For the protection of our clients, all our datacentres are UK based. Not only does this ensure that you are storing your data in a politically stable country but it also provides you with the fastest access to your data as you don't have to cross over the Atlantic Ocean or into Europe, which could prove to be a slow process. Additionally, you are protected by UK and Euqopean data transportation laws. This often prevents the transfer of sensitive data between countries without government approval first.
Unlike the majority of our competitor's, we own and operate our own network of backup servers. This means greater control, better security and peace of mind for our clients. From the moment your encrypted data enters into the internet, our facilities take over and handle the data management and routing for you.
The servers themselves are housed in multi-million pound purpose built datacentres within the UK, They provide great levels of protection, which include fire protection, power stabilisers, full air-conditioning and authorised security on entry. Our datacentre locations across the UK are heavily protected against infiltration, fire and power outage. This is an environment where access is restricted to the welcome and the invited, 24 hours a day and 7 days a week. That's why so many organisations trust us with their mission critical infrastructure.
Our Datacentre sites have a minimum of 2 diverse routes entering our data centres at either end of the facility; the cables are routed securely to ODFs located in the frame rooms. All cabling within the facility is controlled by the datacentre, whereby carrier feeds are diverse and secure. Bandwidth is exclusively provided by Level (3), along with AboveNet, BT, ClaraNet, Global Crossing and Easynet to name a select few.
Sites are carefully selected with UPS (uninterruptible Power Supplies) and stand-by generation systems, raised floors, cable management and air conditioning to ensure a resillient location for our important infrastructure equipment. N=1 power is filter-fed to each building to prevent surging, supplied at 230V AC for computer systems and 48V DC in telecoms suites. UPS delivery is backed up with high capacity power generators with at least 48 hours worth of fuel; ample to survive disaster scenarios.
