Becomes one of the few data centers in India that are certified to serve as a point of network interconnection.
India, Mumbai, 12 October 2020: Yotta Infrastructure – a Hiranandani Group company, received the OIX-2 certification – the best-in-class and the first global certification for data centers that prefer to serve as a point of network interconnection. Yotta’s first and Asia’s largest Uptime Institute Tier IV certified data center is now one of the few facilities in India to have met the criteria defined by global industry veterans. This validates that Yotta’s data center infrastructure has proven to be of the standard for massive-scale interconnection supporting facility performance, resiliency and reliability needed to provide to interconnect networks.
Open-IX is a self-regulated community that came into being to regulate the development of critical Data Center and Internet Exchange Providers (IXP), and set the standards in a structure that supports all the data center players and their customers. It enables an ecosystem that is mutually beneficial to each of these service providers and operators, as well as their customers. The approved facility 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.
On receiving this certification, Sunil Gupta, Managing Partner and CEO at Yotta Infrastructure said, “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 fiber directly into our data center. Built on Tier IV standards, Yotta NM1 offers enhanced connectivity and increased efficiency to our customers. Our teams have been working relentlessly to provide best-in-class services to our customers who have shown immense trust in us. We are happy to be OIX-2 certified and will continue to offer high-quality and cost-effective IT network services to our customers.”
“We are extremely excited to add Yotta to our list of certified data centers,” said Eli D. Scher, Chairman of Open-IX. “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.”
The benefits of this certification are also passed on to the customers by way of reduced costs, increased data protection and security, scalable and reliable connectivity with increased redundancy and resiliency. Besides, 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 their data center location. This creates one-stop shop for the customers.
Iterating his views on this certification, Manish Israni, EVP & CIO, Yotta Infrastructure, added, “We have built redundancy across multiple carriers to ensure higher uptime for our customers. And since Yotta is connected and peered with almost all carriers and ISPs, we can extend additional value propositions like redundancy, flexibility, diversity, aggregation, and better routing to our customers. OIX-2 is a community-based certification; and by getting certified, we are making the potential customers aware about the importance of interconnection, open standards, and non-discriminatory access.”
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, PCI-DSS with many more in the pipeline. With all these certifications, Yotta is ensuring compliance requirement for its customers and helping them focus on their core business function.
