UK Datacentre

Our cutting edge technology puts you in front of the competition

  • Ultimate Climate Control

    The data centre is fully climate controlled with N+1 Stultz DX Cybercool Air Conditioning Systems. The system monitors and controls the temperature and humidity levels.

  • Advanced Fire Suppression

    Fire protection is provided by the FM200 Fire Suppression System which fills the sealed data centre with gas to extinguish any fire quickly without the use of water and without damage to any equipment.

  • Sophisticated Security Systems

    There are two locking doors to go through for access to each of the separate data halls within DC2. These are locked and can only be opened using Secure Fobs which are only held by named staff.

Power Supply and Backup

Each rack has two independent power feeds, fed from two diverse connections to the national grid. Should one or both of these feeds fail 4 x 300kVA Riello UPS (N+1) battery backup systems will cover immediate power requirements. All power to the cabinets is supplied via the UPS to maintain clean supply to the servers.

If mains power is not restored within 10 seconds 3 x N+1 diesel powered generators will start providing full continuous power to the data centre.
Spare fuel for the generators is stored on-site and contracts are in place with fuel companies to deliver continuous emergency fuel for a virtually unlimited amount of time.

Connectivity

We operate a multi-homed network utilising BGP4 technology. Put simply, we have multiple connections to the Internet with different backbone providers; should any connection fail our other connections automatically take all the traffic. Not only does this mean that we are extremely unlikely to lose connectivity to the Internet, but it also means that traffic moving to and from our network can choose from a range of paths to get to its final destination. This means that we have been able to configure the network always to take the fastest paths.
