Data center services company NTT Ltd., has announced the launch of its new hyperscale data center campus in Navi Mumbai, India.

Codenamed NAV1, the new campus in Mahape, Navi Mumbai is planned to feature up to 4 data centers, offering a total power capacity of about 150MW. As announced, the first data center on this campus NAV1A, will span 400,000 square feet, having the capacity to host 5,000 racks and support over 30MW of IT load.

“India is one of the fastest-growing data center markets in the world today, making it a prominent focus area for NTT Ltd.’s global business,” said Masaaki Moribayashi, President and Board Director for NTT Ltd.

“In the wake of the pandemic, and the recent initiatives by the Government of India, especially policies regarding data localization, and digitization of services across different verticals, we’ve witnessed a sharp rise in demand for data centers, cloud, remote-working and cyber security products and services. NTT has invested USD 2 billion to ensure access to world-class, end-to-end infrastructure for India’s digital-first economy and this launch in Navi Mumbai is another step in that direction.”

The new campus in Navi Mumbai takes NTT’s data center footprint in the country to 12 facilities, with more than 2.5 million square feet and 220MW of total power capacity. This launch also comes on the heels of a new NTT data center going live in its Chandivali campus.

“We are happy to launch our new hyperscale data center campus in Mahape. This along with our Chandivali campus gives clients the unique opportunity to plan their IT across multiple availability zones connected by our Data Center Interconnect (DCI) fabric within the Mumbai region. And with the Mumbai landing station for the MIST cable system, connecting Singapore, Myanmar and India, they will be able to leverage NTT’s infrastructure for global connectivity,” said Sharad Sanghi, Managing Director, NTT Ltd. in India.

About a month ago, NTT and Quang Dung Technology Distribution Joint Stock Company (QD.TEK) announced a joint venture for the development and operation of a new 6MW data center in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam.
