Princeton Digital Group (PDG) Navi Mumbai project will include two buildings with 48MW of critical IT capacity. The new campus is designed to serve leading hyperscalers in the fast-growing Mumbai area, including internet and cloud companies, with infrastructure built to hyperscale architecture and standards to support customers’ large scale requirements.
“We are ecstatic to announce the construction of our first data center campus in India,” says the company. “Part of our core strategy to be a market leader in APAC is to help our hyperscale customers in India,” said PDG Chairman and CEO Rangu Salgame. “PDG is the only organization with the experience, agility, and financial backing to have developed an unrivalled portfolio of 18 data centers, totaling over 350MW, in just three years across four countries: China, Singapore, Indonesia, and India.”
Mumbai is India’s most vibrant market, and Navi Mumbai is the city’s most important cluster. PDG has established itself as a major player in the Indian market as a result of the establishment of this campus. “Over the next three years, our aim is to become one of the country’s largest pan-national hyperscale data center providers,” said Vipin Shirsat, PDG’s Managing Director for India.
“For the period 2017-2023, the data center market in Mumbai is expected to develop at a CAGR of 22%. Mumbai, India’s largest data center sector, houses 31% of the country’s colocation footprint, even as providers shift further inland through Navi Mumbai, which is considered a submarket of Mumbai,” said Dan Thompson, Principal Research Analyst, Datacenter Services & Infrastructure for 451 Research, a division of S&P Global Market Intelligence.
PDG’s operating model allows it to quickly reach critical hyperscale growth markets like Mumbai and provide global standardized, stable, reliable, and long-term data center capacity to its customers.
