“Our uptime tier-4 certification demonstrates our relentless pursuit for quality and innovation and it is a testimony of unparalleled commitments to our customers who are looking for the best.”
Yotta Infrastructure, an arm of the Hiranandani Group has announced that they will spend ₹3,500 crore on three data centres in Mumbai, Delhi and Chennai in the next two years. Recently, the company has signed an MoU with the Government of Tamil Nadu to set up a Data Center Park in Chennai. The Hiranandani Group and its group companies, along with Yotta, will invest INR 3000-4000 crores in this proposed project over eight to ten years.
This will also help to generate approximately 2000-2500 direct and indirect jobs in the State of Tamil Nadu. Welcoming this move, the Government of Tamil Nadu will provide facilitation and support in the form of necessary infrastructural support, regulatory approvals, permissions and/or registration facilitation subject to applicable laws. In a chat with VARINDIA, Sunil Gupta, Managing Partner & CEO – Yotta Infrastructure has shared insights on Yotta, its newly launched data center parks in Navi Mumbai, Chennai and New Delhi.
Sunil claims Yotta is all about scalability, agility, quality, innovation and economy of scale. He gives a description of the recently inaugurated data center building, Yotta NM1. It is the largest Tier IV Data Center certified by Uptime Institute in Asia and second largest in the world.
Describing the Data Center park, Sunil Gupta says, “With proximity to Mumbai and Pune, Yotta NM1 Data Center is located in the 600-acre Hiranandani Fortune City in Panvel. Yotta NM1 is first of the five data center buildings coming up at this Integrated Yotta Data Center Park, which, once fully built, will have an overall capacity of 30,000 racks and 250 MW power.
At 820,000 sq. ft, 7,200 racks, 50 MW of power and 4 redundant self-owned fiber paths connecting the DC to national highways, the first DC Yotta NM1 itself offers a highly scalable data centre infrastructure, capable of hosting global cloud, content and OTT operators besides the mission-critical applications of enterprises and governments. The ultramodern building, supported by a highly redundant on-site power infrastructure shall soon be powered by its own captive solar power plant and an on-site captive gas-based co-gen power plant thus delivering to its hosted customers long term reliable, green and cost-effective source of power.”
He also says, “The building is supported by redundant self-owned on-site power distribution infrastructure which will be augmenting in future by captive solar power plant and also on-site captive gas-based cogen power plant. This means we are delivering to our hosted customers a long term reliable green and very cost effective source of power.”
For Yotta quality comes on supreme. He says, “Our uptime tier-4 certification demonstrates our relentless pursuit for quality and innovation and it is a testimony of unparalleled commitments to our customers who are looking for the best.”
Recently announced another Data Center Park will be built on a 13-acre campus at Hiranandani Parks on the Singaperumal - Oragadam highway. It will host a total of four Data Center buildings with a capacity of 20000 racks, backup generator sets and featuring a total power load of approximately 150-240 MW. Like its Navi Mumbai facility, this data center park will also be carrier-neutral with the presence of major telcos and own fibre network. The campus will also house a 220/110 KV electrical substation and a CNG power plant.
Construction work at Chennai would have begun in July, but has been delayed by three months due to the Covid-19 pandemic. The company has submitted the proposals with the local government and got necessary permissions. They are going to start work in October 1. It will be ready by October 2021. In Delhi, the firm is in the process of acquiring 20-acres for the datacentre. They expect work to begin there in October and it should go live by January 2022.
Sunil also feels that with their first Uptime Institute certified Tier IV data center building – Yotta NM1 – they have proved that world-class infrastructure facility at an affordable cost can be a reality.
While Yotta NM1 will serve the western region, our Chennai data center park will offer the same Tier IV infrastructure facilities to the southern region, thus filling in the void of quality colocation services in the region. Yotta being a complete managed hybrid IT infrastructure provider, will also provide customers various customized options to suit their requirements with enterprise managed services.
