NNT launches a new high-density and hyper scale data center in Mumbai with 375,000 square feet of colocation space, having the capacity to host 5000 racks and over 30 MW of load. The company plans to double its capacity in the next two to three years to strengthen its hybrid ICT solutions and support the digital transformations of customers in India.
30 percent increasing capacity
The new Mumbai 7 Data Center facility will expand its data center capacity in India by 30 percent. The current data center footprint expansion in India is part of its ongoing growth strategy of the Global Data Centers division which operates the third-largest data center platform in the world, with over 160 data centers spanning more than 20 countries and regions.
Masaaki Moribayashi, Senior Executive Vice President, Services of NTT, said,
“India has been a key market for NTT Ltd’s data center portfolio. Organizations today demand an ever-expanding global platform to reach their growing digital business objectives. That’s why we continue to expand our portfolio of state-of-the-art data centers in new and existing markets that complement our global geographic footprint and support our clients as their demand increases for reliable, robust cloud services, cloud communications, digital entertainment, and new technologies such as artificial intelligence.”
NTT’s Global Data Centers and Cloud Infrastructure division has also launched its first 50 MW Solar Photovoltaic (PV) power plant in Solapur. The company’s new Solapur power plant is designed to meet 83% of the power needed by the Mumbai data centers. The capacity can be expanded to generate another 50 MW solar power in the future, said the company.
