BANGALORE, MUMBAI, India and TOKYO, March 27, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- 

- Brand new 100,000 sq. ft Data center Launched in Electronic City to Serve Bangalore's Supply-Constrained Market -

Netmagic, an NTT Communications Company and India's only Data center Infrastructure Lifecycle Management (DILM) service provider, announced on March 27 the launch of its new data center in Electronic City, Bangalore. This 100,000 sq. ft. data center is the first time Netmagic and NTT Communications have collaborated in building an entire facility from the ground up, and thereby, draws from their combined engineering and operations expertise.

"This is a moment of pride for us, as this new data center will give Indian and multi-national enterprises an opportunity to experience the state-of-the-art data centers that NTT Communications operates across the world. The added advantage of Netmagic's excellence in IT infrastructure management and service delivery in the Indian enterprise space, gives this data center the capability of becoming the new benchmark for data centers in India, said Akira Arima, President and CEO, NTT Communications at the unveiling of the data center. He added, "This facility is part of our Global Cloud Vision to become a genuine global ICT partner for enterprises, providing seamless  ICT solutions such as networks, data centers and applications, thereby capitalizing on the trend of enterprises' migrating their on-premise systems to the cloud."

"Bangalore offers a strong growth potential and a supply-constrained market, making this the most opportune moment to launch our new data center. Given the large concentration of data intensive activities in Bangalore, our objective is to accommodate enterprises' demand to house their critical IT infrastructure closer to them, as well as ensure that our data centers have the scalability to meet their growing needs, while offering highly efficient services at the same time," said Sharad Sanghi, MD & CEO, Netmagic. "The launch of this data center will enhance the confidence of our customers who have been part of our 16-year-old journey and strengthen our position as one of India's leading IT infrastructure management players", he added.

This new facility also marks the formal launch of the Nexcenter brand of data center services in India. Under this brand, NTT Communications offers leading-edge data center services across the globe. In India, these services are offered through all 8 Netmagic data centers. 

The data center will deliver Netmagic's entire suite of services including managed co-location, dedicated hosting, cloud computing, IT infrastructure monitoring and management and security. It will provide enterprises customizable hosting space with high power and cooling densities and offer not only individual racks, but also highly secure cages and enclosed server rooms to meet the requirements of large global enterprises. 

Consistent with Netmagic's data center standards, connectivity from multiple telecom providers will be available from physically redundant paths allowing customers to architect on any network of their choice. Extending the 'carrier neutral' approach to building data centers, this facility is designed with high levels of redundancies and a stringent focus on security - both physical and logical. Enterprises can expect further attention to detail with amenities, such as a highly secure material handling system, based on bar coding and multiple checkpoints, adequate customer office space, dedicated storage space and heavy equipment handling systems.

One of the other strengths of this facility is that its location is one of the least prone to natural calamities and importantly, allows ready access to key resources. This makes it ideal for large enterprises, across India and other geographies to establish their disaster recovery and business continuity sites.
