AdaniConneX - The Power of EdgeConneX and Adani Group

Empowering Digital India

EdgeConneX, in collaboration with Adani Group, has announced a new joint venture to be called AdaniConneX. It will be focused on developing and operating new data centers in multiple markets inside India. Beginning with a series of hyperscale facilities, AdaniConneX will also develop strategically placed Edge Data Centers and Far Edge facilities, creating a highly distributed national platform of infrastructure to help bring cloud, content, and data closer to Indian businesses and consumers alike. Our first data centers are planned and under development in Chennai, Mumbai, Noida-Delhi, Vizag, Pune, and Hyderabad. Like every EdgeConneX data center worldwide today, all AdaniConneX data centers will be managed via the EdgeOS DCIM application for secure remote operations and management of customer’s deployments.

About AdaniConneX

AdaniConneX will combine the strengths of both Adani and EdgeConneX and focus on developing and operating new data centers in multiple markets inside India. To address the rapidly growing need for high quality and reliable IT infrastructure both firms are committed to investing significant capital into the joint venture over the next decade to build out India’s leading green data center platform. The partnership will leverage Adani’s expertise in full-stack energy management, renewable power and real estate development, as well as its experience in building and managing large infrastructure projects throughout India.

To help accelerate the adoption and deployment of sustainable technology, the new Joint Venture will establish captive renewable power plants to ensure that renewable power is available for all AdaniConneX data centers. Power generated from these plants will exclusively support AdaniConneX data center facilities, ensuring that sustainable power sources are not diluted by older, non-renewable sources.

Data Center Markets

AdaniConneX will focus on building a network of hyperscale data centers in India, starting with the Chennai, Navi Mumbai, Noida Delhi, Vizag and Hyderabad markets. Development and construction at these sites have already begun with the first facility to be ready for service in Chennai in 2022.

AdaniConneX will also develop a portfolio of Edge data centers strategically located throughout India that will support the need for more proximate capacity – critical for providers and companies outside traditional core markets. These Edge sites are designed and planned to easily scale with demand and can become significant data center campuses in their own right. Importantly, this pan-Indian platform of hyperscale and hyperlocal data centers can be powered by sustainable and renewable energy as carbon-neutral infrastructure is a key mission for both companies.

All AdaniConneX data centers will include EdgeOS, the industry-leading DCIM platform that allows businesses to perform remote operations and management for any EdgeConneX data center from virtually anywhere.

According to Dan Thompson, Principal Research Analyst at 451 Research, part of S&P Global Market Intelligence, “India is currently undergoing an exciting and impressive growth spurt. The global datacenter industry generally grows with a CAGR averaging 7%, while India as a country is growing at 23%, matching China’s growth.”

Sustainability

AdaniConneX is committed to increasing our Environmental, Social, and Governance footprint by realigning our businesses along the U.N. Sustainable Development goals with emphasis on climate protection, clean energy, diversity, quality education, innovation, economic growth, community outreach, and sustainability.

Integrating Adani’s mission to reach a renewable power generation capacity of 25 GW by 2025, Adani Green Energy will support AdaniConneX sustainable data center efforts and is contributing substantially in narrating India’s goodness story.  The AdaniConneX vision is to be a leading certified Green Data Center provider, committed to implementing clean, sustainable, and renewable energy solutions, to becoming carbon-neutral across its entire footprint, and to focusing on people, safety, and governance to achieve sustainability.

To help facilitate the use of sustainable, renewable technologies, AdaniConneX will establish captive renewable power plants that will exclusively support AdaniConneX data center facilities, ensuring that sustainable power sources are not diluted by older, non-renewable sources.
