DataLine Data Center

Computing resources and a network infrastructure, which are required for a system operation, are located in 2 geographically distributed cloud data centers in Russia and Europe.

DataLine Data Center

It is located in Moscow, has PCI DSS Level 1 and ISO/IEC 27001:2005 certifications.

A multi-layer infrastructure to provide a data center’s physical protection includes a gaseous fire suppression system, a security television system and a security alarm system, an access monitoring and control system.

There is surveillance, indoor and outdoor video recording, which continue 24/7. There are hatches at entry, supervised by a security service.

A data centre’s power supply is provided with a 2N redundancy: each rack in rooms is powered over 2 spokes. 500 kW uninterruptible power supply units in data centre modules provide a standalone power supply within 5 to 6 minutes (this time will allow start-up DGUs). Diesel generator units (DGU) as backup power supplies are automatically started up when the Mosenergo electric system fails. An oil and antifreeze grease of diesel engines are continuously in a warmed-up condition, so DGUs are constantly ready to start (a time of launching and switching to an operating mode is less than 1 minute).

Fuel tanks of diesel generators support 6 working hours. Note that contracts for prompt delivery of diesel fuel are concluded. It will allow maintaining a data centre operation even during a city mains’ long-term failure.

Uninterruptible access to equipment, used in a data centre, is carried out using redundant high-speed data links with a bandwidth up to 10 Gb. Data centres are integrated to a fibre-optical ring (with a link bandwidth up to 40 Gb/s), including DataLine’s points of presence at MMTC9 and ММТС10. There is a 10 Gb/s link to MSK-IX.

Armor Data Center

It is located in Amsterdam and has PCI DSS Level 1, ISO/IEC 27001:2005, SSAE 16 and HIPAA certifications

Armour is one of the biggest international cloud data centres. Below you will find some data:

  • Up to 5.000 cloud servers
  • Multiple N+1 configuration, standalone mode during 7 minutes (on-load)
  • N+1 corresponds to a distributed redundancy model
  • 4 diesel generators, per 2000 kW
  • Fuel capacity for 55 hours with high-priority refuelling
  • Cooling loop in 2N. Computer conditioners in N+2
  • Aspiration fire detectors and systems
  • Analog optical fire detectors, supporting a dual detonation protocol
