Sify Technologies announced that its data centre at Vashi in Mumbai, the first commercial data centre in India, completed 21 years of uninterrupted operations.
“Sify has pioneered and set high standards in the Data Centre space in India ever since the launch of the country’s first concurrently-maintainable data center at the Infotech Park in Vashi, Mumbai in September 2000.
Sify was the first to foresee the scope for Data Center as a business vertical in India and hence aggressively invested in the key markets. Today, the combined strength of our Data Centers and Network connectivity puts us in an unbeatable position to drive digital transformation across the nation,” said Raju Vegesna, Chairman, Sify Technologies.
Sify Technologies expanded into the data centre business in the year 2000. Sify has built and today operates 10 carrier-neutral Data Centers, currently offering more than 70 MW IT Power.
“This 21st anniversary of our Vashi Data Center is testimony to Sify’s legacy in the Data Center business in India. Our data center footprint across the country powers our cloud@core philosophy and drives the Integrated Data Center solutions that we offer to our clients to help them meet their digital transformation goals,” said Kamal Nath, CEO, Sify Technologies.
Following the facility at Vashi, Sify followed up with larger capacities in Bangalore, Chennai, Airoli, Noida, Rabale, Hyderabad and Kolkata and aims to add 200 MW in the next 4 years. Through CloudCover, Sify also services a network of 49 Data Centers across India.
