Uttarakhand Chief Minister Trivendra Singh Rawat on Monday inaugurated the country’s first Hyper Converged Infrastructure State Data Centre here, saying it will facilitate the completion of projects in a time-bound manner. All information related to government departments will now be available at one place.
“The establishment of a data centre like this one will definitely benefit the state. Information on all government departments will now be available at one place. It will also help in speeding up our activities and save energy,” Rawat said after inaugurating the facility at IT Park on the Sahastradhara Road.
“We had to develop a system which helps the government start and complete development projects within a fixed time frame. A state-of-the-art data centre which the state had long been waiting for is a step in that direction,” the Chief Minister said.
The three-tier state data centre has been developed by the Information Technology Development Agency (ITDA) of the Uttarakhand Government. It is the first data centre in the country with 100 per cent software-based Hyper Converged Infrastructure (HCI) technology. The data centre has 105 terabyte form, which can be expanded up to 12 petabyte.
