Russia’s largest exchange group, Moscow Exchange (MoEx), has taken the next step in migrating its infrastructure to a new data center.

DataSpace1 became a disaster recovery (DR) site for the Exchange’s trading and clearing platforms on 25 July, after successful public testing on the 23rd.

The plan is for DataSpace1 to be MoEx’s primary site this November, with the currently-in-use M1 data center becoming the disaster recovery site. Previously, the Kislovsky data center was used for disaster recovery.

DataSpace1 was the first commercial data centre in Russia and continental Europe to have successfully completed the full cycle of Tier III certification.
