Chennai, India, July 31, 2014: Sify Technologies Limited, a player in Managed Enterprise, Network, IT and Software services in India with global delivery capabilities, today announced the launch of ‘ClouDCentre’, at Rabale (www.rabaledatacentre.com) Mumbai, a next-generation cloud-enabled Data Centre.
This follows the recent launch of Sify’s Tier 3 Green Data Centre at Noida, NCR, which was design-certified by the Uptime Institute. This facility was built to the same exacting specification, but adds additional resiliency through its unique dual-cooling system and on-premise EHV substation.
The ‘ClouDCentre’ has a modular design with advanced technology to cater to high density load and will eventually offer 2,80,000 square feet of built up space and 65,000 square feet of raised floor space. Designed and built as per global industry standards, the centre has unparalleled security, and was specifically designed to meet the exacting requirements of Cloud service operators and enterprises planning to migrate to private or hybrid cloud environments.
Additionally, all of Sify’s major Data Centres and Cloud infrastructure in India are connected through ‘Cloudcover’, a robust fiber network connecting a total of 36 Data Centres from the leading providers in India. This gives Sify the flexibility to host Data Centres, Near Data Centres, DR and Cloud Applications at different locations with different service providers.
The ‘ClouDCentre’ has high energy efficiency and other environment-friendly features. The Data Centre has a dedicated substation of 20 MVA and dual power distribution till the rack through physically separate raisers supported by N+N Switch boards, UPS and PDUs, and dedicated transformer and diesel generators. Sify’s data centre portfolio of services include Enterprise Risk Management Services, Infrastructure Services, Core Services, Managed Services, Professional Services and Hosted Applications.
CEO of Sify Technologies Kamal Nath, said, “Data Centre is the epicentre of our current phase of growth journey. Having invested immensely in building Data Centres and Cloud capabilities, Sify has introduced its ‘ClouDCentre’ in India. Today, organizations are looking for the ability to react quickly to market or business changes — through faster provisioning of IT resources and an elastic approach to consumption. With this launch, Sify raises the bar for the conventional Data Centre into a plug-play scenario thus saving valuable time in the GTM strategies for Enterprises. We are extremely excited to be launching this facility, and look forward to setting more such industry benchmarks in the future.”
