Yotta NM1 has become one of few data centers in India to serve as a point of network interconnection with globally recognised OIX-2 certification.
Yotta Infrastructure’s first data center and Asia’s largest Uptime Institute Tier IV certified data center has successfully met the standards for massive-scale interconnection supporting facility performance, resiliency and reliability needed to provide interconnect networks.
“The OIX-2 certification is a stamp of credibility on our network quality. Yotta NM1 is a carrier-neutral data center and leading telecom providers have brought their fibre directly into our data center,” said Sunil Gupta, Managing Partner and CEO at Yotta Infrastructure.
Open-IX is a self-regulated community that came into being to regulate the development of critical data center and Internet Exchange Providers (IXP). They set the standards in a structure that supports all the data center players and their customers.
“We are extremely excited to add Yotta to our list of certified data centers,” said Eli D. Scher, the Chairman of Open-IX.
Open-IX enables an ecosystem that is mutually beneficial to each of these service providers and operators, as well as their customers.
Yotta NM1 will be able to bring any new network provider on a non-discriminatory basis to provide non-discriminatory access to any Open-IX approved IXP subject to available space, power, and cooling.
“The OIX-2 certification represents quality in engineering and fair access to interconnection services. We believe these characteristics resonate with potential customers and partners alike, and we welcome Yotta to the Open-IX community,” added Mr. Scher.
The benefits of this certification is said to be passed on to customers by way of reduced costs, increased data protection and security, scalable and reliable connectivity with increased redundancy and resiliency.
“OIX-2 is a community-based certification. By getting certified, we are making the potential customers aware about the importance of interconnection, open standards, and non-discriminatory access,” commented Manish Israni, the EVP and CIO of Yotta Infrastructure.
Yotta NM1 is connected and peered with almost all carriers and ISPs in India. Open-IX allows the end customers to have a greater selection of peers, carriers, and cloud service providers that previously might not have been available in a data center location, creating a one-stop shop for the customers.
“We have built redundancy across multiple carriers to ensure higher uptime for our customers. We can extend additional value propositions like redundancy, flexibility, diversity, aggregation, and better routing to our customers,” added Mr. Israni.
Yotta’s first data center, Yotta NM1, is slated to be one of the largest data centers in India. The facility covers 800,000 square feet, filled with 7,200 racks and 50MW of power.
Besides OIX-2 certification, Yotta has also received various other certifications like the ISO 9001:2015, ISMS Cloud Security – ISO/IEC 27017:2015, ISO/IEC 20000-1:2018, ISO/IEC 27001:2013, ISO/IEC 27018: 2019, and PCI-DSS, with many more in the pipeline.
Yotta Infrastructure, a Hiranandani Group company, is set to invest US$469m or ₹3,500 crore on three data centers in Mumbai, Delhi and Chennai over the next two years.
