“What is the recipe for successful achievement? To my mind there are just four essential ingredients: Choose a career you love . . . Give it the best there is in you . . . Seize your opportunities and work as a team.. At ESDS we have all the four…”
After its inception in 2003 in a rented bungalow with 4 employees, ESDS made rapid strides as an established group of web hosting companies, its success skyrocketed and today we are family of more than 150+ employees. ESDS has indigenously developed the concept of a high specification; carrier-neutral and fully managed datacenter in the state of Maharashtra, and has successfully turned this vision into reality. We started off with a handful of customers and six years down the line we have more than 30000+ customers worldwide, a significant amount of them being corporate entities who have their business dependent on their Internet presence. ESDS has taken its level of excellence and achievement one step further – ESDS has won the IT Special Award from the Government of Maharashtra in 2009.What makes it remarkable is the fact that this growth, recognition and fame has been achieved within 06 years of its establishment. ESDS envisions the dream of being a world class organisation; an organisation that would provide incomparable service, mould and guide enlightened minds. We would like to extend our gratitude and thanks to all the role players that have made it possible for the dream to become a reality.
ESDS, a group of leading web hosting companies based in UK, USA & India, has announced the launch of its ultra modern, carrier neutral, fully managed Datacenter facility in Nashik on the 3rd of February 2010. The complete infrastructure including the state-of-the-art Tier III Datacenter facility is fully owned and operated by ESDS. Since its inception in the year 2005 with just 4 employees, the company has made rapid strides as an established group of web hosting companies and operates in 3 different continents today with the total staff strength of 160.
The Datacenter is located in Nashik in the state of Maharashtra, very near to the financial capital of the country – Mumbai. Needless to say, the facility has all the latest hi-tech equipments and technology including the state-of-the-art infrastructure, advanced power efficient cooling systems, redundancy and so forth. The Datacenter is also equipped with multiple-layer network security beefed by Cisco’s Anomaly Detector and Anomaly guard against DDoS attacks along with data security managed by firewalls, anti malicious software applications and secure virtual private networks (VPN).
The 10,000-square-feet Datacenter will offer a range of services including Managed Dedicated Servers, Co-location Services, System Backups, Virtualization, Cloud Computing along with Custom Solutions such as High Speed Grid Network, POP on Lease, Hosted Banking Solutions, Managed DNS Services and ESDS-Cage. With the launch of this new facility, the company aims to capture the emerging Indian market and provide World class web hosting facilities to the Indian congregate at affordable prices.
The Datacenter structure has been constructed bearing in mind not only the aesthetics of the building but also the optimum usage of the available resources. The building can be considered as a classic example of smart modern engineering, rendering contemporary methods and means to put together a structure that is not only visually enticing but also a contributor in maintaining the eco-system. From carefully selected building materials to unique power saving systems, ESDS has ensured that it’s operations and premises act as a contributing factor in maintaining the environmental equilibrium.
An environment friendly initiative taken up by ESDS is Project Green Connect, a tree plantation drive in which over 300 trees have been planted in the premises besides the 30+ fully grown trees which have been retained. A (STP) Sewage Treatment Plant has been set up within the premises ensuring that the sewage water is recycled and used for watering those trees and plants. The building also has a Rainwater Harvesting architecture contributing towards ground water table recharging.
Highlighting the unique features, while speaking to our correspondent, the company’s CEO Mr. Piyush Somani stated; “The austerity of our commitment towards eco-conservation can be observed in our infrastructure itself. The Datacenter dual cavity walls have been built using Cellular Light Weight Concrete (CLC) Blocks commonly known as Fly-Ash Bricks. Using CLC Blocks provides better strength to weight ratio as they are 1/3 rd of the weight of the commonly used bricks and have a higher Fire Rating. It also provides better acoustic and thermal insulation creating a temperature difference of up to 4-5 Degree Celsius in comparison to Red Bricks. Thus the air conditioning requirement is considerably reduced helping us to save on power consumption. Vermiculite Plaster, power efficient ventilation system for workstations, power efficient new generation servers and power efficient chillers are some of the other unique features which differentiate ESDS Datacenter from all the other Datacenters across the world”.
“Owning and operating the facility gives us the means to offer industry leading availability while shielding our customers from future uncertainties. The facility is designed to provide the highest quality of services at affordable prices. The highly secure physical infrastructure bounded with best-in-class connectivity and technology, backed by our reliable infrastructure ensures the most comprehensive and engaging online experience”
The Company’s management is very confident on their latest endeavour in the Indian market and the Company’s CEO stated “The ESDS Datacenter will set an example ahead of all forthcoming projects across the globe”.
