Operator Ooredoo Maldives has announced the launch of the country’s first ever tier-III-ready data centre, providing connectivity, storage, security and support systems for IT-based services and operations for a wide range of customers.
Located in the emerging smart city of Hulhumalé, a reclaimed island in the south of North Malé Atoll, Ooredoo Maldives Data Centre (OMDC) is described as a world-class data centre which will bolster a transition to new technologies supporting Maldivian and regional businesses from the government, corporate and hospitality sectors.
OMDC is a tier-III certification-ready data centre, offering a wide portfolio of services, large amounts of storage space, 24/7 physical and network security, disaster management capabilities, superior power backup, and high-end heating, ventilation and air conditioning systems.
The facility also provides a rack space of medium and high density, with a capability of supporting offshore hosting requests, which means businesses outside the country can host their servers in the Maldives.
The infrastructure of this new data centre is designed to provide customers the safest possible environment, including flood resistance of up to seven metres along with state-of-the-art fire detection systems. The facility is housed with critical electrical diesel power generators which can sustain an uninterrupted backup power that can seamlessly operate for 14 days without human intervention.
The centre features modern environmental monitoring and control systems, a water leakage detection system and a round-the-clock digital and physical monitoring system.
OMDC also offers a demo room where visitors can hear about the wide range of products designed by the company for enterprise customers.
