Data center operator Netmagic, which is part of NTT Communications Group, is launching its ninth Indian data center, with the new Mumbai data center – reportedly costing Rs 2,000 crore – to be one of the largest in India.

The 300,000 square foot high density data center will house 2700 racks, with four diverse fibre paths ensuring reliability, 28 MVA of facility power and dual power feeds.

The new center will be a Nexcenter branded data center, delivering Netmagic’s entire suite of services including managed colocation, dedicated hosting, cloud computing, IT infrastructure monitoring and management, managed security, disaster recovery and managed app hosting.

All up, Netmagic’s nine Indian data centers have more than 600,000 square foot of floor space.

Tetsuya Shoji, NTT Communications president and chief executive, says the new Mumbai data center will facilitate Indian and multinational enterprises, in experiencing state-of-the-art data centers that NTT Communications operates around the world.

“The added advantage of Netmagic’s operational excellence in managed services give this data center the capability of becoming the new benchmark for data centers in India,” Shoji says.

He says the facility is part of the company’s Nexcenter brand of global data center services, providing ICT solutions including networks, cloud computing, data centers, security and applications, capitalising on the increasing trend of cloud for enterprises.

Sharad Sanghi, Netmagic managing director and chief executive, says the new data center provides Mumbai with ‘a promising state of the art destination for its IT infrastructure requirements, and one that can abundantly address concerns of scalability, high availability and resilience in performance of hosted assets with an unprecedented ease’.

“Given Mumbai's business importance, Netmagic’s Data Center 5 is poised to soon become the very heart of India’s IT Infrastructure needs, offering the right platform for enterprises and start-ups alike, to grow, scale and innovate in order to take business to the next level,” Sanghi says.
