Today IP House officially opened its doors for business.
The colocation data centre is built to Tier III standards and contains 14,000 square foot of low latency white space with the capacity for 512 racks across two technical data suites.
Located on the fringe of London’s financial district ‘in the postcode but off the island’, the data centre has direct links to local public transport destinations including London Bridge, Canary Wharf and Canning Town.
“From the design stages through to the deployment of the first pod, our focus has always been built around three core and customer-centred principles,” says IP House operations & commercial manager Vinny Vaghani.
“The first was to partner with industry-leading vendors, which ensures we deploy the most reliable and innovative technology solutions throughout the facility. The second was to gain accreditations that would reflect our commitments to uptime, security, resiliency and continual improvement. The third was to develop a reputation for industry-leading customer service, which is something all of the founding members are extremely passionate about.”
According to IP House the new facility is both cloud and carrier neutral with superfast connectivity to the London Internet Exchange (LINX) as well as multiple cloud platforms.
The company stresses the data centre is the perfect high-performance solution for customers reliant on business-critical applications and data hosted within the facility as it utilises a category 6 backbone cabling infrastructure to deliver support for high speed networks ranging from 10Gb/sec to 100Gb/sec.
IP House has partnered with a number of vendors in the process of building and maintaining the data centre with the goal to adhere to the highest standards of uptime, security and resiliency.
Infrastructure solutions from key partners include Schneider Electric’s Symmetra UPS, deployed in an N+1 configuration with 4x 500kVA, Schneider Electric’s EcoStruxure IT DMaaS platform, and HellermannTyton’s RapidNet pre-terminated cabling system.
“IP House are committed to providing customers with a secure, competitive and resilient colocation service, that safeguards them against downtime,” says IP House data centre manager Sean Hilliar.
“Our customers can be assured that we are focused on both innovation and continual improvement. These are the values on which our brand has been built and will be our differentiators in a market where space is currently low and Capacity is in high demand.”
The company has certainly hit the ground running with its accreditations, so far achieving:
