New modular data center MTS in Leningrad blastogenetic Belas | 29.10.2020
October 28, in the village of Fedorovskoe (Tosno district of Leningrad region) held a ceremonial commissioning of the modular data center of MTS.
According to the Governor of Leningrad region Alexander Drozdenko, in order to fully realize the project of this data center will need about 16 to 20 MW of electricity. “MTS company our longtime partner,
it helps us to implement the project on provision of social institutions of the Leningrad region with a stable connection, including broadband Internet. This connection is already provided approximately 240 social facilities
our goal this number to increase to 462 social institutions and we will decide in the next year. Our partnership is time-tested, we look forward to continued mutually beneficial
cooperation with MTS,” said Alexander Drozdenko.
Then a word took the President of MTS Alexey Root. He said he was very pleased to hold the 27th birthday of MTS in the Leningrad region during the opening of the largest modular data center in the Northwest
Russia. This data center will cover the whole North-West MTS and will provide infrastructure for the region. DPC can achieve the capacity up to 20 MW. “Today we are launching the first phase of the data center power 8
MW, we have allocated capacity to 16 MW. It will be the largest data center in the Northwest. Investment in first data center amounted to 1.8 billion rubles, the second stage will require another 1.2 billion rubles (up to 16
MW), stated Alexey Root. According to him, this is one of the key regions from the point of view of infrastructure for social facilities. MTS has a wide range of digital services for
corporate clients, individuals, state enterprises and institutions.
Then answered journalists ‘ questions Alexander Tishkin, head of construction and development of engineering infrastructure of data centers. When building this data center uses a modular principle.
The modules are manufactured at the factory and delivered to the site ready-made, along with racks, panel Board equipment, uninterruptible power supply.
Today, the forum was launched two modules of 900 kW useful IT load. Each module can contain up to 120 server racks filled with equipment, the power consumption of each
server rack is from 7 to 18 kW. The main essence of data center failover and continuity, resiliency of the data center is – 99,99982, which corresponds to
1.4 hours of unplanned downtime per year. The new data center has passed two certifications of the international organization the Uptime Institute. In the first stage is certified by the project documentation, the second
stage – ready built data center. This data center is certified tier 3. Currently implemented modules and future plans include the installation of two more modules. MTS is now firmly
considering the possibility of building one of the two modules for the colocation. Today in advanced modules will work app Cloud, M2M, IoT.
Since electrical power is already supplied, and for the following two modules, then the next module can be completed within 6 months. In addition, about 1-2 months is spent
certified by the Uptime Institute. In the next 1-2 years can be commissioned in all 4 modules. This is the second data center, MTS, built on a modular technology, early data centers were built MTS landline
and implemented in existing buildings. Platform for modular data centers are chosen with great potential for power generation. MTS new data center switched to using propylene glycol in
refrigeration systems, in addition to this, it is clean and environmentally friendly gas Novec 1230. In addition, in the form of pilot projects by MTS was implemented adiabatic module
which uses technology natural free cooling, i.e. in the same data center even there are no compressors and used outdoor air passing through the heat exchanger.
This is a private development of MTS. Since the data center certified by Uptime Institute, the pilot project considered a success.
At MTS this data center is the 11th, the average data Center life cycle is 15-20 years. Usually 7-10 years is reengineering – i.e. the adaptation of the data center under advanced equipment. What
for new sites, it is already comparable in strength to the construction of the data center in the Siberian Federal district, the DPC will be launched next year. Also, according to Alexander Tishkin goes
selection of sites in the southern Federal district.
