Bharti Airtel’s data center subsidiary Nxtra Data Limited on Tuesday announced that it will set up two new data center campuses in Mumbai and Pune.
The company, which already has two large data centres in Maharashtra, in addition to Edge data centres across Mumbai, Navi Mumbai, Thane, Pune, Nagpur and Kolhapur, has signed a memorandum of understanding with the Maharashtra government for the new campuses.

Nxtra currently has a portfolio of 10 large data centres and more than 120 Edge data centres providing customers with co-location services, cloud infrastructure, managed hosting, data backup, disaster recovery, and remote infrastructure management.
“We are on a mission to support the growth of India’s digital ecosystem with state-of-the-art and highly secure data center infrastructure,” said Rajesh Tapadia, CEO, Nxtra Data. “We are delighted to add to our footprint in Maharashtra as part of our nationwide expansion plans to serve the evolving requirements of digital India.”
