The Chennai data centre will start with an estimated capacity of 20 MW. It data centres in Bengaluru and Hyderabad will begin with 10 MW capacity each. Bengaluru data centre will have a potential of up to 20 MW with expansion possibilities.

Web Werks and Iron Mountain in February announced a joint venture for the US-based firm to invest $150 million.

Web Werks CEO Nikhil Rathi said: “Chennai has the biggest potential after Mumbai due to the cable landing stations, and some domestic consumption. Bengaluru will remain a regional hub for local consumption of IT, etc. Hyderabad is a location for IT and pharmaceuticals.”

In March 2021, Web Werks also announced setting up of a standalone greenfield data centre in Navi Mumbai with an estimated investment of Rs 400 crore. It will be spread over 1 lakh sq with 12.5 MW of power and is expected to start operations by mid-2022.
