Web Werks-Iron Mountain establishes first data centre in India

The Web Werks-Iron Mountain Data Centers (IMDC) Joint Venture has opened MUM-2, its first greenfield data centre in Navi Mumbai. In 2021, Iron Mountain formed a joint venture with Web Werks.

Iron Mountain President and CEO William L. Meaney presided over the inauguration ceremony, which was held in Rabale, Navi Mumbai, in the presence of Web Werks and Iron Mountain global leadership teams, partners, and government dignitaries.

Despite challenges caused by global supply disruptions and Covid-19, the data centre was built within 18 months of its announcement on a 120,000 square foot campus. The MUM-2 is a Tier 3 data centre with a gross power capacity of 10MVA. It is located next to the Web Werks Mumbai-1 DC in Navi Mumbai, allowing customers to benefit from the existing rich interconnection ecosystem. The data centre provides connectivity to Tier-1 carriers, 200+ ISPs, and three of India's largest peering exchanges, as well as cloud on-ramp to major hyperscale cloud providers.

Nikhil Rathi, CEO of Web Werks said, "We are pleased to announce the second data center facility in Navi Mumbai. Our existing data center in Mumbai is almost fully leased, and we see increased demand for our services from various customer segments. This demand will further be bolstered by the growing digitization, the rollout of the 5G network in India, and rising cloud adoption. With this new data center and our team of industry veterans, we will be able to support demand and offer a connectivity-rich ecosystem.’’

“The opening of Iron Mountain and Web Werks’ first greenfield data center marks an important step in advancing our Joint Venture’s position as one of India’s leading data center providers,” said William L. Meaney, President, and Chief Executive Officer, Iron Mountain. “The investment in this new facility reflects our commitment to investing in new highly connected, secure, and compliant data centers in the APAC region that will serve our hyperscale, network, content and enterprise customers.”

The Web Werks-Iron Mountain Data Centers JV previously announced that it had signed Memorandums of Understanding with the governments of Karnataka and Tamil Nadu to establish data centres in Bangalore and Hyderabad. The standalone data centres are nearing completion, and the first data halls will be available in the first half of 2023. Web Werks, as part of the joint venture, will take part in the third ground-breaking ceremony at the Global Investors Summit in Uttar Pradesh in 2022, and will announce plans to invest in a new hyperscale data centre in Noida. The Web Werks-Iron Mountain Data Centers joint venture will continue to expand in existing markets such as Mumbai, Pune, and Noida, as well as invest in new markets such as Chennai.
