About our journal

Russia's first specialized journal covering the data center industry

The data center market has made a huge leap forward over the past decade, while the term "data center" has become customary. When it all began, the engineers' efforts were focused mainly on the development of fault-tolerant data center infrastructure. Today, they focus on the efficiency and energy saving, as well.

Despite the fact that the data center industry has existed as a professional sector for a long time, to date, there were no specialized publications about the DC market covering different aspects of the industry, the calculations of engineering systems, data center construction and operation know-hows, emerging problems, solutions to those problems, and other relevant topics.

Now we can boldly state that this gap will be filled in Russia. The information we've accumulated coupled with close contacts with a great number of data center operators, companies, solution suppliers and equipment manufacturers allows us to spread info on various solutions for data centers and continually cover the questions you're interested in, events and activities.
