CtrlS is on an expansion spree to set up a series of Edge datacenters in India. The company currently operates such facilities in Lucknow and Patna.
The plan is to set up over 20 Edge datacenters across Tier-2 and Tier-3 cities of India in addition to other potential markets in the coming years. Each Edge facility will offer upto 5 MW of capacity.
Sridhar Pinnapureddy, Chairman, CtrlS Datacenters Ltd, said, “Edge datacenters are the future. We are going to be present in every key city in India in a phased manner. Having started our Edge datacenter operations in Lucknow and Patna, we are actively working towards setting up of greenfield facilities in Ahmedabad, which will be followed by facilities in cities such as Guwahati, Jaipur and Pune.”
Adoption of technology coupled with the launch of 5G is creating demand for capacity in more locations. This needs a reliable low-latency link (ensuring real-time access to data or applications) with high bandwidth to handle massive data flows, and storage closer to the devices at the ‘Edge’ of the network. Computing closer to where data is generated, companies are also able to improve their sustainability characteristics.
Royce Thomas, President & Chief Business Officer, CtrlS Datacenters Ltd, said, “Edge datacenters promise agility and reliability, which have become inevitable needs of businesses today. With a renewed focus on data protection and security, the need for Edge datacenters will continue to rise. CtrlS is all set to tap the opportunities in this segment.”
The world today is looking for more localized Edge datacenters and CtrlS Datacenters is a frontrunner in this space.
