BIS Ltd Opens Third Data Hall in London Data Centre
LONDON, November 20, 2012
LONDON, November 20, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
Building on the phenomenal success of its Greenwich data centre, the IT infrastructure service company BIS has announced the launch of its latest server hall at the South East London facility. The self-contained 350 sqm unit offers space for 130 high density equipment cabinets and total capacity for 450Kw of cooling.
"The new server hall is a true N+1 configuration with its own standalone M&E installation, built to the highest standards complying with the latest green data centre initiatives. We pride ourselves on offering the highest specification data centre facilities commercially available in London and, with our flexible customer centric service wrapper, we can offer enterprise and corporate customers a compelling service proposition" said Brian Packer, BIS Chief Operating Officer.
"The site has proven very popular with our City-based enterprise clients so we felt the time was right to invest in the expansion of the facility" elaborated Mr Packer. The new space increases total capacity at the site by 33%. BIS has worked hard to maintain the current high standard of specification for the new infrastructure by deploying new substation mains connectivity, four new 550KVA generators and two redundant 750KVA UPS units. The site has excellent public transport links, plenty of parking spaces and is manned 24/7. The use of biometric access control expedites many of the day to day operational activities including IT personnel access and equipment deliveries. Low cost, diverse gigabit connectivity back to the City of London is available over the BIS Cisco Powered MPLS core network and dedicated leased line services can also be purchased from BT, Virgin, COLT and Geo, all of whom currently operate from the site.
