Part of the New York-based 451 Group, The Uptime Institute is an independent provider of thought leadership, certification, education and professional services for the global Data Center and emerging Digital Infrastructure industry. Uptime Institute created the standard Tier Classification System as a means to effectively evaluate data center infrastructure in terms of a business' requirements for system availability. The Tier Classification System provides the data center industry with a consistent method to compare typically unique, customized facilities based on expected site infrastructure performance, or uptime.

The DC has a total capacity of 10 Megawatts, and is optimized for high density computing. Each floor in the Data Centre is based on a concurrently maintainable modular design, and has floor loading of 1,500 Kg per square meter. The Data Centre’s portfolio of services will include infrastructure services, core services, managed services, consultancy services, enterprise risk management services and hosted applications.

Green Quotient

The highlight of this Data Centre is its high energy efficiency and other environment-friendly features. It is designed to achieve 1.6 or less PUE (Power Usage Effectiveness), a measure of the total energy input versus the effective IT output. Lighting, electrical and computer systems in the Data Centre are designed for maximum energy efficiency and minimum environmental impact. Low emission generators and alternative energy technologies such as photovoltaic cells are used for outdoor lighting. The Access Control integrated lighting systems work only when there are people in the room/building, ensuring optimum use of energy. All the waste are recycled and re-used at the Data Centre making it a ‘zero discharge building.’ Additionally, the building is equipped with rain water harvesting system.

A domain leader in Data Center services, Sify holds an enviable record of ensuring 100% uptime for the last 6 years across all of its Data Centers.

Commenting on the launch, Kamal Nath, CEO, Sify Technologies, said, “Sify is emerging as an ICT Solutions and Services company with a strong focus on Cloud and Managed Services. Our Data Centre strategy is the epicenter of our transformation story. In the past 12 years, we have built 5 Data Centres, 6 State Data Centres and have recently connected over 36 Data Centres across India with our high-capacity data network. Sify has invested around $200m in building Network and Data Centre capabilities over the last 5 years.

Thomas Baehr, Senior Director of Business Development, Uptime Institute, had this to add, “We are pleased to certify that Sify’s fifth Data Center at Noida, has been awarded Tier III Certification of Design Documents by the Uptime Institute. The DC Design adheres to every one of our stringent criteria for data center infrastructure for the business community. In working with Sify, a domain leader in the DC space in India, we developed an appreciation of their commitment to customer’s demands and foresight about the market while seeking Tier Certification of Design Documents.”
