New Data Centre - 16/02/12

After several months of hard work and dedication by the CCS team we are delighted to announce the opening of our new data centre in Leeds - this will ensure we continue to deliver the service in business server collocation and cloud computing with greater capacity and more efficient energy costs.

The centre, which went live in February 2012 , forms part of a major £150,000 investment by us and which can house up to 4,800 servers cooled by an eco-friendly air conditioning system which will significantly reduce the company's energy costs and carbon emissions.

The reason for the choice of location is multi-threaded. Our new data centre on the Leeds Ring Road gives us the space, power, carier availability, visitor facilities and most importantly allows our staff instant access to server equipment to ensure it runs uninterrupted 24 hours a day, 365 days of the year.

The data centre also benefits from a so-call 'N+1 configuration' which means multiple uninterruptible power supplies (UPSs) are in place along with a generator to ensure there are no outages or down time. It is also connected to the CCS's core London network via a direct dual link, with a third carrier link due to come on line in the next couple of months.

We have also upgraded our security on the data centre which means new and existing clients can ensure their data is as safe as it can possibly be.

The site has been planned from the ground up to allow expansion without disruption tour clients, including pre-configured provision within the power systems for additional suites to be brought on line with no service interruption. Moreover, further UPSs can be brought on line at the same time as we expand cooling systems with no impact on customer service.

Please do not hesitate to give us a call should you require any further information, but in the meantime feel free to have a look at some of the colocation packages which are available right now here.
