CREATING AN INCREASED CAPACITY DATA CENTER (2015)

VTB 24

GOALS AND OBJECTIVES

  • BUSINESS OBJECTIVE

    To consolidate IT resources and reduce the cost of operating the bank’s data center.

  • IT OBJECTIVE

    To consolidate the bank's IT infrastructure within a single, fault-tolerant node.

SOLUTION

  • STULZ conditioning systems
  • An SCS based on optical components of OM4 and OS2 class, using pre-terminated cable assemblies
  • An Extended capacity UPS and two diesel generators

IMPLEMENTATION

In July 2015, Jet Infosystems put a new data center into operation for VTB24, with total capacity of 1600 kW. The new center united four of the bank’s currently operating data centers into a single, fault-tolerant node, using a common SCS based on an optical cable, which allows data transmission at speeds of up to 40 Gbps.

The project also encompassed preparation / construction of the premises, reinforcement of ceilings, and installation of a raised floor. Inside the server room, two containment areas were built to accommodate high-load racks, eliminating the risk of local overheating of the data center. The air conditioning system uses free cooling technology.
Thanks to the efficient arrangement of piping and the use of compact efficient air conditioners, it was possible to save up to 20% of the space in the server room. All the new data center’s engineering equipment is connected to a unified, automated dispatch control system for VTB24 data centers.

Power supply continuity is supported by an extended capacity UPS and two diesel generators, and operation can be performed autonomously up to 20 minutes on the UPS and up to 8 hours on the diesel generators.

The reliability level of the engineering infrastructure is Tier III. Equipment of different power ratings can be placed in the data center – in total, the center provides for approximately 100 racks.
