely and drawing on each other’s complementary capabilities and experience to accelerate growth in the vibrant data centre markets in India,” the company said.
