Security and Disaster Recovery
Disaster recovery planning
Our tier three UK based data centre ensures that your data and applications are secure and backed up. We proactively monitor your virtual server to make sure you have enough disk space and memory to operate effectively. In the event of any local problem at your office you can simply relocate to another location with internet access and continue to operate normally.
Data Centre Specifications
Our data centre is directly connected to six different network operators with diversely routed resilient circuits to avoid any possibility of downtime. Resilient power is provided to every individual cabinet and the cabinets are spread across all three electrical phases. Servers are also spread across different cabinets to gain additional power resilience. An N + 2 UPS system (four x UPSs) supports all of the data centre’s equipment for resilience and this is backed up by a regularly tested standby power generator.
The data centre is equipped with a VESDA fire protection system which samples the atmosphere in each rack and monitors for carbon particles which are given off when components heat up towards combustion. If the system detects sufficient particles, the electrical power to that particular rack is switched off, removing the energy source and ensuring that combustion does not take place.
Privacy and security is assured with card swipe entry systems to all restricted areas and CCTV surveillance is continuously operating both inside and outside of the data centre. Public access is strictly forbidden and there are 4 separate secure areas, which need to be accessed before reaching the data centre cabinet room.
Our data centre currently accommodates 120 cabinets with the capacity to quadruple the amount of cabinets as demand continues to grow.
