NTT India launches Hyperscale Data Centre campus NAV1A in Navi Mumbai


Tokyo-based IT services company NTT has revealed its new hyperscale data center, NAV1A in Navi Mumbai. The new data center has a capacity of around 5000 racks and supports around 30 MW of IT load.

NTT is one of the world's largest data center operators, with around 1300 MW of data center capacity today, which includes a large development pipeline of around 25% increase in capacity across more than 20 countries and regions across the globe.

NAV1A is one of the first data centers in India to have deployed alternative cooling solutions, which includes direct contact liquid cooling and liquid immersion cooling. These innovative solutions, deployed at scale, have the potential to significantly improve a data center's Power Usage Effectiveness.

Executive Opinion

Masaaki Moribayashi, President and Board Director for NTT Ltd. said, "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. 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."

Sharad Sanghi, Managing Director, NTT Ltd. in India, said, "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. Our projects are progressing at a fast pace, and clients can also look forward to an ‘availability triangle’ in the Mumbai region with hyperscale campuses in Chandivali, Mahape, and Airoli. NTT is committed to building the connected future, delivering edge-to-cloud ICT solutions across hosted infrastructure, network, security, collaboration, and managed services."

More about the data center

The NAV1A campus in Mahape, Navi Mumbai, is planned with the capacity of around four data centers, reaching around 150 MW of facility load. In the Mumbai region, NTT has three data center campuses in Airoli, Chandivali, and Mahape.

The $11 billion company has 12 data centers in India spread across Bangalore, Mumbai, Chennai, and Delhi-NCR, with a total facility power capacity close to 220 MW. It is coming with a 6-acre data center in Chennai and a similar one in Noida that is expected to go live by early next year.

These are parts of the planned $2 billion investment that the company has earmarked in the year 2020 for scaling its infrastructure capacity.
