Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister has informed that the state has fulfilled its goal of establishing 250 MW of storage capacity with an investment of Rs 20,000 crore within a year of initiating its data center program while officially opening north India’s first hyperscale data center, “Yotta D1.”

 

What is the ‘Yotta D1′?

  • Yotta D1, the largest data centre in the nation and the first in Uttar Pradesh, was constructed at a cost of Rs 5,000 crore.
  • It is situated in Greater Noida, Uttar Pradesh, on a 3 lakh square foot plot of land in the future Data Center Park.
  • The data centre will improve the nation’s data storage capacity, which up until now only stood at 2% even though Indians consume 20% of the world’s data. It is expected to greatly boost the Gross State Product (GSDP), open up new investment prospects, and generate a significant amount of job opportunities.
  • Yotta D1 is very helpful for worldwide connection because it offers Internet peering exchanges and direct fibre connectivity to and from international cloud operators.
  • Yotta D-1 will serve as the foundation for the 5G revolution in North India.
  • By 2025, it is predicted that India’s data analytics market will be worth more than $16 billion. Therefore, it is a step in the right direction to focus particularly on boosting investment in data center infrastructure.
  • Big businesses like Google and Twitter would be able to establish a data center for hosting, processing, and storing data if a data park was there.
  • Customers will have quick access to videos and financial services with the rollout of 5G and edge data centres from this center.
