Processing data centers and network infrastructure required for normal operation of the system are located in two different geographical locations in cloud hosts in Russia and Europe.

DataLine datacenter

Located in Moscow, certified with PCI DSS Level 1 and ISO/IEC 27001:2005

Multi-level infrastructure of physical protection of the data center includes a system of automatic fire extinguishing system, which uses special gas, CCTV cameras and alarms, and other control and access systems.

Video monitoring and recording is done 24/7 inside the data center and of the surrounding territory. Guards control all access to inside of the data center.

Data center is connected to the grid by using 2N technology — meaning that each server rack is connected via 2 feeds. The UPS inside the data center are rated at 500 kWt, which allows the data-center to work for 5-6 minutes — more than enough to launch a diesel generator. Diesel generators are automatically launched, should a “MosEnergo” power grid fail. The oil and antifreeze of the generators are always kept warm, which means that the generators are always ready to be launched (time to launch the generator and until it reaches a full operation capacity is under 1 minute).

The diesel generator tanks are filled with enough fuel to last for 6 hours, and contracts are made for quick fuel deliveries, which will let the data center continue uninterrupted service even in long power grid failures.

Uninterrupted access to the hardware located in the data center is done via reserved high-speed connections, with bandwidth of up to 10gbps. The data center notes are connected via optic fiber connections (which allow up to 40Gb/sec connection bandwidth), including the DataLine access points MMTC9 and MMTC10. There is also a 10Gbit/sec line to MSK-IX
