Power Backup

Our campus is connected directly to the national grid via two 11kV connections, each fed from separate sub-stations. Our north datacentre uses two independent critical power distribution systems per datafloor. Our south datacentre utilises a single supply and combines this with two independent backup generator sources. Each system is backed up through battery UPS and generators. We also store enough fuel on-site for one week’s performance

Fire Protection

We take the risk of fire very seriously.
Cutting-edge fire detection systems are situated throughout our locations and all procedures are designed to highlight and minimise any potential risk.
Both our facilities utilise building-wide, multi-zonal fire detection systems with both ionisation and optical detectors in suites, roof cavities and sub-floors. To some this would be enough, but for complete peace of mind we’ve gone even further and installed VESDA aspirating smoke detectors, which are able to detect fires before they flare, allowing the best possible opportunity to detect and control the spread of fire before it can take hold

Facility Amenities

It’s important that our customers enjoy the experience of using our services. When on-campus, visitors have access to rest areas with drinks facilities when they need to take a break. If they need to touch base with the office, free WiFi is provided. For those who are with us for an extended period of time, we have male and female showers available should visitors need to freshen up.
