Choosing your co-location partner is an important decision and not all providers are equal!
Network security is often taken more seriously than physical security, we believe both are important, with this in mind we use two of the most secure data centres in the UK that include many layers of security before access is granted to equipment. This ensures your server is secure and safe.
Two separate CCTV systems monitor all access to and from the building and on both the hot and cold aisles of the racks ensuring that all access can be accounted for.
Biometrics using fingerprint recognition ensures only the correct people have access.
When it comes to the network, all servers are hosted behind a hardware firewall and hardened switch, permanent connection to a KVM over IP device allows us to gain access at the console without delay.
Monitoring and BGP redundant bandwidth are also included.
We only co-locate enterprise hardware that is backed by manufacturers onsite support. In addition, equipment must be under 3 years old. If this seems stringent it is because we know what works and what causes problems!
