Data center company CtrlS has launched a tier-4 data center in Bangalore ( formerly known as Bengaluru), India, to support mission-critical needs of large enterprises in the region. With this launch, CtrlS aim to reduce downtime and latency issues for businesses availing data center services.
CtrlS say that Bangalore serves as a strategic location to deploy data center facilities since it is the most preferred hub for operation by many tech and banking giants. They further added that the city located in South India will also draw many other large enterprises that are looking to set foot in the region.
According to the Priyank Kharge, Minister for IT/BT, Government of Karnataka, the state’s robust ecosystem has been responsible for drawing such an investment in the region. Explaining the same in detail, Kharge added:
It is yet another validation of the state’s ecosystem, we are glad that CtrlS is establishing its latest datacenter in Bengaluru which is fast emerging as a global hub for data centers and I’m sure the CtrlS datacenter will be the start of the ecosystem.
CtrlS say that they will be investing approx. USD 78M (Rs.500 Cr) in this project and will be employing over 200 professionals for the smooth running of the new data center.
