- Brand new 100,000 sq. ft Data center Launched in Electronic City to Serve
Bangalore's Supply-Constrained Market -

Netmagic, an NTT Communications Company and India's only Data center
Infrastructure Lifecycle Management (DILM) service provider, announced on
March 27 the launch of its new data center in Electronic City, Bangalore. This
100,000 sq. ft. data center is the first time Netmagic and NTT Communications
have collaborated in building an entire facility from the ground up, and
thereby, draws from their combined engineering and operations expertise.

"This is a moment of pride for us, as this new data center will give Indian
and multi-national enterprises an opportunity to experience the
state-of-the-art data centers that NTT Communications operates across the
world. The added advantage of Netmagic's excellence in IT infrastructure
management and service delivery in the Indian enterprise space, gives this
data center the capability of becoming the new benchmark for data centers in
India, said Akira Arima, President and CEO, NTT Communications at the
unveiling of the data center. He added, "This facility is part of our Global
Cloud Vision to become a genuine global ICT partner for enterprises, providing
seamless ICT solutions such as networks, data centers and applications,
thereby capitalizing on the trend of enterprises' migrating their on-premise
systems to the cloud."

"Bangalore offers a strong growth potential and a supply-constrained market,
making this the most opportune moment to launch our new data center. Given the
large concentration of data intensive activities in Bangalore, our objective
is to accommodate enterprises' demand to house their critical IT
infrastructure closer to them, as well as ensure that our data centers have
the scalability to meet their growing needs, while offering highly efficient
services at the same time," said Sharad Sanghi, MD & CEO, Netmagic. "The
launch of this data center will enhance the confidence of our customers who
have been part of our 16-year-old journey and strengthen our position as one
of India's leading IT infrastructure management players", he added.

This new facility also marks the formal launch of the Nexcenter brand of data
center services in India. Under this brand, NTT Communications offers
leading-edge data center services across the globe. In India, these services
are offered through all 8 Netmagic data centers.

The data center will deliver Netmagic's entire suite of services including
managed co-location, dedicated hosting, cloud computing, IT infrastructure
monitoring and management and security. It will provide enterprises
customizable hosting space with high power and cooling densities and offer not
only individual racks, but also highly secure cages and enclosed server rooms
to meet the requirements of large global enterprises.

Consistent with Netmagic's data center standards, connectivity from multiple
telecom providers will be available from physically redundant paths allowing
customers to architect on any network of their choice. Extending the 'carrier
neutral' approach to building data centers, this facility 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 a highly secure material handling system, based on bar
coding and multiple checkpoints, adequate customer office space, dedicated
storage space and heavy equipment handling systems.

One of the other strengths of this facility is that its location is one of the
least prone to natural calamities and importantly, allows ready access to key
resources. This makes it ideal for large enterprises, across India and other
geographies to establish their disaster recovery and business continuity
