The Uttar Pradesh Government signs a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with Innogress for setting up Indraprastha Quantum Data Center (IQDC), India’s first quantum computing data center, at Greater Noida.
Recent years have seen the Uttar Pradesh government has attracted multiple data center projects, especially in the Noida/Greater Noida region, but this is the first time a new data center has been proposed using cutting-edge quantum computing technology.
All data centers in India up to this point have been built using traditional computing technologies, which have their own set of performance and technological constraints. Due to recent Quantum Computer based algorithms discovered by Chinese scientists, which are believed to be good enough to break RSA based data encryption, the existing classical data centers are vulnerable to Quantum Computer based security attacks. As a result, data centers based on classical computing will have enormous energy and space requirements.
According to Sumant Parimal, Founding Partner of Innogress, due to performance / speed, energy, space, and data security concerns, existing data centers are likely to experience redundancy in the future. This is because the entire computing and data storage architecture is based on traditional computing, which is bits (0,1) based and built on semiconductor chips.
On the other hand, quantum computers constructed on quantum chips do computation and information storage utilizing qubits, which are substantially faster in speed, store a higher volume of data on the same chip size, and need less energy to perform computation. Technology in the field of quantum computing is relatively new, rapidly developing, and capable of supporting future artificial intelligence. emerging applications for (artificial intelligence). increased demand for computational resources.
“Keeping these latest Tech. innovations in mind, we at Innogress in collaboration with our UK Partner GAN Tech. UK Ltd. and prospective investors, proposing to set up India’s first Quantum Computing Data Center, Indraprastha Quantum Data Center, at Gr. Noida U.P. under the framework of incentives launched by U.P. Govt. during the ongoing U.P. Global Investors Summit2023 progg. We are aligning our proposed Quantum Tech. Data Center Project ‘IQDC’ with the vision of Hon’ble CM of U.P. and Hon’ble PM of India for developing U.P. and India as innovative Technologies hub. Our proposed data center is going to be quantum safe and going to enable high performance computing requirements of New India,” said Parimal.
