IXcellerate is a data center project founded by Guy Willner, founder and former CEO of IXEurope and former president Europe for Equinix Inc., and Cliff Gauntlett, former senior vice president of Golden Telecom. The project seeks to build and operate a 6,200-sq-m carrier-neutral data center in Moscow on a 15,000-sq-m campus. The construction process has three phases, with the first 1000-sq-m scheduled to be operational in the fourth quarter of this year.

Macomnet says the dark fibers will provide IXcellerate with the capacity and flexibility to accommodate future growth, as well as improve reliability and performance.
