Yotta partners BLC for data centre project in Nepal

Yotta Data Services, which describes itself as India’s leading end-to-end digital transformation service provider, has announced a joint venture with BLC, a diversified entity encompassing manufacturing and services, to build a data centre near Kathmandu, Nepal.

The announcement of this data centre marks the debut of Yotta in Nepal and adds to a portfolio of five large data centres. It will be the second planned data centre for Yotta within the subcontinent but outside India, along with a data centre project in Dhaka, Bangladesh.

With a multi-million dollar outlay, K1, as it is known, is expected to be completed in the next 24 months. Spread across an area of more than three acres, the 60,000 square foot (about 5,574.2 square metre) facility will be developed with an overall capacity of up to 4MW critical IT load and enable both enterprises and hyperscale customers to futureproof their expansion options in the region.

Built to Tier III standards, K1 will be one of the largest data centres in Nepal and the first supercloud data centre in that country.

It will be constructed with a modular design ensuring, Yotta says, industry-leading uptime, reliability, scalability and flexibility to customers. It adds that, meeting ISO 14000 and ISO 50000 standards, the data centre will conform with world-class environmental and energy-efficiency policies.

The facility will have highly reliable power supported by dual high-voltage substations. It will also be carrier-neutral with a dense network through three diverse fibre entry paths and other customised connectivity options for customers.

K1 is to offer a suite of key features, ranging from advanced data security and customised business solutions to an indigenous hyperscale cloud offering, state-of-the-art infrastructure, cybersecurity expertise, seamless integration with managed IT services and 24/7 customer support.
