Located in the Kondapur region in Hyderabad, the Tier III quality HYD-1 data center spans 120,000 square feet (11,100 sqm) and offers 5.5MW of IT load in its first phase.

First announced in March 2022, the facility was originally set to go live in Q4 of that year.

The Web Werks – Iron Mountain JV is excited to offer customers easy cloud and carrier access, driven by hyperscale demand for an improved connectivity-rich ecosystem in Hyderabad.”

Mark Kidd, EVP & global general manager, data centers & asset lifecycle management at Iron Mountain, added: “The HYD-1 data center will help the Web Werks – Iron Mountain JV meet the growing demand for connected, compliant and sustainable data center services in the region.
