CtrlS has made some big expansion announcements this week. The company, founded back in 2007, with a portfolio of eight operational data centers, spanning from Mumbai to Noida, has said it will triple its data center portfolio by 2025, taking its figure to 25. This will see the company expand internationally, too, and it is currently looking into opportunities in Southeast Asia and the Middle East.

According to the company, right now, it is in talks about opportunities in Saudi Arabia, UAE, Bangladesh, Thailand, Malaysia, and Vietnam, and aims for these global data centers to have a capacity in the range of 10-50MW.
