Exuberant Support for Data Services (ESDS) has launched its second data center in Mahape, Navi Mumbai.

The 80,000 square foot data center will offer private cloud and eNlight Public cloud hosting as well as the company’s newest offering eNlight 360, an on-premise hybrid cloud platform.

The company has 300 enterprise clients in the banking, financial services and insurance, government, retail and education sectors.

The launch of the new data center takes ESDS’s total data center footprint to more than 1 lakh square foot across its Mumbai and Nashik data centers.

The Uptime Institute-certified data center is part of a memorandum of understanding inked with the Government of Maharashtra with a Rs. 200 crores investment.

Devendra Fadnavis, chief minister of Maharashtra, says the state has always been among the leading destinations, providing quality infrastructure to companies and creating employment opportunities, especially in the IT sector.

“Additionally, the country needs innovative technology solutions like the ESDS patented cloud and data centers to accelerate businesses in today’s digital economy,” Fadnavis says.

Piyush Somani, ESDS chief executive and managing director, says the company is keen to partner the government’s Make in India and Digital India campaigns to help drive a connected economy, amplify business growth and project India as a innovation hub.
