TTK Partners with Moscow-based Data Center DataSpace
DataSpace and TTK - one of the largest telecom operators in Russia have entered into a partnership agreement that will enable the operator to install its equipment in DataSpace1 data center, located in the downtown Moscow in order to provide telecommunications services to data center’s customers.
Kirill Pavelev, Vice President of Technology, DataSpace: "Currently, there is a rather limited choice of telecom operators that are able to provide high-quality communication nationwide. We are extremely pleased that a company such as TTK has chosen DataSpace1 for hosting its point of presence. Thanks to a partnership with TTK our DataSpace1 data center is now directly connected to one of the fastest and most extensive fiber optic networks in Russia. DataSpace1 customers will now be able to cut out the middlemen that previously connected customer’s equipment to the nearest TTK point of presence, taking their cut of the pie in process".
Vitaly Kotov, Vice President, Head of the Backbone Division, TTK, commented: “DataSpace1 is a highly resilient data center that meets international availability standards; cooperation with them is bound to be beneficial to our own high availability services. We are happy to begin this new relationship.”
DataSpace is provider-neutral with 19 licensed operators that have a point of presence in the company’s data center.
DataSpace is a major Russian commercial data center operator in the Moscow market. DataSpace1 - the first data center of the company with power capacity of 9.5 MW, raised floor area of 3,000 m2 and capacity for more than 1,000 racks was put into operation in 2012. It recently became the first and only facility in Russia to have successfully passed all three levels of Tier III international certification by the Uptime Institute: Tier III Design, Tier III Facility and Tier III Operational Sustainability-Gold. DataSpace focuses on comprehensive management and operational sustainability of its data centers and offers an unrestricted access to IT and telecom service providers, thanks to its flexible, neutral approach and extensive partnership programs with all the major providers.
