UK Data Centres

Network Infrastructure

Provided by Simply Transit, we run a fully redundant BGP network consisting of two separate hardware vendors which provides redundancy not only in the network level, but also on the hardware level.

We operate two separate 10 gigabit networks, from both Extreme Networks and Foundry Networks at all locations. On top of this layer 2 network we operate two independent IP Transit networks (AS29550 and AS34920) which run from multiple Cisco Systems 7606-S RSP720 and 6509 SUP720 routers at multiple London facilities, offering true redundancy to each customer.

Connecting with multiple Tier 1 providers, as well the London Internet Exchange (LINX), we are the only provider able to offer IP services diverse of London, to any of our customers.

Hardware Guarantee

Servers deployed at the Data Centre includes hardware replacement guarantee. In case of any hardware failure, the hardware is immediately replaced.

Security

The Data Centre is located inside its own secure compound, with 2.4 and 3 meter fencing and electric gate entry equipped and monitored round the clock with closed circuits. Strict access controls are implemented including surveillance cameras, finger-print as well as Keycard system in order to manage entries.

Electrical Capacity

Equal power distribution (60 watts per sq. ft.- 80 watts per sq. ft). Each cabinet 4' x 6' gets 110 volt, 20 amp circuit. The main power sums up to 480 volt, 3 phase. power supplies are now also activated in Multiple DC.

Power

In the unlikely event of a power outage from local power grid, all data centres' power systems are designed to run uninterrupted with the help of two 2000KW auto-switched power generators and centralised UPS systems. Generators are regularly tested & can be used in emergency event of extended utility power outages.

Precision Environment

Computerised fully master-planned rise system / HVAC pipe system / electrically monitoration. HVAC (Heating Ventilation Air Conditioning) systems are N+1 redundant, ensuring that a duplicate system can immediately come online in the event of an HVAC system failure.

Fire Protection System

Wet Risers set in at every square position. FM-200 system is installed. The advanced fire protection system prevents fires from spreading in the unlikely event one should occur.
