ST. PETERSBURG, MOSCOW, RUSSIA, WARSAW POLAND, TALLINN, ESTONIA (PRWEB) December 23, 2011
AMSTERDAM, THE NETHERLANDS, Linxdatacenter St. Petersburg once again proves to offer an extraordinary proposition on a regional and international scale. Receiving such a prestigious award is especially remarkable after only two months from the official opening, performed by the Linxdatacenter CEO Jules Delahaije and Prime Minister of the Netherlands Mark Rutte.
Jules Delahaije says: “We are very proud, particularly since we had a strong competition to stand against in the group. First we had to surpass over twenty global datacenter providers. Two weeks ago that number went down to four finalists who stood next to each other in the ultimate run. Winning this award demonstrates our genuine strength and advantage in the market.”
Linxdatacenter St. Petersburg is one of the largest and most advanced facilities of its kind in Russia. Covering 9.000 square meters, it is 18 times bigger than an average datacenter and has enough power and capacity to serve up to 17 million customers. Winning the Mega-Data centre Award places Linxdatacenter among Barclays, Microsoft, Fujitsu and Morgan Stanley — winners in that category of the previous editions of DatacenterDynamics Datacenter Leaders Awards.
“One of the reasons behind rewarding Linxdatacenter with the Mega DC title, besides quality and implemented solutions, was acknowledging the impressive time from the design to the deployment. Bringing to the local market such an advanced offering and high quality level in so short period is extraordinary and imposing,” adds Mark Gibbs, Linxdatacenter VP Operations.
The datacenters participating in the mega-datacenter category of “DatacenterDynamics Datacenter Leaders´ Awards” are the landmark that sustain today’s technology-driven world. Each datacenter that has ever happened to become a winner in that category enables a quantity of transactions, storage and IT applications that make possible many business and life activities.
Richard van Wageningen, General Director Linxdatacenter Russia: “Our objective is to provide the highest quality and offer solutions that meet and exceed the requirements of our most demanding global and local customers.
