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).

David Temkin, co-founder of the Open-IX Association, comments, "the Open-IX Association is pleased to grant OIX-2 certification to Web Werks data center facility in Mumbai.”

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