Our Kent data centre is our primary and largest location housed in Vinters Business Park, Maidstone, Kent. Also home to our headquarters, this facility has been built to an exceptionally high specification featuring a world class resilient infrastructure with N+1 redundant power, air conditioning and network.
The datacentre guarantee all customers a redundant high-capacity, stable and reliable power supply which can easily be scaled to support any future expansion. All power feeds are isolated between racks with regular checks and maintained to ensure stability. The data centre also boasts high specification uninterruptable power supply units to maintain power to the entire building in the event of a mains grid failure with backup on-site diesel generators for extended periods.
To ensure optimum performance, all data floors are maintained at a constant 21°C ± 2°C and relative humidity is kept at 50% ± 10%. Both are continually monitored electronically and will alert on-site staff upon thresholds being surpassed.
The data centre facility contains a VESDA (Very early smoke detection apparatus) fire detection system to help avoid fire and ultimately service disruption. This is coupled with an FM200 gas based fire retardant that is environmentally friendly to put out fires instantly without damaging equipment.
To provide maximum security the data centre is located within a secure compound consisting of perimeter fencing, electric gate entry and a gate house which is manned 24x7x365 by security personnel. Strict access controls are operational within the data centre building including proximity access card readers and secure lockable racks to prevent unauthorised access to the data centre and equipment.
