Web Werks will set up a data centre in Bangalore and invest 750 crores into the project. It has been signed with the Government of Karnataka and the project will be fully operational in two years. The data centre, in the Silicon Valley of India, will have a potential of up to 20 MW with further expansion possibilities. It will be the fourth data centre in Bangalore. The Government of Karnataka will aid this development through facilitating required permissions, registrations, approvals and clearances.
“Digital transformation in India continues to accelerate with support from the Government’s ‘Digital India’ program,” Nikhil Rathi, CEO of Web Werks data centres, said. “Web Werks’ Bangalore data centre will cater to the increasing demand from hyper-scalers and enterprises. We look forward to providing our new customers in South India with highly reliable and scalable solutions combining hosted infrastructure, cloud on-ramp, network, and security. The addition of this data centre is part of our national expansion and we are extremely happy and grateful to the Government of Karnataka for their support”.
The company also operates three Tier 3, carrier-neutral data centres in Mumbai, Pune and Delhi NCR with a combined footprint capability of 225,000 square feet. Earlier this year the company entered into a joint venture with Iron Mountain to accelerate its expansion plans across the country. The firm is planning to invest 150 million dollars over the next two years and anticipates being the majority investor in the venture after the investment period.
