Security at our datacentres is foremost in our minds. We have extensive CCTV coverage, all of which is monitored by our security staff, digitally recorded and retained for up to 90 days. We have a 24/7 security team on patrol at all times. Building entry is only granted when advance notice of a visit has been confirmed through our formal processes. We utilise anti-tailgating mantrap security doors operated via our proximity access control system to ensure only authorised individuals have acces
Harnessing and maintaining power is at the very core of delivering our service to clients. All of the technology we possess would be rendered ineffectual without a continuous, uninterrupted supply of power. So, we have designed our facilities with this in mind. Each data centre has multiple and separate 11kV feeders that link to distinct substations as part of the local network in order to provide a reliable utility supply.
All of our data centres operate a minimum N+1 configuration for backup generators. To provide continuity, we operate a minimum 2N battery-based UPS system.
We consider every eventuality – alongside fuel supply agreements and routine maintenance programmes we even store enough fuel on-site for a minimum of 48 hours to keep everything up and running.
Heat is an enemy to reliable data storage. It is essential that the data halls are kept at the optimum temperature to ensure the integrity of data. The environment is constantly monitored through an array of temperature and humidity sensors, alerting us to any potential problems before your data or equipment is affected.
We utilise building-wide, multi-zonal fire detection systems with both ionisation and optical detectors in suites, roof cavities and sub-floors. For complete peace of mind we’ve also installed a Highly Sensitive Smoke Detection (HSSD) System, which is able to detect fires before they flare, allowing the best possible opportunity to detect and control the spread of fire before it takes hold.
