Navi Mumbai is now home to Asia's largest data centre- Yotta NM1

Yotta NM1 is the largest Tier IV data centre in Asia and second largest in the world!

Navi Mumbai has got a brand new data centre called the Yotta NM1, which is India's largest. This data centre is certified by Uptime Institute in Asia and is the second-largest in the world. The Yotta NM1 is located in the 600 acres, Hiranandani Fortune City, Pavel.


Digital Inauguration for Yotta NM1

Yotta NM1 was inaugurated by Chief Minister of Maharashtra, in the virtual presence of Minister for Communications, Electronics & Information Technology and Law & Justice, Govt. of India and Minister of Industries and Mining, Govt. of Maharashtra over a video conference.

Yotta is a complete package from control over input resources, presence of huge land banks that also have green energy generation and distribution capacities. The unequalled expertise and experience in various data centre branches of design, engineering, construction and operations along with massive economies of scale is what makes Yotta one of its kind. This indigenous ownership and control makes Yotta NM1 a global pioneer not only in terms of of capability and cost but also, in terms of its focus on efficiency and sustainability.

Yotta NM1 is first of the five data centre buildings coming up at this Integrated Yotta Data Centre Park, which, once fully built, will have an overall capacity of 30,000 racks and 250 MW power, Yotta Infrastructure said.

At 820,000 sq. ft, 7,200 racks, 50 MW of power and 4 redundant self-owned fiber paths connecting the data centre to national highways, the Yotta NM1 data centre is capable of hosting global Cloud, content and OTT operators besides the mission-critical applications of enterprises and governments, the company said.

"This particular data centre is a powerful statement of intent that India is rising high in the quest of data security, data use and data innovation," Union IT Minister was quoted as saying in a statement.

"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," he said.

Besides Navi Mumbai, Yotta is also developing similar sized giant data centre parks at Chennai and New Delhi.

Each of these parks will feature more than 20,000 racks, 200 MW plus power and multiple self-owned fiber paths connecting the park to the main highways, Yotta Infrastructure said, adding that it plans to invest about Rs 15,000 crore over next seven to 10 years across these data centre parks.

Knock Knock

Coinciding with the Prime Minister's Digital India and Made in India, this data centre is a big step in India's venture into the shared data space. As enterprises and government agencies aim at self-reliance (Atmanirbhar) now more than they did previously, emphasis on data privacy/protection and consequently on data localisation has become primary in their supply chains. This heightened need of data management in today's time of unprecedented digital growth has given rise to the need of having world class data management and storage centres and Yotta NM1 is just that!

This 150-year-old temple in Kanpur is dedicated to Ravan & opens for devotees only on Dusshehra!

Did you know that Ravan got his name from Lord Shiva & was an excellent Veena player?
