BLOG Say hello to STT Bengaluru DC3 Dec 18, 2019 STT GDC India SHARE Bengaluru, the heartland of India’s IT Economy, contributes about $110 Billion to India’s GDP – that’s 4% of the country’s GDP right there. Moreover, it alone makes up for one-third of India’s total IT Exports and is the start-up hub of the country. Looking at these numbers, it makes perfect sense that Bengaluru is dubbed as the Silicon Valley of India. The city has earned a cachet for its intelligent, secure and scalable IT infrastructure, which supports start-ups and MNCs alike, across industries such as ITeS, E-Commerce, BioTech & FinTech, to name a few. If we pair the flourishing Digital Economy of Bengaluru with the growing Data Market in India, we see a unique opportunity for us, at STT GDC India, to harness as well as support this growth. With this belief in mind, we are inaugurating the largest data centre in Whitefield, Bengaluru. Indian Data Centre Market India’s Data Centre Industry is poised to clinch the top spot on the Asia Pacific market leaderboard, by 2020 – a growth trajectory which reflects India’s growing prowess on the world stage. A multitude of factors such as, government initiatives, influx of foreign investment; a perpetually fuelled digital economy; an explosion of mobile devices and thereby, data; and a fast-growing start-up ecosystem have altogether led to a growing need for state-of-the-art and futuristic Data Centre services in the country. In addition to catering to the need of the hour, such infrastructure will also keep India at the helm of Digital Transformation. STT GDC India’s market leadership as the largest data centre operator in the country, is further enhanced with the addition of a purpose-built hyper scale facility spread over 4 Lakh sq. ft. adding 18MW of IT load to its total existing capacity. All of this being delivered to you with minimal environmental impact, since this Data Centre is designed such that it is an IGBC Green Building. Bengaluru: India's IT Heartland Bengaluru has emerged as the cornerstone of IT innovation, focused data investment and expansion, thanks to its concentration of businesses and tech-savvy economy. The city’s digital development, growing data demand and a conducive climate have made it one of the most preferred destinations for Data Centre services. Moreover, the thrust of E-commerce, Internet of Things, Cloud and Big Data have accelerated the need for data storage to unprecedented levels. Furthermore, Bengaluru demonstrates significant cost savings on energy and cooling spends, and is a low-probability seismic zone, presenting a negligible risk of earthquakes. All these factors, in totality, have boosted Bengaluru's stature on the Data Centre map, as a city conducive for high fault-tolerant Data Centres.
