Cat Financial is supporting the contract, and Zeppelin will provide ongoing maintenance and service to help deliver optimum performance and value over the lifetime of the installation.
“The ecosystem of IXcellerate data centers, uniting cloud, network and IT infrastructures, is built and developed to satisfy the needs for storing and processing large volumes of data,” said Konstantin Borman, managing director of IXcellerate. “Zeppelin and Caterpillar have delivered a robust standby power solution with built-in flexibility to grow our business, and we will rely on their expertise as we continue to expand and upgrade our infrastructure.”
IXcellerate’s year-over-year revenues increased by nearly 30% in 2019, and the company’s growth rates are 50% higher than the Russian data center market average due to several major hypercloud deals signed during the year.
Cat® power solutions help data centers meet uptime commitments at hundreds of facilities around the world. Caterpillar’s portfolio includes efficient generator sets with high power densities integrated with automatic transfer switches (ATS) and switchgear specifically customized for continuous, standby, and temporary power applications at data centers.
“The market for data center services in Russia has grown immensely, and IXcellerate has quickly risen to a strong position through the quality and reliability of their offerings,” said Bart Myers, general manager, Caterpillar Large Electric Power. “We look forward to providing IXcellerate with the additional power systems support that will further enhance the company’s capabilities.”
