Oleg Zolotokrylin, the rector of St. Petersburg State University of Telecommunications named after M.A. Bonch-Bruevich, and the head of the video information and multimedia technology Department of the University Galina Tkachuk visited Kazan IT-Park yesterday.
Guests saw the basic infrastructure of the Technopark and talked about its work. The delegation visited the data center of the IT-Park. Mr. Zolotokrylin admitted that he saw such data centers only overseas. We also have a data center at our university, but this is a small back room in comparison with yours, - the rector said. The Data Center of Kazan IT-Park is subdivided into two data centers: the state sector of 250 sq.m. and the commercial sector of 750 sq.m.
Avtodor project, which works in the territory of the Republic of Tatarstan in the test mode, was presented to the guests in the business incubator; they also heard about a Single portal of public and municipal services, Public Control systems and GLONASS +112.
After the tour, Oleg Zolotokrylin met with the Director of API Technopark in high-tech IT-Park Dinar Nasyrovym.
Mr. Zolotokrylin noted that it would be very good for the students of the St. Petersburg University to see the work of the IT-park and offered to send them to practice in Kazan. The director of the industrial park supported this idea. Dinar Nasyrov stressed the importance of the bilateral exchange. Our scientists could advise you on GLONASS system, for example - agreed Zolotokrylin.
The vice-rector also inquired about the possibility of St. Petersburg University students’ participation in the contest for the status of business incubator resident. Dinar Nasyrov explained that the selection is carried out every quarter and everyone can take part in it having a project in information technology.
