Our hosting services allow clients to get on with their business safe in the
knowledge that infrastructure issues that frequently impact IT services and
availability are in safe hands.
Our Data Centre is situated on a major multi-carrier fibre route providing us with multi-carrier bandwidth - allowing choice, control and resilience from best-of-breed Carriers. To meet the developing requirements of our clients, we continue to enhance our infrastructure services and now provide Multi-homed Bandwidth, DNS hosting, Managed Firewall Solutions and 24 x 7 x 365 system monitoring.
Every system within the data centre is monitored and controlled from the on-site control room and maintained 24 x 7 x 365.
Access to our Data Centre is strictly controlled, with manned security on-site 24/7. All access points in the data centre are monitored by dedicated internal security, utilizing individual card swipes, biometric scanners and colour CCTV. Security coverage spans from the heart of the facility to the outer compound.
All main switchgear can support 133% of maximum load in a fully operational
data centre. Should mains supply fail at any time, a series of generators
seamlessly kick-in to power all hosted equipment supported by site-wide UPS
system. Generators run for 36 hours with onsite fuel loads and are
refuelable in use.
There is a three stage fire detection, utilising aspiration first stage for
zoned HVAC control to maximise the efficiency of the double knock
addressable analogue system. A nitrogen charged 'cold-steam' independently
zoned fire suppression system is discharged as a final stage.
The air conditioning system is configured with 133% built-in redundancy. Effectively, only 75% of the air conditioning units are required to support the data centre at maximum occupancy.
