Data Centres

where the magic happens...

Centro

Our largest facility, hosting Shared, Reseller, Dedicated and legacy Virtual Servers...

Our datacentre operators are a member of The Green Grid industry body, comply with the European Code of Conduct for Datacentre Operators best practice guidelines, and have been externally audited and certified to ISO 9001 (Quality Management), ISO 14001 (Environmental Management) and ISO 27001 (Information Security) standards.

Centro Network

Our Centro network at the Centro facility has been designed from the ground up using enterprise switching and routing equipment.

We run dual, redundant gigabit feeds to every rack and boast 20Gbps of connectivity to LINX, 10Gbps to Virgin Media, along with various other private and public peers including BT, Talktalk and Sky.

Peers include Microsoft, TalkTalk, Pipex, Cogent, Virgin, Claranet, Google, HE, Akamai, the BBC, and hundreds more.

300km DWDM dark fibre is used, spanning 4 UK DCs along with 3 carrier neutral facilities.

We are pleased to provide not only full IPv4, but also IPv6 connectivity at this facility.

Centro Security

Centro Security

Security at the Centro facility consists of 24×7 security and NOC staff being present, high security perimeter fencing.

A state-of-the-art IP CCTV system and access control system form part of the comprehensive security arrangements, including man-traps, interlocked doors, and biometric iris scanners.

Centro Fire Suppression

High-end fire suppression systems are fitted throughout the entire facility.

Making use of FM-200 gas, in the rare event of a fire, this can be extinguished in less than 10 seconds.

FM200 is an odourless, colourless gas and will not cause any harm to equipment housed within the facility.

Centro Power Redundancy

Centro Power Redundancy

Power is a critical component of each facility, and we only choose facilities that can meet power service level agreements and ensure uptime.

The Centro facility is kitted with some of the latest power management equipment including Uninterruptible Power Supplies (UPS) at a massive scale.

Diesel generators are also used in the event of mains failure. The generators will be automatically used in the event of loss of power in the facility and can sustain many hours of power.

Joule House

Our newest facility, hosting Cloud Servers...

We launched our Cloud Server platform in 2014 and chose the brand new Joule House facility. This allowed us the option to once again build a solid, reliable infrastructure from the ground up.

Joule House Switching

All of our interconnected storage devices are connected at a whopping 10Gbps, allowing exemplary data transfer between storage nodes and cloud hypervisors.

We use VDX based switches for this connectivity with several 40Gbps ports also available for expansion and connecting the storage network together.

Joule House Routing

Joule House Routing

Our Joule House routing platform has been built from the ground up. Utilising modern and powerful Brocade routing devices, we can provide gigabits of connectivity to the internet.

With quality transit via IXReach and Talk Internet, this allows us to peer with big players such as Level 3, LINX, Cogent and much more.

We are pleased to provide not only full IPv4, but also IPv6 connectivity at this facility.

Joule House Power Redundancy

Loss of power has no concern at Joule House.

Battery powered UPS systems are present throughout, ensuring ‘brownouts’ do not affect power.

The facility also boasts massive 7.5MVA, N+1 redundant generators, allowing 60+ hours of diesel-fuelled generator power in the event of a power outage or grid failure, which can be live-filled, effectively allowing the site to run indefinitely on generator power.

Joule House Fire Surpression

Joule House Fire Surpression

Very Early Smoke Detection Apparatus (VESDA) is installed in the facility.

These highly sensitive two-stage smoke detectors are linked to the BMS and monitored continually from a network operations centre.

In the unlikely event of a fire, we have environmentally-friendly gas-based or water mist fire suppression systems that quickly extinguish any fire.

Systems are designed to minimise any disruption and ensure that any minor problem remains localised.
