SINGAPORE, 11 DECEMBER 2008 Communications company AT&T has opened its first data centre in Bangalore, India.
The new data centre will help meet the growing demand from multinational customers in India for online data centres, said AT&T.
According to the communications company, the new Bangalore facility is part of AT&T's previously announced US$1 billion planned global network and portfolio investment for 2008.
Data centre customers will have access to a wide range of AT&T's fully integrated managed hosting, application and networking services to support their data and e-commerce needs, said the company.
AT&T said that the new centres were built to the same rigid specifications consistent with AT&T's other global data centres.
These data centres are protected from intrusion and failure with the same multi-layered security, fail-safe redundancy, diversity measures, and rapid response recovery measures built into each AT&T data centre, said the communications firm.
