Global network service provider Tata Communications announced that it will use strategic partnerships to expand its data center footprint to Australia, Germany and Austria, and Malaysia. With over a million square feet of colocation space across the globe, the expansion to state of the art data centers with NEXTDC in Australia, Interxion in Germany and Austria, and Pacific Link Telecom (PLT) in Malaysia will act as extensions to further expand its global data center footprint. Tata’s data centers are fully integrated into the company’s global IP network, offering maximum traffic capacity into and out of its facilities.
“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 at 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.”
