IBM, Tulip Building World’s Third Largest Data Centre in India

IBM and Tulip Telecom have joined forces to create the largest data centre in India through the use of advanced green design.

According to an analysis by IDC, a huge chunk of the population in India is used to accessing internet through their mobile phones and that user base is increasing constantly. Due to this the telecom provider will be required to handle huge amounts of data thus making it mandatory for them to install more and more servers. IBM's data centre and SmartCloud infrastructure services would be playing a key role in handling such large amounts of data.

IBM has come to the rescue and is going to build 20 Enterprise Modular Data Centres which will be accommodated in an area of 900000 square feet. The facility will be spread across four tower buildings and will be the third largest data centre in the world.

With the help of this data centre, Tulip will be capable to meet the infrastructure needs of its prospects effectively.

"Our goal is to be the largest data connectivity and managed services provider, and to succeed we needed a modernized data center that could support both business and operational requirements," said Lt. Col. HS Bedi, Chairman and Managing Director, Tulip Telecom Ltd.
