New facility supports up to 100MW of power
Enterprise communications service provider Tulip Telecom has partnered with IBM to design and help build a data centre facility in India to deliver new cloud and networking services.
Tulip Telecom has also partnered with IBM to design an offering that could scale to its customers’ infrastructure needs quickly and efficiently.
IBM has deep expertise in building modular data centres worldwide, besides its enterprise-focused, secure SmartCloud services.
Further, IBM’s data centre and SmartCloud infrastructure services will support Tulip in extending its existing offerings to meet customer demand.
The new data centre is built in an area covering more than 900,000 square feet and 20 Enterprise Modular Data Centres in a four tower building and is tailored to support up to 100MW of power.
Tulip Telecom chairman and managing director Lt. Col. HS Bedi said Tulip Telecom’s goal is to be the largest data connectivity and managed services provider, and to succeed Tulip needed a modernised data centre that could support both business and operational requirements.
"With a project of such magnitude at hand, we chose to partner with IBM because the company has global expertise in designing and building innovative, energy efficient cloud data centers that should support our needs now and in the future," said Bedi.
IBM Global Site and Facilities Services vice-president Steven Sams said a data centre that can last decades when information technology is changing every two to three years is critical for Tulip to support its growing business.
"IBM’s data center and SmartCloud services will allow Tulip to take the next step in meeting the fluctuating demands of its customers, as well as meet India’s environmental efficiency regulations," said Sams.
