Rostelecom is Russia's largest national telecommunications operator, with presence in all Russian regions. In 2011, the organization launched a project to develop a national cloud computing platform. In the following video from Uptime Institute, Rostelecom's Data Center Project Manager Alexander Martynyuk discusses how his organization is meeting priorities, deadlines and budget on this complex project.

Rostelecom started building its main data center in Moscow, which will become the largest in Russia, around 37 megawatts and 40,000 square meters. The organization will build smaller, 3 MW data centers in regional locations. The success of any data center buildout is defined by how efficient the collaboration is between various project teams, notes Uptime Institute.
