A state-of-the-art Tier IV data center worth Tk 2,000 crore will be built in Gazipur’s Bangabandhu Hi-Tech City, Kaliakoir.
This ambitious venture will span two colossal hyper-scale data centers. A whopping 4,800 racks boasting an impressive IT power capacity of 28.8MW shall be generated through this center.
The initiative falls in line with the Hiranandani Group’s pursuit of innovative digital solutions and infrastructure.
During his ongoing visit to India, Zunaid Ahmed Palak, the State Minister for ICT, disseminated this news via his verified Facebook profile.
Palak’s engagement extended to a meeting with key figures in the Hiranandani Group.
Palak met Niranjan Hiranandani in that short meeting, celebrated as an ethical business tycoon and the fourth wealthiest individual globally.
During an assembly at the group’s Mumbai office, the ICT minister also conversed with Darshan Hiranandani, co-founder of Yotta Data Services Pvt Ltd, and Sunil Gupta, co-founder & CEO.
“Beyond merely discussing the establishment of the data center, our deliberations encompassed the critical realm of cyber security and the expansive domain of cloud computing,” said Palak.
Notably, Bangladesh’s role emerged as pivotal in propelling the Hiranandani Group toward a position of regional dominance in these dynamic sectors.
The stride toward constructing this state-of-the-art data center resonates with the Hiranandani Group’s strategic vision, aligning with economic and technological aspirations.
Establishing this data center hub signifies a remarkable leap forward in the ongoing technological evolution of Bangladesh and further solidifies the partnership between India and Bangladesh in shaping a digitally empowered future.
