Russia-based telecommunications provider MegaFon has established a new Tier 3 data centre, in the city of Samara, Russia.

MegaFon claims that the new data centre is the largest facility in Russia and will be backbone of the future of national data centres network.

The Samara data centre is built on a 74,400sqft of space and marks completion of the company’s $30m project launched two years ago.
