The first building in the Data Center Park, for which the construction started in January 2021, will go live for customer operations by July 2022. Once completed, it will have a capacity of 30 MW IT Load.
“Uttar Pradesh today is at the forefront of all-round development. Data Centers are the hub of the digital revolution. The government of Uttar Pradesh has taken path-breaking steps, including a forward-looking Data Center policy helping and incentivising the development of high-quality large-scale data centers in Uttar Pradesh,” said Yogi Adityanath Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh.
The Uttar Pradesh government, in October 2020, gave approvals to the company to set up a 20-acre hyperscale data center park in Greater Noida. This will be the first data center park in the region, which will consist of 6 interconnected data center buildings offering 30,000 racks capacity, powered by more than 250 MW of power.
The estimated cost to set up the park is approximately Rs 7,000 crore (USD 950 million). The project will also generate direct and indirect employment in Uttar Pradesh as the company expands its team to operate and build the data centers.
“The Digital India initiative has opened up new avenues for businesses, and India has been on the upward trajectory with respect to digital transformation way before the pandemic hit us. The last couple of years have only reinstated the need to grow digital infrastructure in our country. Our data center park in Greater Noida will go a long way to augment the digital infrastructure not only in Uttar Pradesh but also in the entire north region of country as Yotta continues to strive to bridge the demand-supply gap in the Indian data center industry,” said Darshan Hiranandani, Group CEO – Hiranandani Group.
Riding on the digital revolution and a huge supply-demand gap in the country for high quality scalable data centers, and benefitting from its all-round capabilities across the value chain of data center from Build to Operate, Yotta is feverishly developing data center parks across the country.
It has also signed MoUs with the governments of Tamil Nadu and West Bengal to set up data centers in Chennai and Kolkata respectively. The company recently announced that its first data center in Navi Mumbai – Yotta NM1, is India’s first and the only Tier IV Constructed Facility certified by Uptime Institute (USA).
“Foreseeing increased demand from the region due to digital acceleration, we’ve decided to commence construction of two new data center buildings of 30MW IT load each from January 2022, much ahead of our earlier schedule. The data center park shall be the largest one in the region, powered by redundant 220 KV express feeders and an on-site substation, with an option of 100% green energy to customers,” said Sunil Gupta, Co-founder and CEO of Yotta Infrastructure.
