Web Werks has announced the acquisition of a standalone building that will convert to its first data centre in the commercial business district of Hyderabad. The locality has emerged as a prominent business hub, owing to its proximity to the IT corridor of Hyderabad. The new highly interconnected data centre will offer 120,000 square feet of colocation space supported by a significant power capacity of up to 10 MVA of gross power with an expected IT load of up to 6MW. The first phase of delivery is expected to be completed by Q4 2022. The new Hyderabad development will strengthen Web Werks presence within the Indian region.
