MOSCOW, December 3. /TASS/. The Norilsk Nickel Company completed upgrade of its data centers’ engineering infrastructures at two key industrial facilities – in the Polar Division and at the Kola Mining and Metallurgical Plant (Kola MMC), the company’s press service said on Monday.
“The data center’s upgrade is a part of Nornickel’s global program to implement high-performance computing systems,” the press service said. “The upgrade has increased the data centers’ fault tolerance and capacity.”
“The company has achieved a necessary level of safety in data keeping and processing,” the press service said, adding the upgrade’s cost is more than 450 million rubles ($6/8 million).
After the modernization, two data centers at the Polar Division have double capacity. In addition to systems, supporting the data centers’ IT infrastructures, the company has implemented a dispatch and management system for the Division’s engineering complex.
Earlier, in autumn, the company built two new data centers at the Kola MMC – in cities Monchegorsk and Zapolyarny.
Nornickel has been upgrading its data centers since 2015. The final stage would be an information cluster in Moscow, which will unite all the corporate information systems. This work is due to be completed by 2020.
Data centers are complexes of engineering and IT infrastructures, which are necessary for highly reliable computing power with a high level of fault tolerance and availability. They provide up-to-date information on conditions and parameters of engineering systems and technological processes.
