Reliance set to inaugurate first data centre at Chennai

Mukesh Ambani, the chairman of Reliance Industries, revealed the upcoming inauguration of a data centre in Chennai in partnership with Canada’s Brookfield.

Last year, Reliance infused approximately Rs 378 crore to enter a joint venture with Brookfield Infrastructure and the US-based real estate investment trust Digital Realty. Each entity holds a 33 per cent stake in this venture.

Ambani, speaking at the Tamil Nadu Global Investors Meet, mentioned Reliance’s investment plans in renewable energy, green hydrogen, and the establishment of a cutting-edge data centre in the state.

With the Indian data centre market poised to grow by 40 per cent annually and attract USD 5 billion in investments by 2025, competition intensifies with Reliance’s entry, pitting it against rivals like Adani Group and Bharti Airtel.

The joint venture will kickstart a 20-megawatt data centre in Chennai and has secured land in Mumbai for an additional 40-MW data centre.

Ambani expressed optimism about Tamil Nadu’s potential to become a trillion-dollar economy under Chief Minister M K Stalin’s leadership. He also highlighted Reliance’s investments in the state’s retail and telecom sectors.
