A modern Data Centre at BHEL’s Electronics Division (EDN), Bengaluru was inaugurated by Union Minister of Heavy Industries, Dr. Mahendra Nath Pandey.
Established to commemorate India’s celebration of ‘Azadi ka Amrit Mahotsav’ and as a step in BHEL’s digital transformation journey, the Data Centre at EDN encompasses the data centres of all the three Bengaluru-based units of BHEL, namely Solar Business Division (SBD), Industrial Systems Group (ISG), as well as Electronics Division (EDN).
The facilities at these three units have been brought together and co-located in one place leading to optimisation of IT infrastructure, better data security and reduction in operating cost. The connectivity to SBD and ISG, located about 12 km from EDN, is provided through high-speed multi-protocol label switching (MPLS) for increasing the speed and also to control the flow of network traffic.
Addressing the employees, Dr. Mahendra Nath Pandey said, “The newly inaugurated data centre will provide advanced solutions in today’s digital ecosystem.”
He also hailed the Remote Monitoring and Diagnostic System (RMDS) developed by BHEL, as a step towards realising the Prime Minister’s vision of providing quality power to all citizens.”
Speaking about the various contributions of BHEL, Dr. Pandey said that the company is playing an integral role in the flagship programmes of the Government of India like the Make in India and Aatmanirbhar Bharat initiatives.
