Sentry42 Launches New Gatehouse Data Center

March 2, 2011 by  

Hosting BlogSurrey, UK – Sentry42 today announces the launch of one of the most secure, reliable and environmentally-advanced data centers in the UK. Sentry42’s 60,000 sqft newly refurbished Gatehouse Data Center is located close to Norwich and will open to customers on May 11th.

Sentry42 is the colocation business of Migration Solutions, the leading independent computer room and data center specialist consultancy responsible for the £12 million refurbishment and ongoing management of the facility that previously belonged to a major insurance organization.

Alex Rabbetts, Managing Director of Migration Solutions, said: “We are delighted with today’s launch announcement and the rapid progress of The Gatehouse from initial concept to a business-ready facility. Today’s data center customers rightly demand state-of-the-art environmental design without comprise on reliability or security. The Gatehouse achieves this and scores very highly on every customer requirement.”

The Gatehouse will provide facilities for companies from across sectors looking to outsource their hosting requirements to a flexible facility which can accommodate growth. It offers N+1 power redundancy with diverse supply to all cabinets and the back-up of UPS and generators with enough fuel to run the entire data center for up to eight days at full load.

The Gatehouse’s telecommunications connectivity offers access to multiple providers via managed Telco Interchange Rooms (TIRs) including BT, Cable & Wireless and Virgin Media, all of which take fiber onto the site. The facility’s resilience and connectivity is matched by its environmental credentials which include free cooling chillers providing over 8,000 hours of energy-free cooling per year.
