Yotta Infrastructure, a Hiranandani Group subsidiary and a Managed Data Center service provider signed an MoU with the Government of Tamil Nadu to set up a Data Center Park in Chennai.
The data center park will spread over a 13-acre campus in Chennai. Hiranandani Group and its subsidiaries, along with Yotta, will invest around Rs 4,000 crore in this proposed project over 8-10 years.
The proposed data center park will be built at Hiranandani Parks on the Singaperumal- Oragadam highway and will host a total of four data center buildings with a capacity of 20,000 racks.
Darshan Hiranandani, Group CEO, Hiranandani Group said “We have chosen Chennai to set up our Data Center Park since it’s a global hub for major technology companies as well as has the strategic advantage of being a major international fiber landing station.”
The Tamil Nadu govt will provide facilitation in the form of necessary infrastructural support, regulatory approvals, permissions and registration facilitation subject to applicable laws. This will also help to generate approximately 2000-2500 direct and indirect jobs in the state.
“We will be extending our full support towards this project and once completed, this data center park will provide important cloud-based services to companies not only in the state but across India, serving as an important pillar in our overall digital infrastructure,” said Neeraj Mittal IAS, MD & CEO, Guidance, Industries Department, government of Tamil Nadu.
