New data centre, Redstone is currently under construction in the Russian city of Krasnokamensk. Redstone will become a new home for clients from China, Russia and around the world. Redstone offers its clients the benefit of a convenient location, cheap electricity, perfect climate (avg. annual temp is 2°C) and accessible water for cooling.
The key feature of Redstone is the power-generation capacity of 50MW (under Phase 1) that will be built on its own off-the-grid generator base providing reliable energy source. Redstone is located at the premises of non-nuclear thermal power plant operating by Rosatom – partner of the project, a State Nuclear Energy Corporation. Telecom network is provided by Rostelecom, the largest digital services provider in Russia.
Redstone location provides good and stable quality of internet connectivity that can handle heavy loads of a data centre of such scale. Proximity to the Chinese border and Manchuria’s airport make Redstone an accessible destination for new equipment deliveries from China and minimize overall logistics costs in general.
Initial project financing comes from Telecor, and active phase of construction will begin in December 2018 after the completion of design work. Phase 1 of Redstone (50MW) will be move-in ready in May of 2019.
