As part of the regional development of the 3data data center network, sites are being actively built on the territory of the Moscow region, which is one of the priority regions of the company's geographic expansion. At the end of 2019, the first phase of a franchised data center was implemented on the territory of a multifunctional class A + Industrial City park in Synkovo, Moscow Region. The CA107 data center became the first 3data data center outside Moscow.
Industrial City is an IT-charged industrial coworking space for business that meets all European and Russian quality standards with a ready-made engineering infrastructure. A modular solution was applied on the territory of the multifunctional park as part of the first phase of the 3data data center franchise project. The modular data center, developed and manufactured by the St. Petersburg company GreenMDC, has a high degree of factory readiness, which made it possible to build an MDC in a short time, accommodate customers and provide all the necessary infrastructure. At the second stage of the project, a classic 3data data center will be built with a design capacity of up to 200 racks.
For 10 years of work in the capital market, 3data has accumulated extensive expertise in the creation, operation and provision of data center services. An important element of the "entrance" to other cities and regions is the preservation of the concept of "walking distance", therefore, the site located in the Moscow region is not inferior in quality to Moscow data centers and at the same time provides a close location of the computing infrastructure for organizations operating in the southern regions of Moscow area. Data center "CA107" is provided with reliable connections using direct optical fibers "Mastertel", "Marathon" and other large telecom operators with all business centers and data processing centers in Moscow and the Moscow region, as well as access to cloud infrastructure.
Now 3data operates 14 sites in Moscow and the Moscow region. The company is keeping pace with the introduction of up to four new data centers per year. In the future, it is planned to increase this indicator, including due to the massive launch of regional data centers based on the franchising model. A large number of sites provides the proximity of the digital infrastructure for thousands of clients, high network availability, and allows building distributed solutions with high fault tolerance.
“We believe that there should be a data center in every city. Now we have decided on the priority regions in which we plan to develop according to the franchising model. In particular, we are making a significant step towards development in the Moscow region. We will be announcing projects in a number of other areas in the coming months. Over the next 10 years, in Moscow and the Moscow region, we plan to increase the number of our sites to 50, and across the country to 200, ”said Ilya Khala, General Director of 3data.
“We are glad that 3data has chosen GreenMDC modular data centers as an infrastructure solution for the development of its regional network. The synergy of 3data and GreenMDC competencies allowed to bring to the market a new technological solution in the segment of commercial data centers. I am sure that with our IDCs 3data will continue its dynamic development in the data center services market, ”said Fedor Klimenko, General Director of GreenMDC.
