In his presentation, Yuri Gais, IBA Data Center Director, said that a lot of data centers have emerged in Belarus recently, but the IBA Data Center keeps the lead in innovation and the level of automation. He added that the main task of IBA Group is a reliable, safe, and effective operation of its data center by the minimum number of personnel. The company strives to achieve the goal by investing in the automation of engineering, telecommunications, and IT infrastructure management. If the plans come to fruition, only two employees will be able to ensure smooth operation of the data center, provided no emergency situations occur.
