Web Werks, a leading player in the Indian data center and cloud services sector, has announced the acquisition of an industrial facility in Whitefield, Bengaluru, which would be turned into its first data center. Bengaluru is a growing data center market with high demand for data-driven services, cloud computing, and colocation.
With an estimated IT load of up to 10MW and half of the needed power already on site, the new fully linked data center will offer 110,000 square feet of colocation space backed by a large power capacity of up to 20 MVA of gross power. By Q4 2022, the first phase of delivery should be finished.
The new data center in Bengaluru is aimed at meeting the growing need for Enterprise and Edge data centers. According to Web Werks, the facility would be a great hub for hosting, colocation, cloud on-ramp, storage, and network needs for businesses in Southern India, as well as a disaster recovery facility for firms all over the world.
“The addition of this data center is part of our national expansion, and we are extremely happy and grateful to the Government of Karnataka for their support,” said Nikhil Rathi, CEO at Web Werks data centers.
Web Werks, which formed a joint venture with Iron Mountain Data Centers in early 2021, aims to expand the carrier, cloud, and content-neutral interconnection ecosystem so that consumers may benefit from it.
“We are very pleased with the announcement of this new facility that enhances our ambitions to grow a strong presence in the Indian data center market through the Joint Venture we have with Web Werks,” said Michael Goh, VP & GM, APAC Iron Mountain Data Centers. “This highly interconnected data center in a new market creates great opportunities in one of the fastest growing markets in the country.”
