Our Coventry datacentre utilises the latest innovative green evaporative cooling system. So called “ecocoolers” are up to 80% more efficient than a traditional compressor based computer room air conditioners (CRACs).
We fully understand how stressful downtime can be and that's why we have invested heavily on power systems within our datacentre. We utilise n+1 144kw APC Symmetra PX systems with integrated power distribution enabling us to constantly monitor the power supply to each rack.
We utilise 42U racks organised in a hot/cold aisle layout with meshed front and rear doors to maximise airflow. Each rack is powered by 2 x 16A commando sockets fed from separate power distribution units. Lighting to the area is provided by LED ceiling lights with motion detection timers.
Our site is served by multiple carriers including BT, KCOM, Virgin Media and Level 3 all of whom are able to offer 10Gb/s connections onsite. In addition to this we are able to offer our own high speed blend of IP transit onsite our upstream carriers include NTT, Level 3 as well as various peering agreements in place at the London Internet Exchange (LINX).
We know how critical data is to your business which is why we take security very seriously. Our site is protected by multi-layered physical security and all access into and out of the building is monitored by a visual human check and proximity access tags. Additionally all areas of the datacentre both inside and out are monitored by video surveillance monitored 24/7/365 and digitally recorded.
By utilising the latest technology evaporative cooling system and transformer less UPS our Midlands datacentre achieves a PuE or power usage efficiency of just 1.19. This means that for every 1MW of IT load only 1.19MW of power is required to power these systems. This makes our facility one of the most energy efficient in the UK thus reducing our environmental impact and ultimately minimising our running costs, savings which are passed onto our customers.
