Our Data centre

SAFE & SECURE

Our Cheltenham Data Centre benefits from a full perimeter fence, CCTV which is monitored 24/7, and an access control system.

Full rack customers have lockable rack doors. Data floors and Power rooms have a gas based fire suppression system using a VESDA early warning system.

Network

Our network is multihomed, and is delivered to the datacentre over our route and carrier diverse MPLS network


Power

We are fed from the power grid by a 11kV ring main, with our own substation on site. Continuity is provided by 2 diesel generators and physically separate UPS's


Electrical

11,000 Volt, diversely fed ring main supply.

Reserved network capacity of 4 Megawatts.

Dual 1500kVA 11kV-400V transformers.

Concurrently maintainable LV power grid. Multiple redundant components.

Castell interlocked bypass and full rated bus couplers.

On site 24/7/365 M&E support.


Ups

01 20-minute run time at full load.

02 Optional B feed from physically separated UPS system.

03 On site 24/7/365 M&E support.


Fire

Addressable, multi-zoned optical, smoke and heat detection systems.

Dual zone VESDA in each colocation area.

Low pressure FM200 gaseous fire suppression in all critical power areas.

High pressure IG55 gaseous fire suppression in the data floors.


Generation

On site diesel generation, 2N (backing both sides of the power grid).

Fuel supply on site for 48 hours @ 100% load, backed by a 4-hour priority fuel contract.

Quarterly load bank testing & fuel polishing regime.

On site 24/7/365 M&E support.


Cooling

Data floors temperature controlled using hybrid DX/ free air systems.

Energy efficient adiabatic cooling system to minimise our carbon footprint.

Minimum N+1 redundancy on all cooling plant.

On site 24/7/365 M&E support.


Data Floor

600mm raised floor void, 42mm Heavy Duty, PSA rated floor structure.

42/47U racks, alternatives available on request.

Custom designed cold containment and air distribution.

Maximum power density 16kW per rack.

Bespoke private suites, rack configurations and rack densities available on request.


Core

Core network notes at Telehouse North (THN) & Sovereign Telicity (SOV) House

BGP upstream connectivity with multiple Tier 1 carriers.

1.5Tbit/s maximum core fabric performance, dual homed, (THN), (SOV).


AGGREGATION/ BACKHAUL

Diversely connected to Safe hosts core network aggregation sites via Dark Fibre.


connectivity

Route and Carrier diverse DWDM fibre between (THN) & (SOV).

Dark Fibre/ DWDM access to all major Docklands Data Centres.

Sub 4.5ms round trip latency between (SAX) and (THN).

(SAX) is on net for: Safe Hosts Internet, SSE, Vodafone, Virgin, BT Open reach.

AS59816 (Safe Hosts Internet LLP) house network available at all locations.

- 24/7/365, UK based NOC.

- Multiple 10Gbit connections to Tier one carrier mix.
