CtrlS re­cently launched Ben­galuru’s 1st Tier-4 dat­a­cen­tre (also cer­ti­fied as World’s 1st LEED Plat­inum cer­ti­fied Green dat­a­cen­tre) in Ben­galuru’s Elec­tronic City. The CtrlS Tier4 Dat­a­cen­tre, which will pro­vide mis­sion-crit­i­cal dat­a­cen­tre ser­vices to In­dia’s lead­ing in­ter­net, bank­ing, in­sur­ance, and other clients.

Priyank Kharge, Min­is­ter for IT, BT, and S&T, gov­ern­ment of Kar­nataka spoke at the launch, and said, “I’m happy that CtrlS lat­est dat­a­cen­ter 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.

CtrlS, with its ro­bust net­work ecosys­tem, in­ter­net con­nec­tiv­ity, and own in­fra­struc­ture in­clud­ing dark-fi­bre as­sets, peer­ing, and pri­vate in­ter­net ex­change, pro­vides ex­actly that. The com­pany pow­ers 15 of the For­tune 500 Global Multi­na­tion­als, 25 of the ET 500 com­pa­nies in In­dia in­clud­ing ma­jor banks, in­sur­ance com­pa­nies, tele­com play­ers, ecom­merce, health­care, man­u­fac­tur­ing, re­tail, lo­gis­tics.

The Tier-4 dat­a­cen­tre in Ben­galuru will serve the coun­try’s bank­ing, in­sur­ance, e-com­merce, in­ter­net or­gan­i­sa­tions and other busi­ness en­ter­prises run­ning mis­sion crit­i­cal ap­pli­ca­tions re­quir­ing 100% up­time and mil­i­tary grade se­cu­rity. Fur­ther, the new Ban­ga­lore Dat­a­cen­tre is the First LEED Plat­inum dat­a­cen­ter in the world cer­ti­fied by GBCI (un­der LEED v4 O+M). This green build­ing gen­er­ates its power re­quire­ment us­ing so­lar and other sus­tain­able sources.

Srid­har Pin­na­pureddy, Chair­man and Man­ag­ing Di­rec­tor of CtrlS, com­mented on the green-cer­ti­fi­ca­tion of CtrlS, and said “Our Dat­a­cen­ter has been awarded a Plat­inum LEED cer­tifi­cate by the US Green Build­ing Coun­cil, mak­ing it The only Dat­a­cen­ter in the world to re­ceive such cer­ti­fi­ca­tion. We will con­tinue to in­no­vate and en­sure our busi­ness is both prof­itable and en­vi­ron­men­tally sus­tain­able.”

An in­vest­ment of Rs 1,200 crore has been ear­marked for set­ting up new dat­a­cen­ters, in­vest­ment in R&D and up­grad­ing in­fra­struc­ture across the com­pa­nies five data cen­tres.

Speak­ing at the launch, Mar­garet An­der­son, Se­nior VP of SAP, said, “For SAP, data se­cu­rity is mis­sion crit­i­cal. The choice of dat­a­cen­ter is not eas­ily taken. We’re very thrilled to work with CtrlS; they meet our ev­ery need and sat­isfy our very strin­gent stan­dards.”

Prakash Mallya, MD South Asia, In­tel said, “The amount of data gen­er­ated in In­dia is more than any­where in the world. This is a col­lec­tive chal­lenge that is be­ing ad­dressed by ser­vice providers such as CtrlS and so­lu­tions like this make pos­si­ble a lot of data in­no­va­tion and AI So­lu­tions.”
