Bengaluru’s 1st Tier-4 data center launched by CtrlS
CtrlS has launched Bengaluru’s 1st Tier-4 data center (also certified as World’s 1st LEED Platinum certified Green data center) in Bengaluru’s Electronic City. The CtrlS Tier4 Data Center, which will provide mission-critical data center services to India’s leading internet, banking, insurance, and other clients, was launched at a grand event, and was attended by Shri Priyank Kharge, Hon’ble Minister for IT, BT, S&T, Government of Karnataka; Margarent Anderson, Senior VP, SAP Labs India; Sameer Garde, President, CISCO; and Prakash Mallya, Managing Director, Intel India, and other IT industry leaders.
The new CtrlS data center will provide India’s growing tech giants with reliable, robust data management and distribution networks, with near 0% downtime, 100% redundancy and Industry’s lowest PUE of 1.35.
Shri Priyank Kharge, Minister for IT, BT, and S&T, Government of Karnataka, spoke at the launch, and said, “I am happy that CtrlS latest data center is being situated in Bengaluru. Our city, which is already the leader in software services is also fast becoming a hub for global organizations and I'm sure the CtrlS datacenter will be the start of an ecosystem.”
As internet use expands across the country, and as more and more users adopt to mobile internet and content creation, the requirements for an “always-on” datacentre is even more keenly felt. Organisations such as Google, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and other social media providers will need to ensure 0% downtime for their services. Similarly, with growing e-commerce and online payments for products and services, including mobile apps and websites, a reliable, robust infrastructure ecosystem is desired combined with highest uptime SLA and robust security.
The Tier-4 data center in Bengaluru will serve the country’s banking, insurance, e-commerce, internet organizations and other business enterprises running mission critical applications requiring 100% uptime and military grade security. CtrlS Bengaluru Tier-4 datacenter is designed to provide near 100% uptime. While a regular Tier-3 Data Center usually faces about 4 hours of downtime in any calendar year, a Tier-4 Data Center has advanced infrastructure and design features that reduce downtime to less than 30 minutes in any given year. But CtrlS’s Tier-4 data centers spread across Hyderabad, Mumbai and Noida have established industry records. Over the last 10 years, CtrlS data centers have experienced no downtime whatsoever and have maintained 100% uptime.
Sridhar, Chairman & Managing Director, CtrlS, commented on the green-certification of CtrlS, and said, “Our Data Center has been awarded a Platinum LEED certificate by the US Green Building Council, making it the only data center in the world to receive such certification. We will continue to innovate and ensure our business is both profitable and environmentally sustainable.”
He further added that a lot of data flows through the silicon city. The future plan is convert all our DCs to be solar powered in the next five years. Solar-powered DCs are sustainable and the long-term competitiveness is much better.
An investment of Rs.1,200 crore has been earmarked for setting up new data centers,
