POWER & GENERATORS
To eliminate risk from outage or power failure, the site uses diverse supplier feeds from multiple grid points ensuring there is no single point of failure. The site will provide 2N+1 redundant power systems and power feeds up to 10kW per racks to ensure continuous power.
FIRE DETECTION & SUPPRESSION
Ensuring our infrastructure and customer equipment operate safely is one of our greatest concerns. The facility is equipped with VESDA fire detection which continuously sample the air for smoke particles. In the event of an alert we have installed a FM200 suppression system.
Pulsant have built a number of client facilities into the site to ensure any time you spend on-site is comfortable. There is ample provision for client IT staff who may be required on-site, this includes parking, rest rooms, kitchen, build facilities and meeting rooms.
COOLING & PERFORMANCE
Energy is vital to power and cool servers, we reduce energy consumption and costs by using ultra-efficient systems and advanced cold aisle and pod technology.
MULTI LEVEL SECURITY
Pulsant do everything possible to prevent unauthorised access to the site, buildings and data halls as well as to the rack housings themselves. We have systems in place to identify and react to threats so that your infrastructure is protected from theft, damage or interference. The site is a PCI DSS Level 1 compliant facility.
NETWORK & CONNECTIVITY
When creating the data campus we needed to ensure we had ultra-fast connectivity with low latency to London locations. We achieved this as the site houses diverse network connectivity via Dark Fibre to multiple London points of presence with 2ms of network latency.
