On April 25 NGN Group has launched Star of Bosphorus Data Center – the first commercial, carrier-neutral and totally seismic protected data center in Turkey. Star of Bosphorus offers consulting, cloud, application management, disaster recovery, backup and business continuity, security, data storage and colocation services to a wide range of companies.

CROC’s team, having already completed a number of data center projects around the globe, shared its expertise with NGN in IT-solutions development, conducted a technical audit of the data center building and its equipment with engineering and seismic protection systems.
“Our partner CROC has demonstrated very strong expertise in the project on building this unique data center in aseismic region. Combining CROC's vast experience with NNTC's innovative solutions, we are ready to transfer its expertise to the UAE and take up projects of any scale: from data centers building to targeted projects on data centers' costs reduction and performance maximization", - says Dmitry Doshaniy, Country General Manager at NNTC.
