Article by Sharad Sanghi



It gives me great pleasure to share with you all that we’ve been conferred with the ‘Data Center Service Provider of the Year’ award at the 9th edition of Frost & Sullivan 2011 India IT & Telecom Excellence Awards ceremony that was held in Delhi (NCR). We were felicitated with this award in recognition of our growth and performance achieved in the fast growing and competitive datacenter market in India. This award also reaffirms Netmagic’s ability to plan, design, operate and maintain world-class datacenters.

It is a great honor to receive this prestigious award and we’re humbled to be recognized for our efforts to provide customers a complete range of datacenter solutions. I take this opportunity to especially thank all our customers and partners for their trust and support. One of the reasons for our success has been our constant endeavor to innovate and our story in the cloud computing space is testament. With datacenter adoption gaining momentum in India as a result of reducing bandwidth costs and the 3G roll-out, we are committed to retaining this leadership position by embracing the latest in technology and developing innovative products and business models that enable our customer’s businesses.

A rigorous process was followed in selecting a company for this award, which involved detailed research done by analysts on market performance of each company in the fray. An independent panel of judges finally deliberated on the findings of the analyst team before they decided on the deserving award recipient. The evaluation parameters for the award comprised revenue growth, innovation and breadth of portfolio offered, geographical reach, customer base and key wins in 2010 achieved by the provider.

On this occasion, I’d like to share with you a few thoughts about the Industry and about us, as communicated by Anand Rangachary, Managing Director, Frost & Sullivan, South Asia, Middle East and North Africa. He says “There has been a significant shift in the CIO mindset driven by factors such as cautious IT budgets, rising energy costs and lack of skilled man power. The Data Center services market is witnessing an increasing traction with respect to new technologies deployed, innovative products offered and business models incorporated. Netmagic has been a pioneer in the incorporation of green IT measures for data centers. They are the first in India to have LEED’s Gold certified Data Center facility in Chennai and also one of the first providers of Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) in India. Their innovative solutions for the BFSI industry include a co-located data center at the BSE, in strategic partnership with Thomson Reuters. Market share growth, customer satisfaction and product innovation have been the key criteria for bestowing Netmagic with the ’2011 Frost & Sullivan Datacenter Service Provider of the Year’ award.”

I take this opportunity to congratulate the brilliant and sustained efforts of the Netmagic team in giving our customers the best services, and once again thank our customers and partners who are supporting us through this incredible journey!
