MOSCOW, April 8, 2020 – Rosstandart Orders approved the first national standards for data centers: GOST R 58811-2020 "Data Centers. Engineering infrastructure. Stages of creation" and GOST R 58812-2020 "Data processing Centers. Engineering infrastructure. Operating model of operation. Specification".

Currently, all over the world, there is a mass introduction of digital technologies in various spheres of life: economy, culture, education, industrial production, services.
Most modern information technologies require data processing centers (DPC), which are objects for hosting computing power and data storage.

"Over the past few years, a whole industry has been formed in Russia related to the design, development, creation and subsequent operation of data centers. As a regulatory and technical framework, data center industry participants focus on related industries and areas. At the same time, data processing centers, as objects of standardization, have certain specifics, and the applied standards of related areas do not always fully meet the needs of the data center industry. Two new standards are initially intended for application within the industry and are designed to eliminate some gaps in its standardization," – said Zaurbek Alekhin, Chairman of the technical Committee "Data processing centers" (TC 120).

"New standards in the field of data centers will increase the reliability and stability of the data center operation. The use of documents will facilitate the introduction of digital technologies, including in industry, and speed up the process of digitalization in General," – said Anton Shalaev, Deputy Head of Rosstandart.

Both standards were prepared by the non-profit organization "Association of data center industry participants" within the framework of the technical committee for standardization 120 "Data centers". TC 120 plans to develop a number of standards for further development of the industry.
