The IXcellerate team continues sharing knowledge with young professionals on the latest data centre market trends and innovations. The Higher School of Economics students, studying Business informatics and IT, visited IXcellerate Moscow One Datacentre in April, 2016 accompanied by their supervisor Rafael Sukhov.
Commencing with a “big picture session” IXcellerate experts presented the data center and its main facility features, as well as an overview of global development trends in the IT and telecoms world. Students also had a chance to visit the operational data halls and service rooms, witnessing key elements of the existing engineering infrastructure, including the free cooling system and innovative water mist fire suppression system HI-FOG.
Dina Nurkaeva, Chief Marketing Officer of IXcellerate, noted that the Russian market requires graduates, who have not only a strong theoretical background but also a practical skillset and a comprehensive knowledge regarding the latest industry innovations. IXcellerate’s team is always happy to cooperate with, and support undergraduate communities and encourages Universities to get touch and get to know our industry’s latest innovations, resulting in student tours being both educational and practical.
