Nasdaq-listed Sify Technologies has invested ₹300 crore to set up two new data centres in the wake of increasing demand for such services, a top company official said.

The units, one each in Navi Mumbai (Maharashtra) and Noida (Uttar Pradesh), are tier-3 data centres, which mean that the facilities would have an up time availability of 99.982 per cent.

A lion’s share of the ₹300 crore has been channelised towards the new centre in Rabale (Navi Mumbai), Chief Executive Officer Kamal Nath, said. In the quarter gone by, the company’s data centre services unit bagged 13 new customers.

The Rabale Centre has been termed as ‘ClouDCentre.’ It has 2,80,000 square feet of built up space and 65,000 square feet of raised floor space.

Speaking to BusinessLine, Nath said: “We are calling it ‘ClouDCentre’ as customers will have the option of bringing some elements of their IT stack and sourcing the rest from us. For instance, they can bring their computing equipment and take the server, storage and networking pieces from us.”

The company has already signed up with three customers for the Rabale centre and is in the process of bringing them on board, he added.

The Noida data centre was announced in November last year. It would provide services such as hosted applications, enterprise risk management and others, the company said.
