UK provider of hybrid cloud services, Pulsant, has opened a new data centre hall in its South London site as part of planned £20 million upgrade project.
The new Hall 7 was officially opened on April 21st 2017, and has been built with more than 400m2 of new data floor space, which can accommodate almost 200 racks.
Overall, the hall has been built with energy efficiency, redundancy and security in mind.
Matt Lovell, CTO, Pulsant said: “The construction of Hall 7 is just the latest step in our plan to expand the capacity and services delivered from our South London data centre site to include eight purpose-built data halls, bringing the total area to 3,300m2 .
“As it stands, the new hall expands our capabilities in this attractive location just outside the City and has met our customers’ demand for more space in a highly secure, connected and resilient facility.”
The new data hall includes latest design innovations on both plant and materials. This includes Eurobond insulation to reduce temperature increases as a result of environmental changes.
Being one out of Pulsant’s network of 14 owned and operated sites, the South London facility is a tier 3 equivalent and features 24 hour on-site security, ISO 9001, 14000, 27001, 22301, Cyber Security Essential, CSA Star and PCI DSS accreditation.
It has been designed as a minimum to be fully maintainable N+1 configuration across power and cooling, combined with Pulsant’s own resilient fibre network.
The company has also confirmed that it will be offering its Cloud Connect and Protect services, to provide secure direct access to Microsoft Expressroute and AWS DirectConnect.
