The Web Werks – Iron Mountain Data Centers (IMDC) Joint Venture (JV) today announced the acquisition of a parcel of land to expand its data center campus with a third facility – MUM-3 – in Rabale, Navi Mumbai.
MUM-3 will be a Tier III-designed data center, that can support 32 megawatts of IT load and has a projected go live date of H2 2025. With the expansion, the data center campus also received approvals for an additional power substation with 120 MVA of capacity.
The new MUM-3 data center will be located close to the highly interconnected carrier hotel MUM-1 and the recently opened MUM-2 facility, which is a standalone purpose-built greenfield data center with 6 megawatts of IT load. Combined, the extended data center campus will allow customers to take advantage of additional, in demand megawatt capacity. The development of the facility will build on an already interconnected ecosystem comprising Tier-1 carriers, 200+ ISPs and three of India’s largest peering exchanges, along with cloud on-ramps with major hyperscale cloud providers.
“We are excited to be growing our data center campus in Mumbai at pace and scale by securing land to build our third facility in one of India’s most important data hubs. This investment reflects our commitment to build highly connected, secure and compliant data centers in India to serve our hyperscale, network, content and enterprise customers,” said Mark Kidd, EVP & Global General Manager, Data Centers & Asset Lifecycle Management.
“We have strategic priorities looking ahead to the rest of the year. We are launching new data centers in key Indian cities and have signed multiple MoU’s with the Karnataka and Telangana government to set up data centers in Bangalore and Hyderabad, positioning us as market leaders in colocation solutions for hyperscalers and enterprise customers. We are also raising the standards of solutions with advanced hosting infrastructure, cloud-on ramp, network and security,” said Nikhil Rathi, Founder, CEO Web Werks.
