Technology services company NTT said its Global Data Centers division has launched a new data centre in Mumbai.
The facility operates with 375,000 sq.ft of colocation space, and will offer the capacity to host 5,000 racks and over 30MW of load. The new “Mumbai 7 Data Centre” facility will expand NTT’s data center capacity in India by 30 percent.
“We continue to expand our portfolio of data centres in markets that complement our global geographic footprint and support our clients as their demand increases for cloud services, cloud communications, digital entertainment, and new technologies such as artificial intelligence,” Masaaki Moribayashi, senior executive vice president, Services of NTT, said in a statement.
With the addition of Mumbai data centre, NTT’s data center division India currently operates with 10 data centres across four major cities with over 1.5 million sq. ft. and over 150MW of power.
The company plans to double its capacity in the next 2-3 years to strengthen its ICT solutions and support the digital transformations of customers in India.
NTT said it plans to invest around $2 billion on the expansion of data centres, networks, and solar power projects in India.
