Name of the project: Gujarat State Data Centre


Dept. under which the project was taken: Science & Technology Department, GoG  




To consolidate services, applications and infrastructure so as to ensure efficient electronic delivery of G2G, G2C and G2B services.


Project Description

Under the National e-Governance Plan (NeGP) of Government of India, State Data Centre (SDC) has been identified as one of the core and critical infrastructure components needed for consolidation and hosting of applications that are essential for the delivery of e-Governance services. SDC would be integrated with the other two core infrastructure components i.e SWAN and CSC/E-Gram.

Government of Gujarat has set up Gujarat State Data Center (GSDC) in Gandhinagar, the State capital. GSDC includes 2600 sq.ft of server & storage area, 600 sq.ft of connectivity zone and 1300 sq.ft of control room & utility area. GSDC has been connected to all the Government offices through GSWAN infrastructure.

Gujarat State Data Centre will act as a mediator and convergence point between open unsecured public domain and sensitive government environment. The GSDC has been equipped to host / co-locate systems such as Web Servers, Application Servers, Database Servers, SAN, and NAS etc.

GSDC will provide much functionality such as Central Repository of the State, Secure Data Storage, Online Delivery of Citizen Information/Services Portal, State Intranet Portal, Disaster Recovery, Remote Management and Service Integration etc. GSDC would also provide better operation & management control and minimize overall cost of Data Management, IT Resource Management, Deployment and other costs.
