Yotta to Commence Construction of Two More Data Center Buildings in its Greater Noida DC Park

Due to heightened demand from the region, construction of the next two buildings in their Greater Noida Data Center Park will commence in January 2022

Mumbai, November 29, 2021: Yotta Infrastructure announced that it will commence construction of two more data centers 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 January 2021, will go live for customer operations by July 2022, in a record time of less than 18 months. Once completed, it will have a capacity of 30 MW IT Load.  

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 INR 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. 

Commenting on the development and his vision to transform Uttar Pradesh as a technology hub, the Honourable Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh, Shri Yogi Adityanath, said, “Uttar Pradesh today is at the forefront of all-round development. Data Centers are the hub of the digital revolution. They are the temples for digital democracy. 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. I congratulate the Hiranandani Group and Yotta for taking this initiative which shall enhance the quality of life for citizens and shall grow the digital economy of the country. I promise them all help and wish them success.”

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.”
