CtrlS Nodia: Ctrl's earthquake and pollution-free data center

Dec 03, 2021 | Posted by MadalineDunn

Ctrl's Noida data center is reportedly the most sustainable data center (DC) in northern India, with LEED v4.1 O+M Platinum certification and 100 % air pollution-free. On top of this, the facility is also designed to withstand earthquakes of 8.5 on the Richter scale. 

Sustainability was a key priority in the construction of the facility, too, with low-VOC paints and used natural fiber floor materials, including bamboo and cork. Moreover, these materials were certified by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) to ensure that they were sustainably sourced, too.

More broadly, across the company's portfolio, including its Mumbai, Hyderabad, Noida, and Bengaluru data center facilities, water is conserved, harvested and recycled through rain-water harvesting techniques. In total, 79% of water at these facilities is treated in this way.

Speaking about the impact the company has had environmentally to Express Computer, Gopalakrishnan P, Managing Director, GBCI, South East Asia & Middle East Markets, commented: "Sustainability is embedded in the DNA of CtrlS, as the company is focused on best practices in energy management, good indoor air quality management, high performance across rainwater management, heat island reduction, water conservation and efficiency management, atmosphere and light pollution management, grid harmonization, waste management, purchase optimization, green cleaning, and other innovations."

Adding: "All CtrlS Rated-4 Hyperscale datacenters are certified as LEED v4 O+M Platinum by Green Business Certification Inc. (GBCI), setting a benchmark for the datacenter industry both in India and around the world."
