Fire Suppression

Fire suppression system inside of datacentre

Industry standard VESDA (Very Early Smoke Detection Apparatus) and gas-based suppression system are deployed within each data hall (above and below the raised floor) as well as in the energy centre and plant rooms.

Racks (PDU)

Data centre engineer working on sever rack

As standard a dual stream A & B power supply is delivered via two 32A commando sockets to each lockable, 47U rack. The power distribution to each rack is resilient as each supply emanates from a separate distribution point. High density racks can easily be accommodated on request up to 63A three phase.

Uninterrupted Power Supply (UPS)

Data centre UPS system

Industry recognised UPS units are employed in a N+1 configuration to provide up to 10 minutes of full load cover should the facility need to cut over to generator power supply.

The UPS system also manages and controls the distribution of clean and uninterrupted power within the facility.

Generators

Data centre generators within compound

3 x 1 MVA SDMO manufactured diesel-powered generators employed in N+1 configurations provide a minimum of 48 hours' of power supply (at full data hall load) to cover any mains power outages. We hold over 45,000 litres of fuel on site, further supported by a refuelling contract delivering fuel to site within 8 hours on a 24/7/365 basis.

Security

Security fencing with anti-climb measures

PCI and ISO accredited and with 24/7/365 on-site security, access protocol and 2.8m razor wire prison fencing we guarantee the only person accessing your hardware is you.

  • Security accreditations: ISO27001:2013, ISO 9001:2008 and PCI DSS
  • Access control: Fully integrated access control management system, proximity card controlled access/egress
  • On-site security: 24/7/365 by SIA accredited UKFast staff
  • CCTV: Internal and external

Airflow & Cooling

Racks of servers within data centre cold aisle

All of our data centres employ cold aisle containment, consisting of a solid roof and sliding doors at each end to minimise the air loss and increase efficiency.

  • Type of cooling system: Emerson Digital DX CRAC deployed in the data halls, energy centre and plant rooms
  • Cooling redundancy: N+1 to each data hall
  • Temperature range: 19-22°C
  • Relative Humidity: 40% (+10/-5)
  • PUE (Power Utilisation Effectiveness): <1.3

Network & Connectivity

Engineer working on networking equipment

As a carrier neutral data centre operator we facilitate a wide range of connectivity and communications options including IP transit, Point to Point, Ethernet and diverse dark fibre connectivity to tier 1 and 2 international, national and local carriers.

  • Carrier neutral: Yes
  • Available carriers with full network PoP: BT, Virgin Media Business, Level 3, Cogent, Zayo, The Loop/Gamma, SSE, Metronet, Convergence, IXReach, UKFast
  • Diverse fibre routes
  • Peering agreements: LINX, LONAP, LIPEX, MaNAP/EDGE-IX, MCIX

Flooring & Cabling

Network cables in cable tray above server racks

The power and data cabling management systems have been separated within the data halls to eliminate electromagnetic interference and remove risk of power transients. The power cabling management system has been positioned beneath the 450mm raised floor with the network and data cabling system run via above-rack trays.

Energy Efficiency

External cooling fan units
  • PUE: Operating power utilisation effectiveness of <1.3
  • 100% Carbon Neutral: BSI PAS 2060 accredited

Data Recovery Clean Room
