Linxdatacenter passed state accreditation by the Digital Development Ministry of the Russian Federation as an IT company. New status will enable the company to operate efficiently in the market of cloud solutions for the state sector.
The accreditation procedure was initiated taking into account the company’s plans to enter a new cloud market segment: the state sector. The focus on this sector is related to rapidly growing needs of the state institutions in digitalization, import substitution of IT products and fulfilment of regulators’ requirements.
“The state sector needs a selection of readymade IT solutions from providers with expertise in complex projects, geographical distribution, high level of SLA and CSI. The level of technological and business competencies of Linxdatacenter allows us to create an adequate offer of services and products for the B2G market,” comments Olga Sokolova, General Director Linxdatacenter.
Within the scope of Linxdatacenter’s development strategy, the state sector is split into two major areas: state institutions (administrations etc) and companies with the state capital.
The preliminary set of solutions will include a standard automated workplace of a government official, and a platform certified for hosting geoinformation systems (GIS) based on the local software.
Development of cloud solutions for the state sector will be based on the options of multiple scaling of computing resources on the LinxCloud platform and on partnerships with hyperscalers whose profile meets the requirements of state-owned companies.
It is also planned to develop a complex Colocation + Cloud Services proposal, which will become the basis for unique B2G industry hi-tech products, for example “smart city” solutions.

The customer faced a technical issue with a persistent BGP session flag with Linxdatacenter hardware. We examined the problem and found out that one of customer’s hosts was under a DDoS attack.
Because of the distributed nature of the attack, traffic couldn’t be filtered effectively, and disconnecting the host from the external network wasn’t an option. The attack stopped after changes in the server configuration, but resumed the day after. A 5.5 Gbps attack overloaded the junctions with internet providers, affecting other Linx Cloud users. To mitigate the effects of the attack, we employed a dedicated DDoS protection service.
To ensure the continuous availability of resources hosted in Linx Cloud, we rerouted all the customer’s traffic through StormWall Anti-DDoS system. The attack was stopped within half an hour. To prevent future cyberattacks, we organized all connections to the customer’s resources through the StormWall network.
