DataSpace and Zeppelin: 5 years of cooperation

DataSpace and Zeppelin: 5 years of cooperation

On October 29, 2012, DataSpace Data Center located in Moscow was put into operation.

It's now more than 1,650 days that DataSpace operates without downtime and failure since its launch.

DataSpace, in partnership with Zeppelin Power Systems Russland, a Cat® dealer, has developed an engineering infrastructure that can service any of the 6 Cat 3516B diesel generator sets (DGS), providing 2 MVA of backup power each.

This configuration allows you to shut down any of the generators for scheduled maintenance without reducing the level of redundancy of the data center nominal power with the remaining five DGSs.

DataSpace is the first data center in Russia to obtain Uptime Institute Tier III Gold certificate for design, construction, and operation. Certification confirms the ability to shut down any critical component of the data center for testing, maintenance or repair without downtime affecting the operation of the customer's IT equipment.

When choosing a backup power provider, DataSpace was guided by the availability of world experience in implementing turnkey projects for data centers. DataSpace, in partnership with Zeppelin Power Systems Russland, has designed a reliable backup power supply infrastructure. The project includes preliminary development, procurement, assembly, installation of generators and auxiliary equipment, full onsite testing in Germany before the equipment is mounted at the facility in Moscow, commissioning, training personnel in operational management, remote monitoring, and long-term contract for maintenance service. All equipment has passed full-scale tests. DataSpace - Zeppelin collaboration is organized in such a way that Zeppelin engineers promptly respond to customer needs using spare parts available in DataSpace warehouse.
