FirstVDS described the daily activities of the IXcellerate Moscow North campus in their blog on Habr .
FirstVDS hosting provider, which has recently increased its presence in IXcellerate data centres, described its interaction with our data center as seen through the eyes of one of its employees. The engineer Pavel Reshetnikov has been assigned to the Moscow North campus since 2018, and in his blog he writes about the history of the company and the growth of the campus, about site access, security and safety, about the architecture and engineering of the MOS1 data centre, fire-safety measures, power and cooling supply, connectivity, management and much more.
“All security, cameras, access control – it’s all state-of-the-art. Access is gained after filing a visit request filed in advance or if you have a special card, which works both for the seconded staff of third-party companies and IXcellerate employees. These days, with the COVID pandemic still on-going, all incoming visitors must additionally pass a temperature checkand receive a hand bracelet, without which one can’t be on the premises”.
