Web Werks launches star data center in Pune, India
Web Werks celebrated a moment of pride, as they unveiled their fourth data center in India.
The national data center provider announced the launch of their second facility in the city of Pune.
“This puts us in the top three data center players in Pune,” celebrated Nikhil Rathi, the CEO of Web Werks.
The new data center spans 35,000 square feet and 5MW of power in its first phase.
“Despite all the odds that surfaced due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the subsequent lockdown, and limited manpower to deploy, the construction work has been completed,” added Mr. Rathi.
Combined with their first data center in Pune, the two data centers now offer a total capacity of 10MW, with rich interconnectivity to major telcos and direct connectivity with the National Internet Exchange of India.
“Web Werks is geared to meet the growing demand for data centers in Pune to serve the needs of both customers in and outside Pune,” said Mr. Rathi.
The new data center was built and designed to Uptime Institute Tier 3 standards and are geared to meeting growing cloud infrastructure demands in the country. The facility will also act as a disaster recovery zone for the existing Web Werks data centers in Mumbai and Delhi.
“We thank our current customers, vendors, and partners who have supported us throughout. We look forward to welcoming our first set of customers in the coming months,” said Mr. Rathi.
Both Pune data centers will also be sustainably powered through Web Werks’ mission to be carbon neutral and contribute to global go-green initiatives.
