VIJAYAWADA:A major technology start-up - Pi Datacentres - will come up at Mangalagiri near Vijayawada by next year.

Ground breaking ceremony was performed on Wednesday by its founder and CEO Kalyan Muppaneni in 10 acres land allotted by the state government recently. It will be the first 4-certified Datacenter in South India.

The total investment sought to be made in phases in the datacentre would be of the order of `600 crore.

According to Kalyan, the company proposes to provide 300 highly skilled jobs and 2,000 jobs as indirect employment.

“We will mostly hire local talent for filling highly skilled jobs since students coming out of colleges in Vijayawada and its surroundings are highly talented,” he said, speaking to mediapersons here.

The datacentre will have a capacity of 5,000 racks with each rack having 42 server units.

Each server unit would be able to handle 30 to 100 operating systems, Kalyan said.

Construction of the datacentre will begin in two months’ time from now and it would become operational by April next year. 

The state government was providing onsite 33/11 kV substation for supplying 60 MW power, laying four lane access road to the datacentre and provide continuous water supply.
