Planned grey spaces will host the back-end infrastructure that consists of switch-gear, UPS, transformers, chillers, and generators.

Noteworthy, the facility has been designed with due consideration for users with physical impairment and has also adopted green concepts for sustainability. Solar water heating, photovoltaic and smart lighting, rainwater harvesting and water conservation using low-flow sanitary fittings are some of the elements to this end.

Ultimately, the campus is planned to have 42.5MW of IT load in the coming years, developed on adjacent plots to the 183,000 square feet site.
