The construction of The Gatehouse Data Centre operated by MigSolv, generated a huge amount of excitement in the East Anglia region of England, introducing a whole new type of data facility to this area. From its unique setting in Norwich, it provides a range of services that have allowed it to become one of only three UK data centres that are listed for PCI DSS compliance. Aside from that, it is the only British data centre that has been independently audited and certified. Its impact upon the environment was also an overriding consideration for MigSolv during the construction process, and they have excelled in this aspect with no compromise in performance.
All MigSolv staff on the site are full-time employees, and they offer a presence that is operational 24 hours a day. 100% of its regular power is supplied from renewable sources supported by back up diesel generators in the unlikely event of a power outage to the site. These generators can run the data centre at full load for up to eight days if necessary. Additionally, the site also benefits from Next Connex's easy connectivity to other national data centres allowing for new orders to be provisioned within its 60,000 square feet of rack space within 7 days.
