Rajasthan State Data Center

Rajasthan was pioneer State to establish Data Centre way back in 2004-05 at 3rd, Floor, Yojana Bhawan, Jaipur. 

Further, the National e-Governance Plan (NeGP) has identified multiple mission mode projects along with various e-Governance initiatives at the State level to provide increased number of services electronically. State Data Centres are one of the three infrastructure pillars structured by the NeGP to facilitate web-enabled Anytime, Anywhere access. State Data Centres are conceptualized with the objective of providing a common enabling infrastructure to the States to cater to their e-governance applications hosting requirements of the entire state governments and its departments. 

Following the guidelines of DeitY, another Data Centre was established at 1st Floor, IT Building, Yojana Bhawan, Jaipur in the year 2011 to scale up the capacity of the existing Data Centre. Both the Data Centres are integrated and providing the services to the various stack holders of the State Government. 

Since, the first SDC was established in the year 2005. It was prudent to meet the need for integrating latest technological advancements to make them future proof for optimal utilization, better Management, Monitoring and services efficiently. Government of Rajasthan has taken various IT initiatives gradually to automate the processes of various Departments and required resources were being placed at both the Data Centres. 

The State Government has initiated new projects i.e. Bhamashah, City Surveillance , RajSampark, RajGis, RajNet, etc. Therefore, after having analysed the infrastructure at present, it has been decided to expand the existing Data Centre, 3rd Floor, Yojana Bhawan, Jaipur to scale up the capacity from 22 Racks to 81 Racks of the Data Centre and to meet out the new requirements and advancement in the technology. This Data Centre has been inaugurated by Hon'ble Chief Minister on 15-12-2015. 

One Data Centre (capacity of 16 Racks) was constructed by PWD at New Library Building, Secretariat in the year 2015. This Data Centre has been functional and being used to host the IT Infrastructure as near Disaster Recoveries (Near DR) Site.
