Azerbaijan launches DATA-center of national content resources
Azerbaijan, Baku, Oct. 10 / Trend H.Valiyev /
The Delta Telecom Company has completed work on the establishment of DATA-center, Director of the Delta Telecom Rahid Alakbarli told Trend .
The center aims to transfer the national content from abroad to Azerbaijan. These are the Web-sites and entertainment portals, containing songs, video and photo content in the Azerbaijani language, Alakbarli added.
In the future, the volume of incoming international traffic in Azerbaijan would be substantially reduced due to the placement of Internet resources in the DATA-center and the volume of outgoing traffic will increase.
Placing national content resources in the Azerbaijani territory will reduce the cost of the primary provider to 90 percent because in this case the country will not pay to transit countries.
The DATA-center will give reference to national Internet resources registered in the international domain zones and in the zone domain az.
Alakbarli said that the DATA-center will play a role in reducing the cost and in some cases - the abolition of fees for registration of domains, which also play an important role in the development of the Azerbaijani-content resources.
Regarding the security, this issue will have a particular importance. Recently, the hackers' attacks in the domain zone .az have increased. The Delta Telecom's specialists intend to make sufficient efforts to organize the smooth functioning of the national domain zone.
At present, nearly 8, 700 Internet resources have been registered in the national domain zone.
