Government Data Centre(GDC)

  1. The GDC project is a part of RGoB’s eGov initiative, funded by Government of India for the 11th Five Year Plan.
  2. As the warm shell already exists in the data centre at Thimphu Tech Park, the project will utilize the space allocated(1000 sq.ft) to Government at TTPL and install server systems, storage and network.
  3. Given space constraint and taking into account scalability requirement in the future, the strategy is to opt for a high density data centre solution which optimizes the use of space. The project is to be undertaken as a turnkey project whereby the vendor who supplies servers, storage and network systems also configure and also migration of agencies’ systems to the data center.
