Netmagic Solutions, a subsidiary of Japan's NTT Communications, plans to build three more data centres in India with an investment of ₹2,000 crore, BusinessLine reported.

In the next three years, Netmagic will build the new data centres in Mumbai, Bengaluru and Noida. The company sees huge growth opportunity in this business in the next five years and plans to double its data centre capacity within three years, according to Netmagic CEO and Managing Director Sharad Sanghi.

By 2018, Netmagic would have 12 data centres in the country covering a floor space of 12 lakh square feet. The Mumbai and Bengaluru data centres would each be 2.5-3 lakh square feet, while that in Noida would have a floor space of about 1.5-2 lakh square feet.

The cloud service provider launched Wednesday its ninth data centre in Mumbai with a floor space of six lakh square feet. The data centre will deliver Netmagic's entire suite of services including managed colocation, dedicated hosting, cloud computing, IT infrastructure monitoring and management, managed security, disaster recovery and managed app hosting.

"This facility is part of our Nexcenter brand of Global data centre services providing seamless ICT solutions including networks, cloud computing, data centres security and applications, thereby capitalising on the trend of enterprises' migrating their on-premise systems to the cloud," said Tetsuya Shoji, president and CEO of NTT Communications.

Earlier this month, IBM opened its first public data centre in Chennai to expand its cloud solutions footprint in India and across the globe as part of its $1.2-billion investment to deliver cloud services into every major financial market.

Last year, the U.S. tech giant launched its first private data centre in Mumbai to provide cloud services to various sectors such as banking and finance, telecommunications, and government businesses, which are worrying about their data being stored outside the country.

Public cloud services revenue in India is expected to reach ₹4,656.05 crore ($731 million) by the end of 2015, growing more than 31 per cent over last year, according to research firm Gartner.

The revenue, which stood at ₹3,535.03 crore ($555 million) in 2014, is driven by high growth rates in key market segments, including cloud infrastructure as a service (IaaS), cloud management and security services, and software as a service (SaaS).
