What makes a city business friendly? Good infrastructure, availability of talent and affordable cost of living are three important factors that transpire any place as the most desired one. With India moving up the ‘ease of doing business’ ladder, various state governments have pointed out cities that can turn into business hub to attract global businesses looking at entering the India market. Noida is one among them. The city in the past couple of years has emerged as an important hub for IT firms, startups and electronic companies. What provides Noida an upper hand above Bengaluru and Hyderabad is its proximity to Delhi.
Even the chief minister of the state, Yogi Adiyanath announced last year to develop Noida as the biggest hub of northern India. He called upon industrialists, entrepreneurs and investors to come and invest in the state. According to Nasscom, there are 190 IT companies headquartered in Uttar Pradesh. These companies employ between 3,00,000 and 3,50,000 people and a significant number of these are in Noida itself. Alongside, the city is also emerging as a hotbed for datacenters. Even building regulations are likely to be revised to address the rising demands of the private players looking at setting up data centers in Noida.
However, Noida brings with it its own set of challenges. The city is known for higher air pollution and frequent earthquakes. In fact, Delhi-NCR region shook 11 times in June 2020 alone. Also, the city was the most polluted city in the country this January. These two elements, when come together, become a deadly combination for any data center provider. This constraints several giant players in the segment to establish their base in the city. However, India’s First and Asia’s Largest Rated 4 Hyperscale datacenter, CtrlS differentiates itself from other players through its cutting-edge offerings and innovative solutions.
The company has continuous dual source power supply, and has reported zero-downtime since its inception. It’s datacenter is armed with fire suppression system, has the industry’s lowest PUE, and very low IKW/TR with average cooling density of 8KW/rack. CtrlS Noida facility is constructed to withstand earthquakes and even run smoothly without air pollution disrupting it functionality powered by its in-house air-filtration plant.
Siddharth Jain, Managing Director, EPI India says, “CtrlS is among the best data centers in the country. It follows Rated-4 standards defined by ANSI/TIA-942 and complies with all its guidelines. During our regular audits, we found that company also adheres to the best industry practices and processes in data center operations. With its Noida data center built to withstand earthquakes and contain air-pollution through its air filtration plant, customers can bet on them to safely deploy their mission critical infrastructure.”
A Data Center that Addresses all Concerns
Noida is constantly upgrading. However, decision makers still were skeptical to put their foot in the city. Lack of presence of experienced data center providers, poor history of power supply and few internet service providers were additional concerns other than the critical environmental factors. On the other hand, security of their data became their prime concern. It is predicted that by 2025, the world will store over 200 zettabytes of data but sadly, the world’s top brands across sectors alone might lose between $93 billion and $223 billion due to data breaches (Interbrand and Infosys Study titled ‘Invisible Tech, Real Impact’). Indian data center market alone is expected to grow at a CAGR of 8 per cent over the forecast period of 2021-2026.
With data and data centers growing at hyper speed, it has become critical for IT Leaders to partner with the right data center to nullify any potential chance of data breach or data loss for any reason. CtrlS Noida Data Center is among the pioneers who not just set its foot in Noida but also has established itself as a trusted growth partner. It mitigates any such concerns and more through its plethora of measures such as in-house air filtration plant, earthquake resistance design that complies with zone-5 standards that can withstand up to 8.5 to 9 magnitudes on Richter scale and highly trained professionals who goes out of their way to address client concerns. The company, which is said to be Asia’s largest Rated 4 data center, has been setting new benchmarks in the industry to provide best of the data center services to its customers.
Lastly, CtrlS operates the world’s first LEED Platinum Certified v4 O+M data center and has implemented more than over 80 innovations in energy conservation and efficiency improvement initiatives. As per the company sources, its R&D department has worked on 200 innovations in the last decade to roll-out efficient and customer driven offerings. The company has earned a plethora of certifications and compliances to its name making it a true growth partner for every enterprise in Noida.
