Mit seiner Dachmarke auf der Höhe von 338,8 Metern steht die Mercury-City wieder an der Spitze. The Shard, ein 308 Meter hohes, Obelisken-förmiges symbolträchtiges Glasgebäude des italienischen Stararchitekten Renzo Piano in London trug den Titel des höchsten Gebäudes kürzlich in die englische Hauptstadt. Davor war die Moskauer Bevölkerung stolz darauf, das höchste Gebäude Europas in der Stadt zu haben: Die 301,6 Meter hohen Zwillingstürme der Capital-City waren nicht nur Europas höchstes Gebäude, sondern boten auch die höchsten Wohnräume in Europa. Auch dieser Titel wurde inzwischen weitergegeben. Die Wohnungen in der Spitze der Mercury-City haben diese Leistung nun um deutliche 40 Meter übertroffen. Sowohl die höchsten Türme Europas in Moskau, die Capital-City, als auch die Spitze der Mercury-City wurden von dem niederländischen Star-Architekten Erick van Egeraat entworfen. Der Bau der Mercury-City begann 2008 und soll bis 2013 fertiggestellt sein.

Das Design der Mercury-City stammt von dem amerikanischen Architekten Frank Williams, der im Februar 2010 starb, bevor das Projekt abgeschlossen wurde. Die Mercury-City wird die Capital-City um fast 40 Meter überragen. Der Turm ist Teil des internationalen Geschäftsviertels der Moskauer Innenstadt am östlichen Ufer der Moskwa, 5 Kilometer vom Kreml entfernt. Neben dem von Erick van Egeraat gestalteten Wohnviertel werden auch Büros, Garagen, Geschäfte und Restaurants vorzufinden sein.

When shopping for a new data processing platform for IoT solutions, many development teams want to be able to test-drive options before making a choice. Yet when evaluating an IoT solution, it’s simply not feasible to do so at scale with physical devices.

When dealing with multiple application or transport protocols, you would be...

IoT is at the core or many Digital Transformation initiatives with the goal of re-inventing a company's business model. We all agree that collecting relevant IoT data will result in massive amounts of data needing to be stored.

And with the lack of IoT history, traditional methods of IT and infrastructure planning based on the past do not app...
