Our data centres
Multiple data centres
We have multiple data centre facilities and are able to provide resilient web hosting over dual sites.
With secure hosting facilities and full data mirroring between sites, we can offer our customers a managed hosting solution with no single point of failure. Gateway routers are configured for automated fail-over, so if internet access via one becomes unavailable, a second gateway will take over providing continuity of service.
Our data centres have a 2mw power supply per floor, backed up by dedicated UPS systems plus two further diverse mains supplies with circuit breaker protection. This provides at least 1kw secure power per square metre plus an onsite generator that can deal with total data centre load whilst recharging the UPS. Data centres are designed with scalable power for future expansion
Our data centres are protected by multi-layer security control systems including biometric palm readers, 24 x 7 closed-circuit video and alarm monitoring and electronic access control entry. Security personnel are present 24 hours a day.
Each rack is equipped with remotely operated power supplies as well as console servers and IP enabled KVM systems to allow access from an off-site location.
Our network environmental control
The environment at our hosting facilities is fully controlled with a variety of leak detection, fire and smoke detection and suppressant systems.
We continuously monitor the facilities to detect any changes in temperature and humidity as well as fire and smoke, server rooms are fully air-conditioned maintaining temperatures at 21°C ± 3°C and humidity at 50% ± 10%.
Irrespective of the data centre facility, our servers are stored in controlled environments to provide guaranteed availability for your online business.
