At the end of this year, a research and production complex “Cisco System Solutions” will be put in operation in the Russian city of Zelenograd.

As Moscow State Construction Supervision Committee (Mosgosstroynadzor) reported on Friday, the facility’s commissioning is scheduled for the IV quarter of 2018. The head of the committee, Oleg Antosenko, has stressed that the matter concerns one of Russia’s largest data centers, where information will be stored and processed. In addition to the construction of a data center, the project provides for the building of administrative and office premises.

The data center will be located on the premises of Moscow Technopolis in the Russian city of Zelenograd. The developer has already obtained a statement of compliance with technical requirements and project documentation.

As a reference, the special economic zone Moscow Technopolis is considered to be a driver of the new industrial Moscow. The purpose of the SEZ is the development of the city's innovative ecosystem by providing the most favorable conditions for Russian and foreign high-tech enterprises. The five SEZ sites are the key points of the ecosystem, designed to localize the production, scientific and technical research of resident companies.
