A Hiranandani Group-owned managed data centre service provider – Yotta Infrastructure – has launched its first data center facility in Mumbai. This center will have an initial capacity of 7200 racks and 820000 square feet area, while, its main objective would be to compliment the increasing demand from organizations to shift their operations onto the cloud; remotely located servers. The company has also stated that once it is completely built, it would support 30,000 racks all together.
“We are seeing demand for third-party data center facilities from across the board. Sectors such as media and entertainment, especially OTT players, pharma and healthcare, banking, education are going to significantly boost growth for cloud services,” said Sunil Gupta, CEO & Managing Partner at Yotta Infrastructure.
As the COVID-19 crisis has greatly stimulated the adoption of numerous technologies across enterprises. Also, we are witnessing a mass transition towards remote working as safety has become critical for everyone, today. According to a report by Canalys Global, cloud spends were at a record high with 34 percent jump in the first quarter of 2020.
Gupta also stated that the initiatives under the Digital India campaign have been rapidly accelerating Indian Data Centers’ growth bandwagon. To further spread its wings, the company is also expected to build four more such facilities across Mumbai, Chennai, and Delhi in the near future.
Meanwhile, one of the technology giants – Oracle – has also launched its second data center in the Indian sub-continent just a week ago, hence, further blanketing its presence across the sub-continent.
“A good data center infrastructure is critical for a robust digital economy and with this data center the Hiranandani Group has yet again delivered on their standards of creating a new benchmark in every industry that they operate in. For the success of Digital India, we must become a big global Data Refinery - data cleaning, data processing, data innovation and research - and all of this will need to be done keeping in mind data privacy laws. We shall never compromise on the data sovereignty of India. The data economy has a lot of potential and in all its promise – a good data center is the pillar it builds on,” highlighted Ravi Shankar Prasad, Minister for Communications, Electronics & Information Technology.
