Mumbai: CtrlS Datacenters, an India-based tier IV class datacenter infrastructure provider, has setup its second tier IV datacenter at Mahape in Mumbai. Spread over 2,10,000 sq ft area and with a capacity of 7000 server racks, the datacenter claimed to be the largest tier IV datacenter in the country, reports Pankaj Maru of Cyber Media.

Milton Sikder, CtrlS' Principal Solution Architect said, "It's India's largest datacenter and has the extra high voltage (EHV) power supply from two sub stations that provide uninterrupted power". The datacenter construction is in its final stage and the services would be rolled out by the end of January 2011, he added.

In order to fulfill additional power requirements, the datacenter also co-generate power, using the gas supplied from GAIL. The excess power will be sent back to the power stations. The construction of the datacenter is likely to be completed by November end. Once it's done the pilot trails will also be carried out.
