The data center was built from scratch in the town of Lytkarino near Moscow, nine kilometers from the capital. Several blocks with a total area of more than 1 hectare were built on a 3-hectare plot. Sixteen server rooms were allocated in Avantage for IT-equipment. Each room can house 140 server cabinets. In addition to the machine block, the data center includes refrigeration and energy centers, as well as an administrative and amenities building.

Pilkington Suncool 70/40 Pro T architectural solar control glass was used for the project. Its distinguishing features are maximum transparency and neutrality. Due to its high selectivity and excellent thermal protection, it helps to reduce the cost of air conditioning and space heating, which is especially important for industrial-type commercial buildings.
