To build two data centers in Chennai, a joint venture between Web Werks and Iron Mountain Data Centers will invest Rs 1,800 crore. To house these data centers (CHE-1 and CHE-2) the JV purchased a four-acre plot of land in Ambattur, Chennai.

Mark Kidd, EVP & global general manager, data centres & asset lifecycle management, Iron Mountain Data Centers, said, “Our Pan-India expansion is focused on supporting our customers through their digital transformations and leveraging the rapid digital growth in the country. We look forward to bringing our core competencies of energy efficient, network dense and highly secure colocation data centers to this thriving market.”
The joint venture had previously declared the opening of MUM-2, its first brand-new data center, in Navi Mumbai.

The data center, which occupies a 120,000 square foot campus, was constructed within 18 months of its announcement despite difficulties brought on by Covid-19 and delays in the world's supply chain. The MUM-2 is a Tier 3-designated data center with a gross power handling capacity of 10MVA. Its proximity to the Web Werks Mumbai-1 DC in Navi Mumbai enables users to benefit from the ecosystem's existing robust connections.

The two data centers will sustain a 36 megawatt IT load and are built to Tier III specifications.

This investment shows both the increase in demand for data centers as well as the corporations' dedication to assisting India in its digital transformation journey.

According to Web Werks, this expansion considerably strengthens the company's quickly expanding pan-Indian network, which is expected to power over 90 megawatts of new development across important markets including Pune, Bangalore, Noida, Mumbai, and Hyderabad.

The CEO added that the company's pan-Indian expansion is principally concentrated on assisting clients with their digital transitions while capitalizing on the sector's explosive growth.

Reliable data center infrastructure is becoming increasingly vital as India moves swiftly toward digitization.

To address this rising demand for data center services, Web Werks has built these facilities in strategic locations across India.

To sum up, the joint venture between Web Werks and Iron Mountain Data Centers is a large undertaking with the goal of enhancing India's digital infrastructure.

This investment shows both the increase in demand for data centers as well as the corporations' dedication to assisting India in its digital transformation journey.

These advances will be crucial in guaranteeing trustworthy and robust digital services across the nation as we advance in this digitized era.
