Russian telecoms operator, MTS, has acquired the GreenBush data centre in the Zelenograd suburb of Moscow.
Opened in 2018, the Tier III facility is expected to offer 19MW of power across 5,220 sq m of technical space when fully developed. MTS said it plans to use the facility’s additional capacity to offer colocation and cloud solutions to customers as well as to facilitate the company’s own requirements.
According to Igor Egorov, Vice President for Infrastructure Development, “When fully equipped, GreenBush will rank among the top-five data centers in Russia by capacity, providing MTS with significant headroom to grow in the Moscow metro area, which today accounts for some 80 percent of the Russian commercial data center market.”
The company, owned by Russian conglomerate Sistema, now has twelve facilities located in Moscow, Nizhny Novgorod, Leningrad, Samara, Novosibirsk, Vladivostok, and Krasnodar.
