Tulip Telecom and IBM build India's largest data centre to address rapid growth of mobile consumers in emerging markets

7 Feb 2012 Bangalore - IBM has worked with Tulip Telecom Ltd. to design and help build the largest data centre facility in India to deliver new Cloud and networking services. Tulip Telecom is a telecommunications network and data service provider, reaching more than 2,000 cities and towns throughout India. With the number of people using mobile devices to access the Internet increasing dramatically, IDC estimates that the amount of information managed by enterprises will grow 50 times over the next decade, and in the next two years alone the number of servers installed will increase by 49 percent over those installed today.

IBM’s data centre and SmartCloud infrastructure services will support Tulip in dramatically extending its existing offerings to quickly meet customer demand. Covering more than 900,000 square feet, and 20 Enterprise Modular Data Centers in a four tower building, the facility is engineered to support up to 100 megawatts of power, making it the third largest data centre in the world.

Tulip Telecom teamed with IBM to design a solution that could easily scale to its customers' infrastructure needs quickly and efficiently. IBM brings deep expertise in building modular data centres worldwide, and its enterprise-focused, secure SmartCloud services.

"Our goal is to be the largest data connectivity and managed services provider, and to succeed we needed a modernized data centre that could support both business and operational requirements", stated Lt. Col. HS Bedi, Chairman and Managing Director, Tulip Telecom Ltd. "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 centres that should support our needs now and in the future."

The new highly efficient data centre is designed to international green building standards and engineered with power, chillers, cooling, rack layout and uninterrupted power supply systems.

"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", stated Steven Sams, Vice President, Global Site and Facilities Services, IBM. "IBM's data centre 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."

IBM has designed and delivered more than 1,000 modular data centres for customers around the globe helping customers save up to 30 percent in energy costs per year compared to traditional data centres.
