Telecommunication service provider Tata Communications announced the opening of Tata Communications Exchange (TCX) data centre in Singapore. The six-storey data centre in Tai Seng, near Paya Lebar, is situated in the new I-Park media hub complex. It has 66,000 sq ft of data centre space and will support both domestic and international firms.
TCX is part of the $430 million that Tata Communications pledged to invest in Asia Pacific between 2009 and 2011. $180million of this figure has been allocated to providing data centre infrastructure and managed services in this geography. TCX’s completion underscores the importance that Tata Communications attaches to Singapore and investment in the region.
“Asia is one of the most attractive investment destinations for businesses today,” says Vinod Kumar, president and COO, Tata Communications. “Our substantial investment in TCX, coupled with our submarine cable build-out, ensures scalability and global reach while delivering on our commitment to meet customer requirements.” TCX is integrated into Tata Communications’ Tier-1 IP backbone that connects Asia, Europe, North America and Africa.
