Data Centres

Our primary Point of Presence is Centro, Hemel Hempstead

Centro is a brand new high specification facility within easy each of M1 and M25 motorways. The facility was built with the enviroment in mind focusing on hot-aisle containment and the latest data center technology to keep the Power Usage Effectiveness (PUE) one of the lowest in the country. Other feature highlights include; biometric security, proximity access control throughout, diverse utility power feeds, built-in n+1 redundancy: UPS secured power, climate control and generator backup including continuous operation and online fuel replenishment. Operating dual communications entry points, Centro has North and South fibre ducting into dedicated communication points at opposite ends of the building.

Dedicated mechanical and engineering corridors ensure that critical facility equipment is housed away from the data floor. VESDA (Very Early Smoke Detection Apparatus) and FM200 fire suppression is standard throughout all suites and Centro operates 24x7 human security in addition to all the technology.
