Yotta Infrastructure announced that it will commence construction of two more data centres in their Greater Noida Data Center Park in January 2022. The two buildings will have a capacity of 30 MW IT load each and will be ready to go live in January 2024.

The first building in the Data Center Park, for which the construction started in last January, will go live for customer operations by July 2022, in less than 18 months. Once completed, it will have a capacity of 30 MW IT Load, the company said.

The Uttar Pradesh government, in October 2020, approved to set up a 20-acre hyperscale data center park in Greater Noida. This will be the first data centre 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 INR 7,000 crore (~USD 950 million).

“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… With the presence of multiple telco operators, redundant fiber paths and various public and private Internet exchanges and availability of Build-to-Suit, Bulk and Retail Colocation and various Cloud and Managed Services, this highly interconnected data center park is attracting customers from across the world and industry verticals,” Sunil Gupta, Co-founder and CEO of Yotta Infrastructure said in a statement.

The company  had also signed MoUs with the governments of Tamil Nadu and West Bengal to set up data centres 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).
