The new energy centre is connected directly to the city power grid with enhanced redundancy and reliability.

Moscow-based data centre operator IXcellerate has commissioned a new energy centre and increased its data centre campus power capacity in Moscow to 26MW.

The construction of the new energy centre comes as a part of IXcellerate’s strategic infrastructure development plan in Russia.

The company said that the increase of power available to the site is dictated by the growth of the company and serves both current and future customer needs across two data centres – IXcellerate Moscow One and Moscow Two, with a total capacity of 3,315 racks.

IXcellerate boasts 2N power availability to all its customers in compliance with the Uptime Institute Tier III requirements.

“This year our customers have installed a large number of new servers and network equipment, and demand for our services continues to grow,” said Konstantin Borman, Managing Director of IXcellerate.

“We are currently preparing for further expansion of our campus in the north of Moscow and are planning to upgrade our power infrastructure with additional 20MW next year.

“We are very proud that our success in attracting investments to the Russian data centre industry and building new facilities contributes to the development of digital technologies in the country.”

Recently, the company’s revenues increased by 29.4% in 2019, when compared to 2018. IXcellerate growth rates are 50% higher than market average due to a number of major hypercloud deals signed during the year.

Last year, the company officially opened its second Russian data centre. Moscow Two is now fully operational and 85% of capacity is already reserved for current and new customers.

The new data hall houses up to 1480 racks within one, undivided space, and has a project power capacity of 12MW.
