Upcoming Data Centre Park in Navi Mumbai
Adding to the remarkable developments in Navi-Mumbai, a 100 acres data centre is proposed in Kharghar and also at Khalapur in the neighboring Raigad district will be managed by corporation. It is observed that the internet subscribers in India are rapidly increasing in numbers due to a combination of factors such as a decrease in the number of mobile prices and proliferation of cheap smartphones or other related devices.
As per experts, connectivity with undersea cables, low seismic activity, and power availability are the prime drivers for these investments. At present the data is carried through sub-sea cables and is being stored in data centers across the globe. However, only 2% of it has its footprints in India in a global capacity. Moreover, due to the lack of quality infrastructure with consistent power through edge data centers, so far no core data has been installed in the country. However, Navi Mumbai has several advantages like better connectivity with 10 submarine telecom cable landings, unlike Chennai. The construction of the park is expected to start by January 2020.
