The Saint Petersburg Data Processing Center now at the final stage of commissioning has received two certificates confirming its compliance to the requirements of Uptime Institute, Tier III reliability level (Design certificate and Facility certificate).

 Uptime Institute is an organization with the experience of servicing the largest data processing centers in America and Europe and the ultimate knowledge base in the world in this field held since 1993.  

Uptime Institute is the first and so far the only organization in the world performing certification according to Tier Classification.

 The first certificate, Tier Certification of Design Documents, received by the Saint Petersburg Paper Mill confirms functional abilities and efficiency of the engineering systems and architectural characteristics of the Data Processing Center. Put it simply, it is the approval of the Data Processing Center project. 

The second certificate, Tier Certification of Constructed Facility, guarantees that the Data Processing Center has been built in accordance with the project.

Dmitry Tyunkov, the Line Manager of the Data Processing Centers of Goznak, one of the few Russian specialists certified at Uptime Institute and accredited according to Tier standard (Accredited Tier Designer), explained that the existence of a reserve data processing center is an important criterion of fail-operational capability of an enterprise.

“The modern data transmission technologies and the existence of two data processing centers, the main and the reserve make it possible to provide uninterrupted work of information systems and security of critically important data in case of force-majeure events.  

The construction of the Data Processing Center at the Saint Petersburg Paper Mill started in 2016 and was carried out in two stages – projecting and realization of the project decisions.

The arrived digital reality requires ever-greater volumes for reliable storage and processing of data. Goznak meets the challenges of the reality by accomplishing the construction of a data processing center in Saint Petersburg. The existence of two Data Processing Centers certified by Uptime Institute automatically raises the international rating of the enterprise and includes Goznak into the list of the top 20 companies of the Russian data processing market."

 

Vadim Dorushov, Head of the Energetics, Construction and Ecology Department of Goznak, emphasized that the realized project was unique and complicated. For many Goznak employees the project became a successfully passed professional exam.  

“It would have been much easier to build a data processing center meeting all the requirements on a new site free from constructions, just like the majority of companies do. The projectors and the paper mill managed to implement a data processing center with the modern engineering infrastructure into an existing group of buildings in the heart of Saint Petersburg.   

According to Vadim Dorushov, besides the constructional limitations, the project was accompanied with difficulties caused by the existence of non-uniform grounds. The leading architectural and building institutions were invited to take part in the work; cutting-edge software packages were applied in calculating and projecting the major constructive solutions. 

The management of the Saint Petersburg Paper Mill had laid the foundation for success to a great extent by creating a powerful team of professionals for its realization."

“A lot of suppliers and subcontractors usually participate in projecting a data processing center”, Dmitry Tyunkov says. “As well as more than 50 various spheres connected with the structure, power supply, air conditioning, plumbing, fuel delivery, computer networks…  Tier Certification of Constructed Facility allows to make sure that the construction site has been built in accordance with the planned efficiency, performance and reliability, without errors or mismatches between competencies of different specialists."  

  - Uptime Institute is an organization with a high professional reputation. Its certificates are really a result of serious tests”, explains Nikolay Kobchikov, Head of the Information Technology Division who participated in the certification process directly.

As a result, the experts of the Institute noted that the certification tests had been a success.

The Data Processing Center of the Saint Petersburg Paper Mill is one of the two centers in Saint Petersburg certified by Uptime Institute.
