Managed Cloud service provider Netmagic, the Indian arm of Japanese telecom major NTT Communications, on Tuesday announced that it has deployed NetApps' all-flash, scale-out storage system at five of its data centres in India.

NetApp's 'SolidFire' enables businesses' IT infrastructure quickly and seamlessly at scale, while enhancing developer productivity and improving time-to-market of new applications through simplified storage operations at the same time.

"Our SolidFire storage platform simplifies end-user cloud experiences, while reducing internal complexity with its unique QoS and scale-out architecture which helps realise business results faster," added Anil Valluri, President, NetApp India & SAARC.

NTT Communications recently announced plans to invest more than $160 million for its data centre expansion in India.

To become operational by April 2018, two new data centres are located in Mumbai and Bengaluru, the construction of which was initiated by Netmagic.

"India has been a key strategic market for us with the accelerating shift of IT services from traditional enterprise data centres into the Cloud-based services," said Tetsuya Shoji, President and CEO, NTT Communications, in July.

"With further expansion of data centre footprint and addition of international data network services to our service portfolio, we aim to meet the growing market needs for mobility, e-Commerce, Internet of Things (IoT), Cloud and Big Data," Shoji added.

The data centres in Mumbai and Bengaluru will add nearly 500,000 square feet of gross floor space, accommodating 2,750 racks per 22MW power and 1,500 racks per 15MW power respectively.
