Singapore-based Princeton Digital Group (PDG), Asia’s leading data center provider, announced today its plan to build one of the largest new greenfield campuses in the Mumbai region, its first data center in India, scheduled to be service-ready in 2022.
PDG’s Navi Mumbai project will have 48MW of critical IT capacity across two buildings. The new campus is designed to serve leading hyperscalers including internet and cloud companies in the fast-growing Mumbai region, with infrastructure built to hyperscale design and standards to support the massive scale requirements of customers in the region.
“We are delighted to announce the build of our first data center campus in India. Our commitment to supporting our hyperscale customers in India is part of our core strategy to be a market leader in APAC,” said Rangu Salgame, Chairman and CEO of PDG. “PDG is the only company with the expertise, agility, and backing to have built an unrivalled portfolio of 18 data centers, with over 350MW, across four countries —China, Singapore, Indonesia, and India — all in three years.”
Mumbai is the most exciting market in India and Navi Mumbai is the preeminent cluster within Mumbai. With this campus, PDG has become a significant player in the India market. “Our ambition is to be one of the largest, pan national hyperscale data center providers in the country over the next three years,” added Vipin Shirsat, Managing Director, India at PDG.
“Mumbai’s data center market is estimated to reach a CAGR of 22% for the period 2017-2023. As the largest data center market in India, Mumbai houses 31% of the nation’s colocation footprint even as providers move further inland through Navi Mumbai, which is considered a submarket of Mumbai,” said Dan Thompson, Principal Research Analyst, Datacenter Services & Infrastructure for 451 Research, part of S&P Global Market Intelligence.
PDG’s operational model enables it to rapidly enter critical hyperscale growth markets like Mumbai and power its customers with globally standardized, secure, reliable, and sustainable data center capacity.
