Two data centers will support growing hyperscale and enterprise demand
Web Werks and Iron Mountain Data Centers JV will construct two new Tier III data centers, CHE-1 and CHE-2, on a four-acre parcel in Ambattur, Chennai, to meet increasing customer demand. These facilities will provide 36 megawatts of IT capacity, strengthening the company’s expanding presence in India with over 90 megawatts of development across Pune, Bangalore, Noida, Mumbai, and Hyderabad.
Chennai is emerging as one of India’s fastest-growing data center markets due to its strong interconnection with Singapore and the rest of Asia, its surplus of power, connectivity to landlocked cities and its ideal geographic location for a disaster recovery site. The region also has a robust ecosystem of cloud service providers, network fabrics and multiple subsea cable landing stations.
