En+ Group, the Russia-based IT group LANIT and the government of the Irkutsk region have signed an agreement with China’s Huawei to build a major data processing center in Irkutsk. The document was signed during Russian President Vladimir Putin’s visit to the People’s Republic of China, TASS Russian News Agency cited the press service at Huawei as saying.
The project involves the construction of a data processing center with a capacity of up to 1,800 racks (server cabinets) by 2018, with proposed expansion of the initial capacity to 8,000 racks by 2024, which, in the company’s estimation, meets approximately 1% of the total market demand in the Silk Road Economic Belt countries (the project of creating a transportation, power supply and trade corridor linking Central and Southern Asian nations with Europe). The data center will be equipped to provide high-tech IT services on Russian and Asian markets, focusing with up to 80% of its capacity on Asian (primarily Chinese) clients. Among other resources, the data center is expected to offer cloud infrastructure, high performance computing and big data analytics services.
The Chinese corporation puts the project costs of the first stage of the data center at approximately $55m, with the second stage costs expected to be in excess of $300m. The project is to be financed by the partners’ internal resources as well as with project funding extended by Chinese banks and funds.
This is the first turnkey commercial data centre that Huawei is building in Russia, Valery Goldfeld, director for work with key clients at Huawei’s Russian office, told Vedomosti. The project is based on Huawei technologies – from server cabinets, uninterruptible power supply systems and cooling systems to an integrated engineering infrastructure control and monitoring system. The contract not only envisages the construction of the data centre, but also its certification and two-year support, Goldfeld noted. Huawei will build a data centre on Varshavskoye Highway in Moscow for Comcor (part of the Akado Group), a source close to one of the project participants told Vedomosti. Huawei and Akado representatives Tatyana Fomicheva and Denis Rychka confirmed the construction of a data centre. Rychka said the operator and manufacturer agreed to build the data centre in October 2014. Huawei will perform all work related to the construction of the data centre – from designing it to producing equipment, Rychka said. This is the first data centre to be built in Russia by Huawei from start to finish, the source said.
The first stage of construction is to be completed by September 2015: the installation of the first 100 rack cabinets at the data centre. The data centre will have a total of 423 rack cabinets (area of roughly 2,000 square metres) and will be put into operation in 2016, Rychka said. The total budget of the project is estimated at approximately USD 7 million, the source said.
