Speaking exclusively to CRN India, Pranav Shah, Director, Mahavir Sys Power, sheds lights on the demand in data centre domain. He says, “Due to the increasing importance and penetration of digitisation in the Indian economy, there will be a huge demand for building highly efficient and reliable data centres of various sizes and uptime availability across all industry verticals.”

The company provides various services and solutions to customers in the data centre space. Mahavir Sys Power offers a single point of contact and complete ownership approach to its customers in which it designs, builds and operates modern data centres using highly efficient UPS systems with batteries (traditional and modular design), precision cooling (floor based cooling and high density in-row cooling), racks, intelligent rack PDUs, modular and scalable power distribution, IBMS, remote monitoring and integrated management services.

Elaborating on market trends and the company’s competencies and capabilities to cater to customer needs, Shah says, “IT, telecom, banking and insurance verticals are aggressive users of data centres. Whereas, government, manufacturing, healthcare and retail are early adopters of software defined data centres (SDDC). We have developed capabilities for managing all aspects of the data centre through holistic data centre infrastructure management which helps in reducing CapEx and OpEx by leveraging and optimising the existing infrastructure, increasing energy efficiency through monitoring and analysis of carbon footprint, PUE and energy usage.”

Mahavir Sys Power forms its strategies based on the current challenges faced by the customer in planning of data centre which are rapidly changing in terms of factors such as technology, dynamic power variations, high density server power and heat, server consolidation and virtualisation, uncertainty on future plan for capacity and density, increasing availability expectations, energy and service cost control pressure, etc.
