Tata Communications expands its data centre footprint in the region

Tata Communications is expanding its data centre footprint in Asia with the announcement of strategic partnerships with Pacific Link Telecom in Malaysia and NEXTDC in Australia. It has also inked a similar agreement with INterxion in Germany and Austria.

In a press statement, Tata Communications said these partnerships will enable it to extend its current data centre offerings in these regions and to deliver a uniform customer experience across geographies. “As businesses go global, the addition of new geographies means customers can now have a single vendor operation and contract for a secure, robust and scalable data centre network,” it added.

Tata Communications has 1 million square feet of colocation space across the globe, and its data centres are fully integrated into the company’s global IP network to support traffic capacity into and out of its facilities. It is also a subsea cable owner with 100G deployed across major routes around the world.

“As technologies evolve and newer trends like BYOD and video streaming become a central part of enterprise business needs, it is important to have these applications hosted on a global data centre network to provide a uniform experience to the end-user,” said Srinivasan CR, Vice President, Data Centre Services, Tata Communications. “Additionally, hosting applications in interconnected data centre enables the user to access the data from anywhere, anytime and on any device. Expanding our data centre footprint forms part of our strategy to enable businesses with the most robust backbone for their organisations’ digital infrastructure.”
