PhonePe, a Fintech platform, has launched its first green data center in India using equipment and services from Dell Technologies and NTT. It will assist the business in developing sustainable and effective infrastructure to expand its operations throughout the country.
According to the company, with its effective data protection, low power consumption, simple operations, and cloud solutions, the green data center is expected to present PhonePe with new options in data management.
The 13,740 sq.ft, 4.8 megawatt facility is situated in Mahape, Navi Mumbai, and was constructed using cutting-edge alternative cooling technologies like Direct Contact Liquid Cooling (DCLC) and Liquid Immersion Cooling (LIC). The data centre’s Dell PowerEdge servers will use less energy while still delivering performance, streamlined management, and intelligent automation.
PhonePe’s mission is to use technology to provide every Indian the same chance to access financial services and free up the flow of money. This data center will not only help them scale their business more smoothly, but it will also help them lower their carbon footprint, according to Burzin Engineer, PhonePe’sCo-founder, and Chief Reliability Officer.
Furthermore, for Manish Gupta, Vice President and General Manager, Infrastructure Solutions Group, Dell Technologies India, the data center will significantly reduce power consumption by 26%, saving a lot of money on the power bill and the organization will achieve the same performance with the facility in place as they would in a conventional setting, but without having to give up either manageability or scalability.
“This is the first commercial liquid-immersed data centre in India, equal to the size of about five tennis courts lined up. Here we are saving about 1.5 megawatts that can power about 1,900 homes.” said Manish Gupta.
