MUMBAI and BANGALORE, India, May 22, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Netmagic Solutions, India's only data center infrastructure lifecycle management (DILM) company and subsidiary of NTT Communications (NTT Com) on May 22 announced that it is building a 100,000-square-foot of net floor space data center that will supply Bangalore's constrained market for high quality data center space. The new data center in Electronic City, "India Bangalore 2 Data Center" will be operational by December 2013. The company anticipates the capacity to be utilized by large IT/ITES companies looking for scalable and high quality data center space for their R&D centers as well as their end customers' space requirements.
The data center will add to the growing number of NTT Com's world class data centers globally. NTT Com which is a member of NTT group, which is ranked No.1 in telecom industry in the Fortune Global 500, runs more than 140 data centers globally under its newly launched Nexcenter (TM) brand and holds a majority stake in Netmagic Solutions. This is the first data center in India to have benefitted from the collaborative engineering and operational expertise of NTT Com and Netmagic.
Renowned for its 24x7 customer service and IT competency, the award winning data center service provider, Netmagic has 7 data centers in India including 4 in Mumbai and one each in Bangalore, Noida (Delhi-NCR) and Chennai.

The data center will deliver the entire range of services of Netmagic including managed co-location, dedicated hosting, IT infrastructure monitoring and management, security and cloud computing services. The data center will offer co-location space with high power / cooling densities, and can offer not only individual racks, but also highly secure cages and enclosed server rooms to meet the requirements of large global enterprises. As with all of the company's data centers, connectivity from multiple telecom providers will be available from physically redundant paths allowing customers to architect on any network of their choice. The data center is designed with high levels of redundancies and a stringent focus on security, both physical and logical. Enterprises can expect further attention to detail with amenities such as highly secure material handling system based on bar coding and multiple checkpoints, adequate customer office space, dedicated storage space, and heavy equipment handling systems.
In addition to serving the needs of businesses located in and around Bangalore, the data center shall also act as a perfect place for large organizations across India and other geographies of the world to establish their disaster recovery and business continuity sites.
Enterprises planning to migrate to any of Netmagic's data centers can avail of their data center migration management expertise that has been honed over several migration projects planned and managed for enterprises hosted in their data centers.
The company has already begun accepting orders for its managed hosting and co-location services. Netmagic is also offering complimentary migration service to the first three customers opting to move their current data center to Netmagic's new data center in Electronic City.

Says Sharad Sanghi, CEO, Netmagic Solutions, "In India, customers want to have their data centers located as close as possible to their business operations. Our strategy is to accommodate this demand and ensure that our data centers are large enough to meet their needs as well as be efficient enough to be viable. While customers may come to us because of our location, they stay with us because of our service and ability to help their infrastructure evolve as their business does.
"A common misconception is that any building can be converted to offer data center services. A data center is engineered from the ground up to ensure the highest levels of security, fully redundant systems with secondary and even tertiary backup systems, massive cooling systems and onsite electrical generation. Hence, we encourage customers to understand these finer elements of engineering that go behind building a data center and understand that even in a co-location arrangement, how important it is to have an IT Infrastructure partner who can understand the criticality of your data and has the experience and competence to support customers accordingly 24x7."
