ITI adds to its data centre strength in Bangalore and Naini

New facility is part of the undertaking's vigorous  diversification  for a new digital era
Bangalore, May 30, 2018:  Public sector  telecom company ITI Ltd,  has expanded its data centre facility by adding 1000 racks to  the existing  350-rack set up  here and a new Data Centre of 200 racks capacity in its Naini (Allahabad, UP) plant.  While 150 of the new racks in Bangalore are functional, the remining are expected to be progressively commissioned  by September, as new clients sign up.
The new infrastructure -- the largest  public sector data centre in India  -- will enable  government-owned Banks, Central & State Government undertakings,  and other enterprises to have their data located securely within the country. 
 ITI provides whole suite of data center infrastructure & managed services with highest power density that serves as one of the key differentiator allowing its existing customers to populate more compute infrastructure in lesser footprint reducing the operational expenses substantially.
Said S. Gopu, Chairman and Managing Director of ITI, on the occasion of the data centre expansion yesterday: “ITI has been in the Data Centre business for last 10 years. We are very happy to note that many organizations have already shown interest in hosting their data with ITI. This data center expansion underlines  ITI’s deep commitment to the Government of India’s flagship initiatives like “Digital India, Make In India and Smart City.”
“The unique value proposition that ITI  offers, is a multi-density, highly secured and resilient Data Center that can result in optimum investment for the customer. There are several layers of security built up for the data center like physical security, biometric authentication, caging and logical security which includes best in class security measures, all of which meet the international standards like ISO 9001, 20000 and 27001,”  added  K. Alagesan, Director, Production & HR.
The new Data Centre at Naini will work as a Disaster Recovery site for those customers who are hosting in Bengaluru  -- and vice versa.
ITI  which was in doldrums for over a decade with the shrinking of the fixed telephones business, has re invented itself vigorously  recently , branching out into  hosted data centre services, Internet of Things applications,   expanded contract manufacturing capacity including 3-D fabrication,   startup  mentoring and smart city  communication infrastructure.   This saw a remarkable turnaround between fiscal 2016-17 and 2017-18  from a loss of Rs 56 crores to a profit of Rs 102 crores.
