IBM will provide design consultancy services covering technologies spanning data centre operation, including power, cooling, rack layout, chillers, uninterruptible power supplies (UPS) and diesel generator sets.
SCHNABEL is offering peer consultancy reviews of the build, which is planned to be India's largest yet.
According to Tulip, the data centre would be used for collocation, managed hosting services, as also data storage and managed services that would include storage and security.
The data centre would cover 9,00,000 sq ft of land acquired earlier this year at SADA IT Parks. The cost of the build is expected to be around Rs900 crore over three years.
