Mumbai, NFA Post: Sify Technologies Ltd, India’s most comprehensive ICT solutions provider has announced that its data centre at Vashi, the first commercial Data Center in India, completed 21 years of uninterrupted operations.
Sify Technologies expanded into the data centre business in 2000. The company has built 10 such carrier-neutral centres that are presently operational offering more than 70 MW IT Power.
After Vashi, Sify followed up with larger capacities in Bengaluru, Chennai, Airoli, Noida, Rabale, Hyderabad and Kolkata and it aims to add another 200 MW in the next four years. Through CloudCover, Sify also services a network of 49 Data Centers across India.

“Sify was the first to foresee the scope for Data Center as a business vertical in India and hence aggressively invested in the key markets. Today, the combined strength of our Data Centers and Network connectivity puts us in an unbeatable position to drive digital transformation across the nation,” said Raju Vegesna.
