Microsoft Announces Expansion of Data Center Footprint in India

New data center to come up in Hyderabad

Microsoft is expanding its data center footprint in India. The company has announced that it is intent on establishing a new data center region in Hyderabad, Telangana. The increased presence in India will help its customers in a cloud and AI-enabled digital economy.

IDC has said that Microsoft data center regions in India have contributed $9.5 billion in revenues to the economy, including 169,000 new skilled IT jobs.

The Hyderabad data center region will be Microsoft's fourth in India. It will deliver the entire Microsoft portfolio across the cloud, data solutions, AI, productivity tools, and customer relationship management (CRM) with advanced data security, for both private and public organizations.

 “Today's commitment to the people and businesses of India will position the country among the world's digital leaders. A Microsoft datacenter region provides a competitive advantage to our digital economy and is a long-term investment in our country's potential. The cloud is transforming every industry and sector. The investment in skilling will empower India’s workforce today and into the future,” said Rajeev Chandrasekhar, Minister of State for Skill Development & Entrepreneurship and Electronics & Information Technology of India.

In December 2021, Microsoft has launched Azure Availability Zones in its Central India data center region.
