1 Nov 2012, London - KDDI has today announced the opening of its first data center in Russia in central Moscow for the 1st November 2012.
TELEHOUSE MOSCOW forms part of the global expansion strategy to accommodate the needs of its growing client base and development into emerging markets, marking the 45th global TELEHOUSE data center.
In partnership with local colocation operator Dataspace, the new TELEHOUSE MOSCOW data center is located within their 6,200㎡ site in Sharikopodshipnikovskaya. It is the only Tier III data center certified for its design and facility by the Uptime Institute. TELEHOUSE MOSCOW will be managed by Telehouse International Corp. of Europe Ltd. in London Docklands and KDDI's Russian operations will be managing all internal cabling by multilingual staff.
Hiroshi Kobayashi, Managing Director of Telehouse International Corp. of Europe Ltd. and KDDI Europe, "We recognize Russia as a key emerging market due to its substantial internet growth and the rapid progress of Moscow's IT infrastructure, establishing the capital as a potential major data center hub within Eastern Europe. We intend long-term investment with our TELEHOUSE business in Russia. Our experience and relationships within the local market will enable us to play a key role in Moscow's international ICT development."
The carrier-neutral data center employs the latest technology in security access systems including iris and biometric hand scanners making it one of the most reliable and secure data centre facilities in Russia. With focus on hosting multinational corporations, TELEHOUSE MOSCOW offers shared facility management with average 4kW per footprint provision.
Kobayashi continues, "For over 20 years, we have maintained a reputation for instilling confidence in companies around the world to trust and partner with third party providers for security, reliability and connectivity of their data, who have traditionally managed their systems in-house. TELEHOUSE MOSCOW will continue our commitment in managing our customer's ICT infrastructure cost efficiently and ensuring them peace of mind."
This new global expansion is in addition to the acquisition of Databurg in Frankfurt, Germany in January 2012 and announcements of further new builds in China and Hong Kong.
