Data Centre

Power Supply and Backup

Power Supply

Each rack has 2 independent power feeds, fed from 2 diverse connections to the national grid.

Should one or both of these feeds fail 4 x 300kVA Riello UPS (N+1) battery backup systems will cover immediate power requirements. All power to the cabinets is supplied via the UPS to maintain clean supply to the servers.

If mains power is not restored within 10 seconds 3 x N+1 diesel powered generators will start providing full continuous power to the data centre.

Spare fuel for the generators is stored on-site and contracts are in place with fuel companies to deliver continuous emergency fuel for a virtually unlimited amount of time.

Fire Suppression

Fire Suppression

Fire protection is provided by the FM200 Fire Suppression System which fills the sealed data centre with gas to extinguish any fire quickly without the use of water and without damage to any equipment.

Climate Control

Climate Control

The data centre is fully climate controlled with N+1 Stultz DX Cybercool Air Conditioning Systems. The system monitors and controls the temperature and humidity levels.

Drip sensors located below floor monitor for any leaks in the system. Cold air is forced underneath raised flooring into the bottom of each server rack, and vacuumed out of the top providing maximum cooling efficiency. The position of each server rack/apparatus is calculated by a dedicated deployment team to further optimise cooling efficiency.

Server Cabinets

Dell Server Cabinets

46u high 1500mm wide x 1000mm deep, cable management system and 80% mesh doors. Cabinets are kept locked at all times.

Security

CCTV

The data centre is monitored by cctv both externally and internally. All CCTV images are recorded and stored for 3 months.

Secure Fence

The building is surrounded by a 8ft perimeter fence. gates are locked outside of normal business hours.

Secure Fob Access

There are two locking doors to go through for access to each of the separate data halls within DC2. These are locked and can only be opened using Secure Fobs which are only held by named staff.

Servers

dell We use only Dell servers in our web hosting platform, utilising state-of-the-art technology.

The platform is designed in such a way that if any server fails another server automatically and without delay takes over that server's workload. For example, if one of our mail servers breaks down another server automatically comes online, with all the correct configuration, and takes over the work of the failed server. During this period no email is lost.

Data is stored in two large network disk arrays. Data is automatically synchronised between the arrays so that in the event of an array failing the remaining array continues to serve data to the servers with no downtime.

100% Cisco Gigabit Network

cisco The network operates on industry leading network equipment from Cisco Systems, all switches and routers are developed by Cisco. The network is based on gigabit technology which runs at a speed of 1000 Mb per second, most web hosting networks are limited to 100 Mb per second.

Our network also utilise's 100% CAT6 network cable, CAT6 cable contains four pairs of copper wire and unlike CAT5, utilise's all four pairs. CAT6 supports Gigabit (1000 Mbps) Ethernet and supports communications at more than twice the speed of CAT5e, the other popular standard for Gigabit Ethernet cabling

 

Redhat Enterprise Linux Platform

redhat Redhat is the leading provider of Linux open source software, for many years now Redhat Linux has been the number one choice for web hosting companies. Not just because of Redhats amazing scalability but also because of its track record as the most stable operating system available in the market today.

Our systems utilise the latest Redhat server technology to allow our servers to be continually up to date with Redhat system & security patches.

le release of Redhat Linux available and the only version that stays totally up to date with security patches.

 

Connectivity

The data centre operates a multi-homed network utilising BGP4 technology, simply put it has multiple connections to the Internet with different backbone providers, should any connection fail other connections automatically take all the traffic. Not only does this mean that we are very unlikely to lose connectivity to the Internet but it also means that traffic moving to and from our network can choose from a range of paths to get to its final destination, this means that we have been able to configure the network to always take the fastest paths.

 

Content Management Systems

allow you to separate the design of a site from the management of the content. This means that, once the site is set up, you or anyone you designate can add and edit content using simple onscreen editors.
