Operating since 2004, the company manages 15 tier-3 data centre facilities across eight major cities.
"We have now exhausted 70 per cent of our capacity and now starting to set up new facilities across top cities in India, including Pune, Chennai and Delhi," Mukhija said.

ST Telemedia Global Data Centres (STT GDC) in 2016 acquired 74 per cent majority stake in Tata Communications' data centre business in India.
