Web Werks has announced that its 30,000 square feet carrier-neutral colocation data center space in Mumbai has received a DC OIX-2 certification from the Open-IX Association (OIX).

“We are excited to see better standards for data center interconnection and Internet exchanges continuously being adopted within key markets across the globe."
