Tier 4 enterprise class facility; unmatched resilience and performance. Pulsant has completed a major £3.8 million expansion at its Tier 4 designed data centre in Milton Keynes, bringing the site’s total capacity to 37,000 sq ft.
Mark Howling, CEO at Pulsant, comments, “This is a flagship data centre in a prime ‘out of London’ location. It operates to ISO27001, is PCI compliant, supports high rack power densities up to 15Kw, is connected by a resilient, multi-carrier high speed network with 2ms of network latency and is within one hour of the Capital.”
Pulsant does everything possible to prevent unauthorised access to the site, buildings and data halls as well as to the rack housings themselves. We also have systems in place to identify and react to threats so that your infrastructure is protected from theft, damage or interference.
Pulsant has built a number of client facilities to ensure any time you spend on site is comfortable. There is ample provision for client IT staff who may be required onsite, this includes parking, rest rooms, kitchen, build facilities, dedicated offices and meeting rooms.
To eliminate risk from outage, the site uses diverse supplier feeds from multiple grid points ensuring there is no single point of failure. The site was designed for redundancy with a 3.5mVA power supply, reliable back-up sources and enough fuel onsite for 30 hours at full load.
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.
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. N+1 cooling is provided by Airedale CRAC water chilled and high efficiency DX CRAC units in each data hall.
Ensuring our infrastructure and customer equipment operate safely is one of our greatest concerns. The facility is equipped with VESDA fire detection which continuously samples the air for smoke particles. In the event of an alert we have installed a FM200 suppression system
Each data centre within Pulsant's portfolio is designed to the highest and most advanced specification. We deliver efficiency, resiliency, continuity and ultra-fast connectivity that are second to none.
