On Wednesday, the Cloud computing infrastructure firm Linode said it is tripling its data centre capacity in India. To sustain its momentum around customer acquisition and new service launches through 2023, the company expects a 200 percent increase in capacity at Mumbai facilities.
“Our customers in India and around the world trust us to provide cloud infrastructure to support their rapid shift to digital-first business models and look to us to give them an alternative to the complexity and cost of larger hyper-scale providers”, said Blair Lyon, Vice President of Cloud Experience at Linode in a statement.

“The demand surge resulted in surplus capacity being filled in less than half the time Linode had predicted”, the statement added.
According to Gartner, growing at a 31.4 percent rate compared to 2020, end-user spending on public cloud services in India will total USD 4.4 billion in 2021.
The Cloud computing infrastructure firm said, trailing only China, India is the second-largest and fastest-growing cloud services market in Asia Pacific.
