Bangalore CDC to showcase India's IT Capital's Data Center Landscape

Bangalore has long been regarded informally as India’s Information Technology (IT) capital. Over the years, every technology company worth its salt has set shop here. Today, Bangalore is also an important data center market in India. That’s why, this July, W.Media is bringing back our Cloud and Datacenter Convention (CDC) to this technology hub that is often referred to as India’s Silicon Valley.

The third edition of Bangalore CDC will be a day-long event that will bring together over 750 delegates, including C-level executives, digital infrastructure professionals including architects, engineers and consultants (AECs), key buyers, decision makers, data center owners and operators. Bangalore CDC will be held at Embassy ONE at the Four Seasons Hotel on July 26, 2024.

While Mumbai and Chennai are still the two biggest data center markets in India, Bangalore has also been drawing the attention of data center operators. Today Bangalore is home to facilities by major data center players, such as CapitaLand, CtrlS Datacenters, Data Samudra, Iron Mountain Data Centers, Nxtra by Airtel, NTT, Sify, STT, Web Werks and many others.

“The Silicon City of India already has all the ingredients required for data centers,” says N.K. Singh, Founder & CEO, Data Center Guru, who is confident that Bangalore “has the potential to become a data center hub.” Singh will be a special guest and speaker at Bangalore CDC.

According to Mordor Intelligence, the Bengaluru Data Center Market size in terms of installed base is expected to grow from 205.64 MW in 2024 to 414.63 MW by 2030, at a CAGR (Compounded Average Growth Rate) of 11.43 percent during the forecast period (2024-2030).

What makes Bangalore special?

Karnataka has an official Data Center Policy, that was formulated in 2022. It aims to position the state as a destination of choice for data centers by leveraging on the strengths of its digital ecosystem, IT infrastructure, cybersecurity framework, and a relative abundance of skilled workers.

There are several tech hubs located in and around Bangalore such as the Electronic City Special Economic Zone (SEZ), the International Tech Park Bangalore (ITPB), the Bidadi industrial zone and the Karnataka Industrial Area Development Board (KIADB) industrial zone to name a few.

“We encourage establishment of 'futuristic data centres', powered by renewable energy sources and adoption of energy efficient & sustainable practices, leading to a reduction in carbon footprint,” says Dr. E.V. Ramana Reddy, IAS (R), Chairman, Karnataka Skill Development?Authority (KSDA). He will be delivering a special address at the Bangalore CDC this year.
