Datacraft Asia Ltd to build up to 10 data centres across India.

A top global Business Process Outsourcing (BPO) firm has chosen Datacraft,

the region's leading IT solutions and services provider, to consolidate its datacentre in India and deploy a robust and scalable network and security infrastructure.

To consolidate the organisation's multiple datacentres across India into one centralised environment, Datacraft deployed a solution utilising a suite of products from Cisco's Nexus datacentre switching platform - a next generation technology that offers efficiency, optimisation, security and scalability. Going forward, Datacraft will continue to support the deployment through a managed services contract.

During the initial phase the company will deploy 6 data centres with more than 66,000  ft2  in Jaipur, Mumbai, Ahmedabad, Ludhiana, Ghaziabad and Faridabad. The data centres will enable the company – among the largest telcos worldwide with some USD8 billion revenues – to launch cloud services across the country .

The other four locations to follow will be Tiruchirapally, Bangalore, Hyderabad and Ranchi. Datacraft will provide the IT infrastructure for the project,  and BSNL will manage the physical infrastructure including space and power.

The company has more than tripled its capex over the past year investing around USD6 billion in  a new broadband network, expansion and modernization.

Commenting on the project, Shailendra Badoni, COO of Datacraft India said, Our client has experienced robust growth in India, and with growth, comes increasing demands on the datacentre. Once we gained a thorough understanding of the requirements, we recommended a solution that would consolidate and secure the datacentre, while ensuring scalability and access to the cloud tomorrow as a way forward. The solution puts the client at the forefront of technological adaptation in India, and we are confident this will benefit the company, as well as its many customers worldwide."

The consolidation of the organisation's multiple datacentres is projected to have a formidable impact on the security of its information, as well as that of its customers, while also bringing the datacentre in line with the company's stringent business continuity requirements. Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) is also expected to be brought down significantly following the completion of the project.

"In India, the BPO space is highly competitive and companies within this sector are constantly on the lookout to maintain their edge. We firmly believe that this datacentre consolidation initiative will assure our client's customers that their data will remain secure and that any potential downtime will be minimised Furthermore, this implementation has given our client a cloud-ready infrastructure that enables it to roll out private cloud services in the immediate future," concluded Badoni.
