India’s largest data centre building inaugurated

Indian managed data centre service provider Yotta Infrastructure has announced the inauguration of what is described as India’s largest data centre building.

The building is, says Yotta, the largest Tier IV Data Centre certified by the Uptime Institute in Asia and the second largest in the world.

About 40 km from Mumbai, the Yotta NM1 Data Centre, as the building is known, is located in the 600-acre Hiranandani Fortune City in Panvel. 

At 820,000 sq. ft, 7,200 racks, 50 MW of power and four redundant self-owned fibre paths connecting the data centre to national highways, the Yotta NM1 offers what is described as 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 building, supported by a highly redundant on-site power infrastructure, will soon be powered by its own captive solar power plant and an on-site captive gas-based co-gen power plant. This means, Yotta says, that is will be delivering to its hosted customers a long-term reliable, green and cost-effective source of power.

Yotta NM1 was inaugurated in a virtual event in the presence of a number of regional and national government representatives.

Yotta NM1 is the first of five data centre buildings planned for this Integrated Yotta data centre park, which, once fully built, will have an overall capacity of 30,000 racks and 250 MW power.

Yotta is also developing similar-sized data centre parks at Chennai and New Delhi. Each of these parks will feature more than 20,000 racks, 200 MW-plus power and multiple self-owned fibre paths connecting the park to the main highways.
