Unified and Energy-Efficient Data Centre Aims to Meet Future Demand

KUALA LUMPUR, MALAYSIA--(Marketwire) - Cisco (NASDAQ: CSCO) today announced its collaboration toward a green data center with Teliti Datacenters (Teliti), a locally owned systems integrator, at the inaugural Cisco Summit Malaysia 2010. Under this collaboration, Cisco will share data center best practices and work with Teliti as it develops a business model for data center management and a governance structure that enables Teliti to achieve world-class standards for data centre infrastructure technology in Malaysia.

The state-of-the-art data center facility that Teliti intends to build with the help of Cisco will enable Teliti to host and provide a comprehensive portfolio of information technology (IT) solutions and services with lower energy consumption and less impact on the environment. The collaboration demonstrates a commitment by both companies to drive the adoption of green technology in line with Malaysia's ambition to reduce the country's carbon emissions by 40 percent by 2012. The 120,000-square-foot facility will be located at the Enstek high-technology business park, on the outskirts of Kuala Lumpur.

"The data centre is the heartbeat of any organization and also one of the biggest consumers of energy in the company. A 'green' data center will not only provide the organization with a strong strategic advantage with the new efficiencies it could generate but also help it align with the Malaysian government's environmental goals. Cisco's collaboration with Teliti is part of our contribution to this national agenda," said Anne Abraham, managing director of Cisco Malaysia, at the launch of Cisco Summit Malaysia 2010, where the collaboration was formalized.

Besides capitalizing on its strong systems integration expertise, Teliti stands to build on Cisco's next-generation data centre network architecture to create a unified, highly available and energy-efficient data centre. Some of the key services that will be provided include co-location, connectivity and hosted services, with a wide range of managed services such as security, disaster recovery and business continuity.

"Teliti's green data centre will be built in line with the Malaysian government's Green Building Index and allows us to rapidly capture the growing opportunities in today's marketplace as businesses are increasingly deploying IT services to reduce capital expenditure, optimize operating expenses, and fulfill their environmental responsibility. Working with the global leader in networking technologies helps establish the competitiveness we need in delivering excellent services and support to all our customers, both local and international. We believe that our collaboration with Cisco will appeal to businesses, particularly the multinationals that need to comply with increasingly stringent environmental requirements. Our green data centre resonates well with the government's goal to position Malaysia as a regional IT hub and a top destination for foreign investment," said Tuan Haji Mohamed Nasir Abdul Majid, Managing Director, Teliti Computers.

Cisco Services helps businesses realize the full value of IT investments by aligning technology with their business strategy to capitalize on market transitions, support business transformation, and accelerate growth. Services also prepare the infrastructure so organizations can take advantage of the technical advances that enable competitive differentiation and advantage.

"Our role is to help Teliti quickly achieve its objectives while mitigating the risk of a brand-new infrastructure. This collaboration provides an opportunity for Cisco Services to expand our horizons in Malaysia, seeing that more and more companies are beginning to prioritize IT initiatives that allow their organizations to scale up to speed," said Steven Weeks, vice president, Cisco Services Asia Pacific.

This green data centre incorporates a reliable and fully redundant power supply to enable 99.999 percent uptime to all equipment, and smart cooling systems to suit the local climate. The building sports an environmentally friendly exterior, and utilizes solar energy and rainwater harvesting into its day-to-day operations.

The initial development phase of the first 45,000 square feet is targeted for completion by December 2011 and is expected to achieve an overall 30 to 40 percent reduction in carbon emissions. Teliti is also planning to extend its services reach into the regional market, targeting Singapore, Thailand and Hong Kong, when the green data centre is fully operational. Cisco will work with a rich ecosystem of partners to deliver these solutions and technologies to Teliti.

The collaboration towards a transformational data center with Teliti reaffirms Cisco's commitment to providing businesses in Malaysia with access to technologies and solutions that provide better integration between people, knowledge and ideas anytime and anywhere. These technologies include collaboration, borderless networks, video and virtualization tools.
