NTT, a leading global IT infrastructure and services company, is dedicated to making the data center industry more environmentally friendly. Its most recent effort in this direction is the groundbreaking deployment of Liquid Immersion Cooling (LIC) and Direct Contact Liquid Cooling (DCLC) technologies. At its Navi Mumbai Data Center, the company recently celebrated the largest and first-ever deployment of this kind in APAC.
The one-of-its-kind facility, which is a part of its Mahape campus, has a 4.8 MW capacity and 13,740 square feet of space. The facility is designed to accommodate up to 4 data centers with a combined IT load of 150 MW. India becomes the first country to implement these alternative cooling technologies across NTT’s global data center platform.
This successful deployment, which was a project with many “firsts,” was the result of the collaboration of the client, PhonePe, and partners like Sudlows and Dell. The teams developed a number of creative solutions that enabled them to get past several design and engineering obstacles and convert a conventionally cooled data center into one that uses LIC and DCLC cooling methods. The facility’s overall energy efficiency has increased by roughly 30% as a result of this change.
According to Sharad Sanghi, Managing Director of NTT Ltd. in India & Acting Senior Executive Vice President, Data Center and Marine Cable, NTT Ltd, at NTT, they are guided by the principle of universal wellness, a people-first approach for their own personnel, the communities they operate in, and the overall global environment.
This facility’s use of green data center technologies will serve as a significant endorsement of alternative cooling methods. As the largest data center operator in India, they are aware of the potential for DCLC and LIC cooling to drastically reduce power usage in upcoming data centers. They have progressed farther toward creating a linked future on a global scale in a sustainable and responsible manner by effectively integrating these cutting-edge processes.
NTT has already committed to long-term goals of achieving zero emissions and has made significant investments in India’s solar and wind energy industries. Its current emphasis is on utilizing cutting-edge alternative cooling technologies. The introduction of green data center technologies at this new facility heralds their beginnings on a worldwide scale.
