Connectivity

You can choose which provider is best for you, as the facility is well connected for both Internet Access and WAN connectivity from over 400 carriers and CDN providers including Level 3 Communications, NTT, Cogent, BT Openreach, Verizon, Colt, KCOM, Virgin Media Business, Cable and Wireless and many others. You’ll also benefit from connection to the Backbone Connect multi-carrier metro network.

Power

You’ll get flexibility when it comes to your power requirements, as the centre offers available power from 1kW to 6kW per rack footprint. The facility also has five 3.8MVA 11kV diesel-driven emergency power generators to safeguard against power outages and reduce the chance of down time.

Location

The centre sits in the heart of London, situated on Goswell Road in the London borough of Islington. The facility is approximately 15 minutes walk from Angel Underground Station on the Northern Line, and around 15 minutes walk from Old Street station, also on the Northern Line and with national rail links. There is also on-site parking if you prefer to visit by car. Local amenities include a variety of restaurants, shops and coffee shops.

Building

Your infrastructure is in good hands with a dedicated facilities management team monitoring the premises 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Temperature and humidity levels are regularly monitored and controlled to ensure optimum conditions for your racks, and high sensitivity smoke detection devices are present in the return airflow of CCUs.

Your racks are also very secure, with CCTV, 24/7 security presence, and the building has a full electronic access control system, based on proximity cards, PIN keypads and biometric palm-scanners.

With 24/7 access to your racks, and our team of experts on hand to troubleshoot any problems, this is an excellent choice for colocation data centre space in the heart of London.
