Why should businesses consider Aegis DATA?
We’re a purpose built HPC facility, meaning our customers can benefit from the smaller footprint and higher computing power. As we’re outside of London we can exploit more cost-effective power services as the demand for power is much lower in Godalming. Our location means that we aren’t paying the higher land costs associated with condensed areas like London or Frankfurt, costs that aren’t recouped at our customers expense. Our low latency connectivity to Tier 1 and Tier 2 carrier interchanges means we still have all the connectivity to key London facilities without the location expense for the customer. It also means we have the space available to expand or modify our facility, allowing us to accommodate for newer technologies in years to come.
Our site has the capability to grow in line with our customers’ requirements, so we can offer a bespoke service to our customers that suit their needs, rather than our customers’ needs suiting us. In addition to be HPC ready, our site in Godalming is also ‘OCP Ready’ (Open Compute Project), highlighting that our facility is designed to accommodate new technologies that don’t conform to the ‘standard’ data centre specifications. We can fit and power wider racks outside the norm and use our HPC suitable cooling and power capabilities to power up to 25kW of adjoining rack stacking.
Our facility is cooled through direct fresh air cooling (except for the odd hot summers day when our fans kick in to play – which let’s face it, is not that often!). Here in the UK, we’re faced with the mildest of weather, summers that aren’t too hot and winters that aren’t too cold which is perfect for Direct Fresh Air Cooling (DFAC). This helps keep our PUE at 1.2, a SLA that many data centre providers in London will be hard pressed to offer.
Security is obviously of paramount concern to any business and at Aegis DATA we take it to the next level. With our sophisticated multi-layered access controls, intruder detection and monitoring systems and bespoke data hall security solutions, we go beyond the industry standard to help ensure your server estate is safe and secure; 24/7, 365 days a year.
In summary, at Aegis DATA we work with our customers to provide an ultra-efficient, cost effective and HPC colocation data centre to support our customers mission critical IT.
