Data centre & Network

Hardware | Virtualisation | DataCentre & Network
We operate from four state-of-the-art data centres based in the UK, operating in partnership with the BlueSquare Data Group now Pulsant Ltd. These data centres were built with just two aims in mind: over engineering and robustness. We believe that committed investment in a rock-solid infrastructure will allow continuous growth for our customers and us.

Our Network Operations Centre (NOC) is open 24/7, 365 days a year and we monitor our infrastructure constantly with a sophisticated alert system, designed to make sure our staff are informed of any issues within one minute.

Network
Network scheme

We run a fully redundant BGP Network, working with our sister company, Simply Transit. This consists of two separate hardware vendors, providing redundancy at both network and hardware levels. We have both Extreme Networks and Foundry Networks at all of our locations, from which we operate two separate 10Gigabit networks. Above this layer-2 network we operate two independent IP Transit networks (AS29550 and AS34920), which run from numerous Cisco Systems 7606-S RSP720 and 6509 SUP720 routers at multiple London facilities, offering true redundancy to each and every customer.

Connecting with multiple Tier 1 providers, as well the London Internet Exchange (LINX), we are the only provider able to offer IP services diverse of London, to any of our customers.
