Tata Comms in data centre pact with Malaysia's PLT, others
By Digital News Asia April 18, 2014
- Includes pact with Malaysia’s Pacific Link Telecom
- Uniform customer experience and geographical reach
TATA Communications has entered strategic partnerships with NextDC in Australia, Interxion in Germany and Austria, as well as Pacific Link Telecom (PLT) in Malaysia to expand its global data centre footprint.
These partnerships would enable Tata Communications to extend its current data centre offerings in these regions and to deliver a uniform customer experience across geographies, the company said in a statement.
As businesses go global, the addition of new geographies means customers can have a single vendor operation and contract for a secure, robust and scalable data centre network, it said.
Tata Communications said it has one million square feet of colocation space across the globe, and these new partner sites in Malaysia, Australia, Austria and Germany will act as extensions.
Tata Communications’ data centres are fully integrated into the company’s global IP (Internet Protocol) network, offering maximum traffic capacity into and out of its facilities, it claimed.
“As technologies evolve and newer trends like BYOD (bring your own device) 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 C.R. Srinivasan (pic), vice president of 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,” he added.
