The ranking was released as a part of the Data Centers 2022 survey. Placement of colocation providers in the ranking was determined by physical parameters: DC area and number of racks. As data center construction is very investment-consuming, infrastructure of a data center is one of the key reliability factors for the service provider.
According to the analysts’ forecast, even in a most pessimistic scenario the Russian commercial DC market will continue to develop at a 10-15% growth rate, as the demand for colocation services remains steadily high. Financial results of Linxdatacenter confirm these expectations: the company’s turnover grew by 6% in the first quarter of 2022, and even more considerable increase is anticipated in the third quarter.
“Our goal is to satisfy customers’ demand as much as possible and provide them with necessary infrastructure of the worldwide reliability grade. To achieve that, Linxdatacenter shall continue developing its data centers and expand its share in the cloud services’ segment,” notes Andrey Perekrest, General Director of Linxdatacenter.

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.
