Hiranandani Group’s Yotta Data Services has made its Yotta G1 data centre operational in Gujarat International Finance Tec-City (GIFT City) in Gujarat, India.

G1 is Yotta’s fifth data centre in India, with two others located in Navi Mumbai and Greater Noida as part of hyper scale campuses. This facility marks the company’s presence in Gujarat, highlighting how Hiranandani continues to expand data centre operations across India.

The Yotta data centre aims to offer full stack data centre services, including colocation, cloud services, managed security and IT managed services. This will allow businesses to utilise cybersecurity services, store and process data and applications.

A scalable data centre ecosystem

As a managed data centre service provider, Yotta aims to create an ultra-scalable, hyper-density data centre ecosystem ready for a future governed by huge data demand. As a part of the Hiranandani Group, Yotta prides itself on data centre expertise and power generation capability with a goal of offering its customers scalability, flexibility and quality and a way to scale up at a reduced cost.

Also working towards helping businesses enter the hyperscale space, Yotta launched India’s first hyperscale data centre in 2022.

According to Data Centre Dynamics, the new Yotta data centre has space for more than 350 racks and 2MW of IT capacity. It is designed to be scaled according to the demands of the customer, allowing them to innovate in a flexible way.

According to the company, the new data centre will also operate for global customers for colocation, cloud computing and storage functions, in addition to acting as a local data centre for customers with sovereignty requirements.

Yotta in particular is working hard to establish an ecosystem that caters to the changing needs of customers during a period of mass digital transformation. In particular, the company is partnering with leading AI chip company NVIDIA to establish an AI data centre in GIFT City.

Shanker Trivedi, Senior VP of NVIDIA Global Field Operations, recently spoke about a need for infrastructure in India to be built with AI in mind. The companies are working together to support the successful development and deployment of AI.

India: Helping businesses enter the hyperscale

India is fast-emerging as a promising location for data centre development. It was predicted that the nation’s data centre industry could reach US$4.5bn by 2025, in addition to reportedly being on track to reach 1.318GW by 2024, growing to 1.4GW by 2025.

Expanding hyperscale data centres, much like those by Hiranandani and Yotta, highlight strategic enterprise expansions and a commitment to supporting the increasing hyperscale cloud service demands of businesses in a fast-growing market.

Indeed, the companies also hold facilities in Navi Mumbai, which Data Centre Magazine has previously reported accounts for half of the country’s data centre capacity. By working to build and operate a large hyperscale network, Indian data centres are aiming to provide core and edge capabilities to meet the growing transformational needs of its customers.

Sunil Gupta, Co-Founder, Managing Director and CEO of Yotta Data Services, says: “Yotta’s G1 marks a pivotal milestone in delivering high-end data centre, Cloud, AI compute, storage, connectivity and cybersecurity services to enterprises both on a global and local scale in the Gujarat region. 

“Besides serving the domestic enterprises within and outside GIFT City, our data centre shall serve as a potential data embassy for global enterprises, enabling them to adhere to their respective country’s laws while offering a dependable and secure locale for offshore data storage.”
