Web Werks- Iron Mountain Data Centres joint venture (JV) is planning to set up two data centres in Chennai, with a total investment of around Rs 18 billion. This announcement follows closely after the company announced the acquisition of a four-acre parcel of land in Ambattur to house its new data centres (CHE-1 and CHE-2) in response to the growing customer demand in the region.

The two data centres will reportedly support 36 megawatts of IT load. This will form part of the JV’s pan-India expansion, which is focused on supporting its clients by leveraging rapid digital growth in the country.
