EMC to power Tulip Telecom managed on-demand storage services

Telecom Lead India: EMC announced that Tulip Telecom
will provide managed on-demand storage services and Backup-as-a-Service (BaaS)
using EMC unified storage and backup and recovery technologies from the Tulip
data center in Bangalore.


EMC’s EMC VNX unified storage, EMC Avamar and EMC Data
Domain technologies for storage and backup and recovery will power Tulip’s
cloud-based storage and backup service offerings.


Tulip will offer enterprises managed services to address
the growing complexities related to storage and backup of data.


Enterprises in India are demanding the need for storage
and backup to be delivered through the cloud, to off-load their challenges of
managing them in-house. The scale of Tulip’s cloud-based, on-demand storage and
backup offerings is the only one of its kind in India, and will provide a
differentiated approach to storage, while delivering the choice, control,
flexibility, and cost efficiencies of cloud that are required by today’s IT
organization,” said Rajesh Janey, president, EMC India & SAARC.


Digital information in India will grow from 40,000
petabytes to 2.3 million petabytes, twice as fast as the worldwide rate over
the next decade (2010 to 2020), according to an IDC report in 2010.


In a separate research by IDC in 2011sponsored by EMC, 14
percent of the surveyed CIOs and key IT decision-makers at Indian organizations
were adopting cloud computing while 76 percent planned to use cloud computing
after six months.


Leveraging EMC technologies, Tulip will address the need
for cloud computing solutions for data storage and backup through hosted data


“Tulip has always believed in constant innovation
and partnering with the best, to offer to its customers, a world class services
experience. We selected EMC technologies because we aim to deliver the industry
leading solutions to our TDC customers. This choice is in line with Tulip’s
rapid evolution to a leading enterprise solutions provider and is expected to
enhance our services portfolio for Cloud offerings,” said Deepinder Bedi,
executive director, Tulip Telecom.


Managed services and cloud services are expected to gain
prominence in coming years and Cloud, primarily Infrastructure as a Service,
expected to grow at 30-40 percent is poised to becoming an integral part of
Data Center Business.
