1994-1996 - preparatory period for the formation of the telecommunication infrastructure of the IO RAS;

1997 - the official creation of the Information Technology Department, the creation of a data transmission node and the connection of fiber-optic communication lines through the UMOS backbone to the Russian Space Scientific Internet (RSSI) and NASA-Internet;

1997 - creation of an official website;

1999 - 2005 - development of a new version of the official website, and the formation of a WEB-design group, head of the group is A. Metalnikov (senior researcher, PhD);

2001 - the group of designers-developers of electronic systems for operational oceanology was created, the executive officer - chief specialist V. Soloviev;

2003 - created an electronic repository of research data on oceanology – OceanDB;

2006 - completed the creation of a complex for storing research data on oceanology based on a DBMS ORACLE;

2006 - a coastal underwater observatory was created as a means of environmental monitoring of the water column and the seabed of the coastal water area. The measuring complex is installed on the pier in Golubaya Bay of the Southern Branch of the IO RAS. To implement the project, a high-speed fiber-optic backbone network of the South Branch was designed and built, which is the basic infrastructure for ensuring its operation, connecting the directorate building, the Department of Coastal Research of the South Branch of the IO RAS, a hangar and a pier with a hub installed on it for connecting measuring complexes;

2007 - the first results were obtained under the ESIMO project carried out under the leadership of VNIIGMI - MCD of Roshydromet;

2008 -2009 - modernization of the telephone distribution network of the Institute was carried out and the analog ATS was replaced by a modern digital PBX NEC2000IPS, integrated into the telecommunications network of the Institute, which ensures the use of data transmission channels based on PRI (E1) and VoIP;

2012 - the ESIMO-RAS Center was put into operation, formed from a complex of high-performance servers and data storage systems, located in the server rooms of the Information Technology Department; The ESIMO - RAS Center is designed to solve the problems of providing operational information about the state of the World Ocean. Within the framework of this project, geographically distributed information subsystems and complexes, databases and GIS were created, which include the work of a large team of scientists and engineers, which allows accumulating data, both in significant sea areas and over extended periods of research;

In 2016, a failover cluster was created and the maximum possible virtualization of the IO RAS data center was carried out based on the technical possibility of server compatibility for processor support of the VMware ESXi software product in tandem with the VMware / vSphere virtual infrastructure backup tool - Veeam Backup and Replication. As a result, the following advantages were achieved: the flexibility of the IT infrastructure of the data center increased, the reliability increased, the high availability of servers was ensured, the savings in hardware were achieved, the network storages were assembled on new media with a total capacity of 60 TB. At the beginning of 2017, 20 virtual resources were deployed as part of an ESXi cluster and 20 on OpenVZ;

In March 2017, the Editorial office of the scientific journal "Oceanological Research" was created, Editor-in-Chief, DSc (Physical and Mathematical Sciences), Professor A. Kostyanoy, Managing Editor S. Sviridov;
