Yotta Infrastructure announced that Essar Capital, having investments worth around USD 14 billion, has consolidated their on-premise datacenters into Yotta’s Yotta NM1 datacenter at Panvel, Navi Mumbai.
This move was prompted by growing demand of IT enabled services and new technologies by various Essar companies. To remain focused on supporting business innovation instead of managing datacenters, the Essar IT team awarded a contract for end-to-end managed co-location services to Yotta Infrastructure.
The contract was awarded after a thorough evaluation of all options available in the market – a process that spanned across a year.
Yotta NM1 (world’s second largest Uptime Tier IV datacenter) now hosts 100+ applications of the EGFL (Essar Global Fund), including collaboration tools, communication applications, SAP ERP, HR-related applications, and multiple engineering applications. The fault-tolerant nature of Yotta NM1 datacenter, ensures enhanced availability of these applications that are accessed by more than 7000+ users globally.
“We decided to co-locate to a multi-tenant datacenter service provider that could not only modernise our IT infrastructure but also assure us of uninterrupted services, 100 percent uptime, iron-clad security, scalability, and came with a customer-focused mind-set,” said N Jayantha Prabhu, CIO, Essar Global and Business Head, India & SAARC, AGC Networks.
