Remove your weather worries with Colocation

Wow, what another week of hot weather it has been in the UK, we’re sure that you’ll be hoping that it continues into the weekend to enjoy BBQ’s and beer gardens, but is there that niggling worry about making sure that your cooling systems are working correctly, safeguarding your servers?

We know that you will be aware that your servers are such a vital part of your business, they hold your important data and keep your business operating each day, but like anything important, they take a lot of upkeep, particularly in hot weather…

So why not talk to Data Installation & Supplies about Colocation and remove the maintenance dependency of the server environment on-prem.

Data Installation & Supplies can take care of the cooling and the air flow with the additional benefit that the data centre provides an 100% SLA for cooling uptime is offered with an innovative adiabatic cooling system, because cooling is of upmost importance to the health of servers.

In addition to the benefits in heatwaves, there are further benefits, including:

Security: Security is at the forefront of Data Centre operations and something that is taken extremely seriously, from the security surrounding the perimeter with fencing and electric gate access, to entry requirements and photo ID all security aspects are covered.

In addition to the Data Centre security, there are high security levels in terms of surrounding your actual, physical server.

Starting with the server being locked within your rack, with access only provided via a bespoke cage- with the facility to add on further security measures if your business requires.

Access into the Data Centre will only be granted through pre-booking, which without you will not only not be allowed access to your server, but you will be denied entry into the Data Centre.

Network: By choosing colocation it doesn’t mean that you must change network providers, you will be able to cover your network into the data centre.

This you may think would be an extremely costly element, however the reality is that it’s an easy process and it comes with minimal expenses.

In addition, we can discuss with you what bandwidth, resiliency, and diversity that you require, as it is important to express to you that all can be seen as an affordable solution when you are contemplating colocation.

Space: Servers require space, space that in-house you can potentially better utilise in other ways, which is another added benefit to colocation, depending on the number of units that you require, as you would expect this does play a part in determining the cost of colocation, which is something that we can discuss with you, however we have options ranging from a quarter of rack space all the way up to bespoke private cages.

Power: Power is something that is extremely important and is undoubtedly one of the questions that you will be thinking about, you want to be assured that there will be no problems, how does an 100% Service Level Agreement for power uptime sound to you?
