"We do have a lot of room to expand in this current building," said Srinivasan. "We have a lot of empty floors that we can expand into, and we believe that the market is very robust and it will offer us the ability to grow more and thereby, possibly in future, we definitely look forward to investing more in Singapore and growing in Singapore."
Tata Communications' co-location services is fairly large and spread globally. "We have operations in Singapore, India, UK and the US, so thereby, we are a global data centre provider," says Srinivasan. "All these global facilities are sitting on top of our global submarine cable systems and capacities. They are directly plugged onto our network. They are also carrier-neutral. We give customers the choice to buying from us or from anybody else. That is a unique value proposition that we carry. Cumulatively, we have a million square foot of data centre space, out of which we have 30 percent in the India market. Singapore will contribute significantly to that, probably 10 percent in sometime when this building is full."
Srinivasan also said that Tata Communications has plans to invest in another emerging market but he did not mention any names.
