Essar Capital is consolidating their various on-premise data centers into a single location at Yotta’s NM1 data center at Panvel, Navi Mumbai, India.
Essar Capital is the investment manager of Essar Global Fund, itself the holding company of Indian construction company Essar Group. Essar Capital monitors and manages the entire portfolio of investments owned by EGFL.
NM1 now hosts 100+ applications of the EGFL (Essar Global Fund Ltd.), including collaboration tools, communication applications, SAP ERP, HR-related applications, and multiple engineering applications, with Yotta providing end-to-end managed colocation services.
Yotta’s uptime appeals to Essar
The company decided to consolidate and migrate after growing complexity of managing on-premise data centers began creating bottlenecks, leading to high costs as well as increased strain on internal IT resources.
“We decided to colocate to a multi-tenant data center service provider that could not only modernize our IT infrastructure but also assure us of uninterrupted services, 100 percent uptime, iron-clad security, scalability, and came with a customer-focused mindset,” said N Jayantha Prabhu, CIO, Essar Global and Business Head, India & SAARC, AGC Networks
“After evaluating multiple options available in the market, we decided to migrate to Yotta NM1. What moved the deal in their favor was the Uptime Institute Tier IV certification. While evaluating multiple options available in the market, we also looked closely at parameters such as connectivity, redundant power, and most importantly, the security of the facility, both physical and virtual. Yotta ticked all these boxes and many more, offering cutting-edge technologies.
Located in Hiranandani Fortune City to the east of Navi Mumbai, Yotta’s 50MW NM1 facility is the world’s second largest Uptime Tier IV data center, and largest in Asia.
“With our innovative and comprehensive managed colocation and cloud offerings, Yotta has emerged as a trusted partner for an organization’s digital transformation journey. Being chosen by a large conglomerate like Essar Global is a testimony to it,” said Yotta CEO Sunil Gupta. “As we believe in delivering enterprise-grade, high quality solutions to our customers, this kind of success story will reinforce our commitment towards the Indian market.”
