(The Hosting News) – C4L, a UK-based IT infrastructure solutions provider, is pleased to announce it has commenced the build of phase two at its Bournemouth data centre. The facility is being built to a Tier 2+ specification, and once complete will be one of the largest data centres in the South West. The expansion of the Bournemouth data centre will provide an additional 120 racks / 3,000 square feet of space, increasing capacity by two-thirds.
“Internet infrastructure is becoming increasingly important as more and more organisations become heavily reliant on online services and connectivity in order to run their business,” said Matt Hawkins, managing director of C4L. “With the adoption of cloud computing increasing and more and more applications and services being delivered away from organisations’ own premises, we experienced a high level of demand for phase one of the Bournemouth data centre. So much so that the site reached full capacity within the first six months of it opening. The high level of demand for colocation space at the Bournemouth facility has prompted us to commence phase two of the build earlier than anticipated. The facility benefits from exceptionally low latency and excellent resilience as it’s connected to our private network, making it an ideal outside of London colocation facility. The Bournemouth data centre is being built to Tier 2+ specifications and at this site we can offer a wide range of IT services.”
Phase two of the Bournemouth data centre will feature N+1 redundancy on power and cooling, as well as backup generators which will take the full load of the building should a mains power failure occur. At the facility, Riello will provide high energy efficiency via uninterruptable power supply (UPS) systems, whilst Airedale is to provide the sites cooling systems. Very Early Smoke Detection Apparatus (VESDA) supplies full smoke, fire detection and fire suppression systems. The building’s air conditioning will use direct expansion based cooling technology coupled with C4L’s cold aisle cooling practises to ensure maximum efficiency.
C4L’s Bournemouth data centre will have the latest advanced triple level security features, including a biometric entry system with a man trap, as well as pin code swipe cards and full 24/7 digital CCTV. The Bournemouth data centre, once completed, will be able to offer colocation space; including quarter, half and full racks up to 32 Amp dual feeds as standard. The Bournemouth data centre will also benefit from high levels of monitoring on power and cooling, ensuring maximum resilience at the site.
