Green Web Hosting

We have taken the initiative of going green by offsetting our carbon footprint by 110%. We were not satisfied with only going carbon neutral, we wanted to do some good. With the help of dcarbon8 we have calculated the footprint of our servers and offices and invested in more carbon credits than we need..

Datacentre Features

Kent – UK

Our primary site is a newly built facility based in Sittingbourne, Kent. From here we collect our IP transit from SynergyWorks, operating a fully BGP compliant network utilising a ‘best path’ routing policy. Our network is provided courtesy of RackSRV Communications.

 

Power

All clients are guaranteed a redundant high-capacity, stable and reliable power supply. Power is isolated between racks and maintained indefinite.

The datacentres use high specification UPS units to maintain power to the entire building should the main grid fail. High specification generators can deal with both customer and plant load whilst recharging the UPS.

 

Air Conditioning

All data floors are maintained at a constant 21°C ± 2°C and relative humidity is kept at 50% ± 10% to ensure optimum performance. Both are continually monitored with the electronic building management system with also monitors and operates other sensors such as electrical, mechanical, fire detection and leak detection systems.

 

Fire Detection / Suppression

Kent Science Park makes use of Very Early Smoke Detection Apparatus (VESDA). These sensitive smoke detectors are linked to the building management system which is monitored continually from an operations center and provide very early warnings to help avoid fire and business disruption.

This is coupled with an FM200 gas based fire retardant that is environmentally friendly, to put out fires instantly, without damaging equipment.
