The park will consist of six interconnected data centre buildings offering 30,000 racks capacity and 200 MW of power. The company has received approvals from the government of Uttar Pradesh for the same and the construction for the first building will start in December.
“Yotta’s vision to support the Digital India initiative just received a big boost with the inclusion of our Northern India campus that will enable us to address India’s growing need for data sovereignty,” said Niranjan Hiranandani, Co-founder and Managing Director, Hiranandani Group.
This will be the third data centre park of the company after Navi Mumbai and Chennai. In July, Yotta had launched the world’s second largest tier IV datacenter in its Navi Mumbai Datacenter park- Yotta NM1. The company had also announced its agreement with the Tamilnadu Government for setting up a 13-acre campus in Chennai at an investment of Rs 4,000 crore.
According to Sunil Gupta, Co-founder and CEO of Yotta Infrastructure, the company’s NCR campus is expected to be operational with the first building before July 2022.
“The co-operation extended by the U.P. Government on all aspects such as land allotment, arrangement of electricity on open access basis etc. have been exceptional, and will go a long way to augment the datacenter infrastructure not only in this region but also in the country,” said Darshan Hiranandani, Group CEO – Hiranandani Group.
India’s co-location data centre stock is expected to more than double by 2023 to around 20 million sq ft from the current 9 million sq ft as the increasing digitization, and growing adoption of cloud and Internet of Things (IoT) devices is expected to push the demand for data centers significantly, Colliers Research said in a recent report.
Indian government’s regulations to localize the data and Reserve Bank of India’s (RBI) aim to increase digital transactions are driving the demand for data centre assets in the country.
