TNT to Implement Green Technologies at Data Center

by Manu Sharma    Apr 09, 2009

TNT, the global express delivery services company as part of the upgradation program will be deploying HP green technologies at its data centers in Bangalore.

HP TNT s global IT vendor, will help the company address green IT needs through energy-efficient solutions for the data center and beyond.

Talking to CXOtoday, Ivan Baskar, director ICS & special projects said, After the  installation of four servers and looking at issues like power consumptions and efficiencies, we are now in talks with HP for implementing green technologies for our data center during second upgradation in 2010.

In India, TNT s IT data center is located at IBM data centre at ITPL and was initially set up in 2005 and further upgraded in 2007. It presently has eight racks and is of approximately 200 sqft in size.

As most, companies are talking about saving money through more energy-efficient solutions for their data center and broader workplace, we are looking at various options for implementing such technologies, he said.

TNT had earlier invested in setting up four different servers that include Citrix, Unix, Lotus Notes and Windows.

  Our data centers were initially located in our own corporate office premises, but as the office expanded and with power and security issues cropping up, we were forced to go for remotely managed data centers run by IBM, said Baskar.

 HP will help TNT meet their technology challenges while at the same time help them to reduce their environmental impact.
