Princeton Digital Group to open flagship data centre campus in India
Singapore-based data centre provider Princeton Digital Group (PDG) will be building one of the largest new greenfield campuses in the Mumbai region, which is also its first data centre in India.
The data centre is scheduled to be service ready by 2022 and will have 48MW of critical IT capacity across two buildings.
The new campus will serve hyperscalers including internet and cloud companies in the 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 centre campus in India,” said Rangu Salgame, Chairman and CEO of PDG.
“Our commitment to supporting our hyperscale customers in India is part of our core strategy to be a market leader in APAC.
“PDG is the only company with the expertise, agility and backing to have built an unrivalled portfolio of 18 data centres, with over 350MW, across four countries – China, Singapore, Indonesia, and India, all in three years.”
The company said Navi Mumbai is the preeminent cluster within Mumbai, and that with the new campus, PDG has become a “significant player” in the India market.
“Mumbai’s data centre market is estimated to reach a CAGR of 22% for the period 2017-2023,” said Dan Thompson, Principal Research Analyst, Datacentre Services & Infrastructure for 451 Research, part of S&P Global Market Intelligence.
“As the largest data centre 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.”
PDG’s operational model enables it to enter critical hyperscale growth markets like Mumbai and power its customers with globally standardised and sustainable data centre capacity.
“Our ambition is to be one of the largest, pan-national hyperscale data centre providers in the country over the next three years,” added Vipin Shirsat, Managing Director, India at PDG.
