INLINE Technologies announced in September, 2010 project completion on creation of network infrastructure for the second commercial center of data processing (CDP) of the DataLine company which is also entering into ITG holding (INLINE Technologies Group).

Network infrastructure is constructed on the equipment of Juniper Networks company.

Creation of infrastructure of DPC, located on Korovinskoye Highway, 41, – the second project executed by INLINE Technologies for DataLine company. The first – creation of information and communication infrastructure – INLINE Technologies implemented for data center on Borovaya St., 7.

Network infrastructure of DPC on Korovinsky is based on two-level hierarchical topology.

The top level of network hierarchy – the core module – is formed by pair of mutually reserving modular Juniper MX480 routers. Their connection to the trunk is executed through two points – one line provides connection to MMTC-9 node, another – directly to a node in DPC on Borovoy. For fault tolerance the specified lines are named on different MX480 routers.

The bottom level of hierarchy is the module of access which is created by the stack of the Juniper switches of EX4200 series working on technology of the virtual chassis – all switches are united in the uniform logic device. The fault tolerance of connection of the virtual EX4200 chassis to routers of a core is reached by duplication of connections.

The DPC on Korovinsky is connected to MPLS network of the DataLine company created on Cisco equipment. Thus, integration of technologies and the solutions Cisco and Juniper allows to speak about creation in DataLine company of multivendor network infrastructure.

Official opening of the second data center of DataLine company (Moscow, Korovinskoye Highway, 41) took place at the end of June, 2010.
