Yotta Infrastructure said Essar Capital has undertaken a large-scale digital transformation initiative by consolidating its various on-premise datacenters into Yotta’s state-of-the-art Yotta NM1 datacenter at Panvel, Navi Mumbai. This move was prompted by growing demand of IT enabled services and new technologies by various Essar companies. Yotta got the contract after a thorough evaluation of all options available in the market a process that spanned across a year. Yotta NM1 (world’s 2nd largest Uptime Tier IV datacenter) now hosts 100+ applications of the Essar Global Fund, including collaboration tools, communication applications, SAP ERP, HR-related applications, and multiple engineering applications. The fault-tolerant nature of Yotta NM1 datacenter, ensures enhanced availability of these applications that are accessed by more than 7000+ users globally. N. Jayantha Prabhu, CIO, Essar Global and Business Head- India & SAARC, said the growing complexity of managing on-premise datacenters was creating a bottleneck and hence the company decided to co-locate to a multi-tenant datacenter service provider that could not only modernise our IT infrastructure but also assure us of uninterrupted services, 100% uptime, iron-clad security, scalability, and came with a customer-focused mind-set. After evaluating multiple options available in the market, it decided to migrate to Yotta NM1.
