  1. 1. Linxdatacenter became a leader among the suppliers of cloud technology through Cisco solutions Success Story © 2013 Cisco, logotype Cisco, Cisco Systems and logotype Cisco Systems are registered trademarks of Cisco Systems, Inc. in the USA and some other countries. All other trademarks referred to in this document are the property of the relevant owners. The LinxCloud (laaS) platform was developed in Linxdatacenter, the Data Processing Center of Saint Petersburg Key moments of Linxdatacenter Linxdatacenter, as an international supplier of DPC solutions, is a partner of the largest national and international corporations for whom the primary focus is security of solutions, optimization of costs and flexibility of a supplier with regard to the modification of the project as a result of the growth or closing up of the business or traffic. The Head office of Linxdatacenter is located in Amsterdam; four of its own Tier 3 data-centers are located in Moscow, Saint Petersburg, Tallinn and Warsaw. In 2013, Linx Group became a prestigious RusPrix Award prize-winner in the category of the “best results achieved by a Dutch company in the Russian market”. In 2011, the Group received the DatacenterDynamics Datacenter Leaders Award in the category of the “Innovation in the Mega- Data center” for opening high-tech Data Processing Center in Saint Petersburg. Customer: Linxdatacenter Industry: Telecommunications, Data Processing Centers Number of Employees: 170 employees Significance of the implemented project: • Expanding the spectrum of company services by using cloud technologies; • Optimizing costs (temporary and material) on the development and management of IT-equipment for end users; • Creating the potential of implementing projects by using cloud solutions and hybrid clouds; • Development of mobile cloud solutions for the implementation of urgent projects; • Expanding the capabilities for solving customers' objectives in the areas of processing, storing and transferring the data; • Supporting the image of the innovative company on the international data- center market. All DPCs of Linxdatacenter are designed in accordance with international standards, integrated in a unified network and reserved by connection ports, equipped with uninterruptable energy supply and air conditioning systems as well as meeting the most rigorous requirements of reliability and security of data transfer. Linxdatacenter provides multilateral support to customers and is always looking for new solutions, improving the efficiency of data centers and expanding the range of services. The company followed these principles when, in the fall of 2013, it developed LinxCloud platform in the St. Petersburg Linxdatacenter DPC based on Cisco solutions, NetApp and VMware. LinxCloud (laaS) platform in St. Petersburg is similar to the solution installed one year earlier in Linxdatacenter DPC in Warsaw. In terms of the technology, the Warsaw

Linxdatacenter became a leader among the suppliers of cloud technology through Cisco solutions platform has been recognized as one of the most advanced DPCs in Central and Eastern Europe. Implementation of the project and Outcomes LinxCloud platform (laaS) is based on the FlexPod platform which consists of blade baskets of Cisco UCS, Cisco Nexus 5000 switches, Cisco Nexus 1000v virtual switch and Cisco UCS Director software for operating the equipment. FlexPod also consists of NetApp data storage system and VMware vCloud virtualization applications. Such package of equipment fully meets business-requirements of Linxdatacenter customers and provides the company with a few important competitive advantages. First of all, ready-to-use and tested in advance FlexPod equipment has enabled us to efficiently launch the cloud platform and start the provision of new commercial services in the shortest time possible. Secondly, the presence of authorized partner-integrators of Cisco in Russia and Europe, significantly simplified the installation and operation of the equipment: BCC and Comtegra, who have experience and expertise in FlexPod, successfully carried out the installation work as part of the project, and currently are providing high quality support in 24x7 mode. Thirdly, the financing of the project according to the leasing schedule via Cisco Capital, gave Linxdatacenter an advantage of investing into the project. Because the model for presenting cloud services entails that the The uniqueness of LinxCloud (laaS) in the Data Processing Center (DPC) in Saint Petersburg is supported by the fact that the solution is based on a highly reliable multi-user platform from world leaders – Cisco, NetApp and VMware. Such integration of IT-Technologies with its own data processing centers of Linxdatacenter and the network of Linxtelecom allows our clients to create hybrid and private clouds for processing, storing and transferring data by resolving the issues of continuity and recovery of business, remote storage of data, development of virtual offices and provision of services by subscription. At the same time, the operation of all individual systems designed and built by us has the highest indicators of accessibility. This makes the end users confident that they will receive uninterrupted services of outsourced IT infrastructure. Currently FlexPod complex has been fully developed and implemented in the commercial operations of our Data Processing Center in Saint Petersburg. Moreover, the first large client – company Play (Yota) has been migrated into the cloud and a few more projects are at the stage of preparatory works. We would like to point out that, under this project, an additional feature has been added to the collaboration with Cisco. This is a bonus in the form of a two-day training in FlexPod in the Moscow training center. This training significantly helped us as clients during the preparation and launching of the complex in the Data Processing Center. Arno Coster, Chief Operating Officer of Linxdatacenter provider receives monthly payments from service recipients, it is more beneficial to incur operational costs than capital costs on purchasing the equipment. Finally, the FlexPod solution gives a wide range of scaling options in cases when the number of cloud customers is increasing: one platform is scaled with due regard to various loads. Initially, a basic configuration of FlexPod was installed in Linxdatacenter DPC in St. Petersburg (two units of each component – blade-baskets and

Linxdatacenter became a leader among the suppliers of cloud technology through Cisco solutions switches) while the platform is scaled with minimum efforts by adding additional blade servers and disc enclosures. Similar basic configuration of the FlexPod platform is in operation in Linxdatacenter DPC in Warsaw. During its one year operation, it has gained a reputation of a reliable solution with future: the equipment worked without interruptions and allowed to quickly resolve problems related to the tech support of users. Additionionally, Linxdatacenter received positive feedback from the customers about stability of cloud services. Linxdatacenter started to provide Infrastructure as a Service (laaS) based on the FlexPod platform installed in St. Petersburg, i.e. Linxdatacenter is offering IT infrastructure based on the concept of cloud computing. FlexPod capabilities allow to comply with the requirements of the widest range of customers: for basic services laaS Linxdatacenter uses highly standardized and tested solution. At the same time, while performing joint work on an individual project of the customer, the company can provide flexible options and expanded functionality. The demonstrative example of the fact that FlexPod offers maximum flexibility in the provision of cloud services became the project of the creation of a hybrid cloud for company Play (Yota). This is an online service offering legal media content by subscription. In the framework of this project, Linxdatacenter provides services of virtual infrastructure laaS, services of switching networks on the basis of Cisco Nexus, services of edge routers on the basis of Cisco ASR, as well as expanded technical support of Remote & Smart Hands. Cisco does its best to ensure that our customers receive maximum advantages by using cloud technologies. Therefore, we offer comprehensive FlexPod solution based on which modern data processing cloud centers can be built. FlexPod is a tested and converged computing platform. By using FlexPod, risks associated with the integration of any IT solution can be minimized. The cost to customers is also minimized by quick deploy. At the same time, the platform can be easily scaled considering the demands of various loads and the process of control does not become complicated as computing resources grow.
