First-Ever Tier-III Data Center in the City of Vijayawada, Built by Prasa

“Prasa has deployed a Tier- III data center at Software Technology Parks of India (STPI) in Vijayawada. The energy-efficient data center has a smart lighting system and is the first data center in the city of Vijayawada.”

Highlights of the project

  • The data center is compliant with 5 stars GRIHA rating (Green Rating for Integrated Habitat Assessment).
  • The data center uses a smart lighting system. It is a futuristic step which will help in achieving higher energy efficiency and hence reduce the power bills.

About the Client

Located in Vijayawada, Software Technology Parks of India (STPI) is a society established by the Indian Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology to encourage, promote, and boost the export of software from India. STPI provides consulting, training, and implementation services with the help of internal engineering resources.

Challenges

  • STPI quickly needed a highly efficient data center to support all its technical requirements. A conventional data center was required to be built from scratch that could contain tens of racks in an area of 850 square feet without compromising on performance.
  • STPI runs on solar power and the IT department needed an innovative solution such that the data center is energy efficient without affecting the efficiency and effectiveness of the complete data center in general.
  • The deployed data center would need to be monitored and managed with a system that will ensure the working of the data center in tandem with STPI’s requirements.

The Prasa Solution

  • Prasa has completed the entire data center infrastructure mission-critical infrastructure in a very short span of time. The Data Center contains 20 racks in total, 6 of 16kW, 10 of 8kW, and 4 of 5kW capacity to meet all the needs of STPI. All equipment in the data center is based on N+1 redundancy.
  • To supply uninterrupted power to the data center a dedicated 400 kW diesel-run generator and a modular UPS of 160 kVA are installed to secure the power requirements of the data center. The data center is equipped with Smart Lighting Management System, which will switch on/off or dim the lights of the building by sensing the daylight or the occupancy in the room. The data center is built in compliance with the 5-star GRIHA (Green Rating for Integrated Habitat Assessment) rating.
  • The data center is monitored by BMS (Business Management System) technology system.

Benefits

  • The data center at STPI is a very high-efficiency data center implemented successfully in a very reasonable budget within a very short time span of 2.5 months.
  • The dedicated generator ensures the safety of the equipment 24*7 in a facility reliant on solar power.
  • The Smart Lighting Management System will save around 30% of lighting costs.
  • The Modular UPS provides flexibility to the data center and scope for improvement without serious downtime in the future.
  • Being Compliant with the GRIHA rating the data center at STPI is Green Data Center and does not affect the carbon footprint of the organization.
