Situated locally in Derby and Leeds, our data centres are staffed 24x7x365 for maximum support and security. This ensures we have full control over all hardware and data and can act swiftly and efficiently.
Our purpose-built data centres are optimised in every respect for maximum security and efficiency, utilising the latest technologies to prevent data loss and downtime even in the most extreme circumstances.
The data centre is monitored by cctv both externally and internally. All CCTV images are recorded and stored for 3 months.
The building is surrounded by a 8ft perimeter fence. gates are locked outside of normal business hours.
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.
46u high 1500mm wide x 1000mm deep, cable management system and 80% mesh doors. Cabinets are kept locked at all times.
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.
Drip sensors located below floor monitor for any leaks in the system. Cold air is forced underneath raised flooring into the bottom of each server rack, and vacuumed out of the top providing maximum cooling efficiency. The position of each server rack/apparatus is calculated by a dedicated deployment team to further optimise cooling efficiency.
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.
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.
