Companies that implement large IT projects with a set of individual requirements are those that require creating private  cloud environments the most. The service will be in demand by companies from financial sector, retail, telecom, production sector and the media – those that introduce digital platforms and services into their infrastructure to optimize internal processes and increase the efficiency of interaction with customers. The service is relevant for companies that are restricted in use of public clouds due to internal security policies.
Within every cloud project, company is supplied with IT equipment that runs an individual cloud allocated solely for client. Such approach helps accomplish a higher level of project customization, fulfillment of specific requirements and help save on IT expenditures. Banks, for example, will be able to reduce IT costs and fulfill specific requirements associated with bank secrecy and personal data.
Сompanies have the opportunity to engage Avantage data center services for creating hybrid  cloud environments that involve simultaneous use of both private clouds and public ones. At the same time, a private cloud can be obtained as a service from the provider or installed on client’s own equipment located in the data center. Retail companies, for example, will be able to process all incoming orders during peak sales through increased load distribution within such hybrid schemes.
“Avantage is a high-tech platform that helps deploy large-scale IT projects. High reliability combined with advanced technological solutions make the stage an intuitively attractive solution both for Russian and foreign players on the market. On its basis a business, for example, can implement integrated digital platforms that require large capacities. In the near future, we will be carrying a project of such type. A private cloud is being created in the data center to host the Segezha Group digital management platform,” says Oleg Motovilov, director of the #CloudMTS cloud provider.
Transferring service functions to the provider compared to using your own IT equipment can help save up to 25% per month on average on production costs. The provider will ensure the implementation, operation and maintenance of customer infrastructure in the cloud as well as help with equipment. Companies will determine an acceptable level of application administration in the private cloud. They can either do it by themselves or outsource it to the provider. The cost of services will be calculated based on needs for computing power and project specifications. Fill in the request form on #CloudMTS website to to get the chance to use the service.

· Data center high reliability is confirmed by Uptime Institute, an independent international organization , a recognized expert on certification of data centers around the world. Currently Avantage has passed two Tier III certifications that confirm its high level of fault tolerance. There are around five data centers in Russia that have a similar level of asserted reliability by the Uptime Institute.
· The first Tier Certification of Design Documents certificate confirms that engineering and architectural solutions are designed to meet the criteria of long-term operational stability and uninterrupted operation. The second Tier Certification of Constructed Facility certificate ensures that the data center is built in accordance with the project meaning that a series of tests on the fail-safe operation of engineering systems by an independent commission has been carried out and the inherent performance and reliability have been confirmed.
· Avantage has two geographically dispersed optical cables at its disposal, a network connectivity with the largest Moscow traffic exchange nodes thus providing customers with the ability to connect to any telecom operator. The data center has two power inputs with a total capacity of 20 MWth. Independent power supply is organized by using fourteen diesel-rotor uninterruptible power supplies. The fuel supply provides 24 hours of battery life when the data center is fully loaded. The principle of Free Cooling is used for cooling , with referred system of isolated cold corridors and automatic gas fire extinguishers.
 Private cloud (private cloud) is a cloud infrastructure designed for exclusive use by the organization.
 A hybrid cloud is a combination of both private and public clouds.
 Uptime Institute is a recognized international certification organization that has developed its own standard for data center reliability. It incorporates the best world experience in building and operating data centers. Uptime Institute standards, first of all, consider the interests of corporate clients and are focused on protecting investments in the construction of data centers. Uptime Institute standards allow on early stages, such as design, to carry out necessary requirements for the reliability and safety of the future data center so to create optimal conditions for its operation.
