Uttar Pradesh to get its gigantic data center by June 2022

Due to a shortage of data centers, companies in the state are forced to keep their data abroad

India’s most populous state Uttar Pradesh has finally announced to have its own data center in Noida by June 2022. Earlier, the state used to keep all its data abroad including the classified one.

Now, with an investment of around Rs 6000 Crore, tech magnates such as Google, Facebook, Central Cart, YouTube, and Amazon will keep its data in the state. The state announced that the new data center will employ around 2,000 youth within a capacity of 250 MW.

It is going to be the largest data center in North India and will offer indirect employment and business opportunities to more than 2000 people. According to a report of IANS, IT companies working in Uttar Pradesh and elsewhere will also get a lot of help in doing their business. It will be the first-of-its-kind data center park equipped with state-of-the-art technology and facilities.

During the ongoing pandemic, the entire venture was implemented and conceptualized. Mumbai’s Hiranandani Group has been assigned with the task of constructing the 20-acre data center in Noida. The group previously constructed data centers in Hyderabad, Chennai, and Mumbai. Now, it is going to build the largest data center in Northern India.

An investment of Rs 10,000 crore has been proposed to the UP government by leading business tycoons such as Earth companies, Adani Group, and Rack Bank. A government spokesperson said to the media that due to a huge shortage of data centers, companies doing their operations in the state were forced to keep their data outside India.

State Minister Siddharth Nath Singh said to IANS that it will be the most modern and large data center in North India. In the coming time, such data center will also be constructed in other parts of the state.
