The TDC is a 900,000 sq ft structure (third largest in the world) built on a sprawling 4 acre land near Whitefield, situated about 20 km from the city center.
This state-of-the-art data center is planned to be ISO 20000-1 & 27001 certified and will be designed as per Seismic Zone 4 specifications with raised floors, precision air-conditioning with accurate temperature and humidity control systems with separate cooling zones. The completed facility will aim to offer the widest range of physical security features, including state-of-the-art smoke detection and fire suppression systems, motion sensors, and 24x7 secured access with biometric & proximity card readers, as well as video camera surveillance and security breach alarms.
The building is a 7 level structure including 2 base floors that house the utilities and office area. The ground floor houses a 66KVA substation in the designated space on the front of the building. A dual feed of 11KVA each power the electrical requirement of the data center facility on redundant paths. The ground floor also houses the fuel tank and 96MW DG sets (4MW x 24) that can power the entire facility in case utility power service is disrupted. Additionally, the electrical panels are also located at this level.
The first floor houses the seating facility for over 1500 which includes -TDC office space, the Meet Me Rooms for telcos, the NOC and the SOC facilities. The second floor leads to an Atrium and Executive briefing center where kiosks and video wall allow customers to engage in an interactive session to understand in detail about our services. At the second level are located 4 towers of 5 floors (plates) each hosting data center of 20,000 sq ft. The service area is designed to have a floor load bearing capacity of 1250 kg per sq meter. The walls of the data center facility are constructed using special blocks of concrete which provide adequate reinforcement to the structure and better thermal insulation than traditional brick walls.
Chiller units are located at the roof of each of the four towers and provide the necessary cooling to all the plates. Power, cooling and network facilities are all provided on redundant paths to each of the towers.
Each plate has three server halls totaling a raised floor area of about 13,000 sq ft that can host 550 racks approximately. N+N UPS with Static Transfer Switch are provisioned for each plate depending upon the load density requirement for each plate. Additionally, each server hall has Precision Air Handling Units (PAHU) in separate enclosures located at the service corridor (tech alley). The average power rating per rack is 9kw, the server halls are maintained at a temperature of about 220C + 10C and Relative Humidity of 50% +5%. The cooling system will have airside economizers
