Web HostingMUMBAI, India – Sify Technologies Limited (NASDAQ Global Markets: SIFY), a leader in consumer Internet and Enterprise services in India with global delivery capabilities, announced today the launch of its innovative SLA driven utility based On-Demand storage service to manage the complete lifecycle of enterprise information, from its inception to its final disposal. The fully managed, utility-based, On-Demand, scalable storage platform is powered by Hitachi Data Systems.

Pradip J Nath, Executive President, “Sify’s On-Demand-Storage service provides an excellent alternative to traditional on-site, dedicated storage systems which are mostly procured on ad-hoc basis. In today’s unpredictable business environment, IT departments most often either end up procuring higher capacity upfront to meet unexpected demands or fall short of capacity when the storage systems are critically needed.”

He added, “The launch of our On-Demand Storage platform is a significant step towards Sify’s journey towards building India’s best Cloud Infrastructure. Sify’s integrated data center, network, enterprise applications and professional support give us the edge in offering On-Demand ‘Cloud Infrastructure’ for companies seeking dynamic scalability, business agility, high-availability and enterprise security across compute, storage, security and network platforms while reducing costs.”

Vivekanand Venugopal, Vice President & GM, Hitachi Data Systems said, “Sify’s On-Demand Storage service powered by Hitachi Data Systems solutions is certain to benefit CIOs who are tasked with aligning IT objectives to business needs. The Hitachi cloud portfolio delivers the industry’s most integrated set of computing resources to create a single pool of virtualized block, file and content storage to support the diverse uses that are evolving in cloud computing today, and enables organizations to adopt cloud services at their own pace. This perfectly complements Sify’s usage-based business model. I am delighted with the partnership and convinced of its effectiveness to the industry.”

Sify’s On-Demand storage service reduces the complexities of deploying and managing multiple storage tiers, and lowers operational costs by automating management with flexible need-based pricing. This is combined with Hitachi Data Systems’ award-winning Hitachi Adaptable SAN Storage and Hitachi NAS to securely virtualize IT assets into consolidated, easy to manage pools of IT resources that can be provisioned as needed to support a wide range of applications and data types from a single, integrated infrastructure that is secure, reliable, scalable, cost-effective and agile in the face of changing demands. The service also offers the industry leading availability guarantee of 99.99% on the storage system to meet specific application and business uptime requirements.

This service incorporates world-class best practices, ILM strategies and tools to improve reliability, scalability, availability and reduction of the total cost of ownership. Companies can now rely on Sify for a unified storage pool (SAN / NAS) for their applications needs, ranging from the most demanding database environment to secondary backup needs.
