The facility is owned by the group and offers almost unlimited power and space, with a 100% uptime record and ISO 27001 certification. Our diverse dark fibre network offers sub 0.4ms of latency to Telehouse North, so we can offer inner London connectivity but with all of the benefits of being in a safer, less expensive outer London site.
Our entire award winning infrastructure has been designed to give robust, efficient solutions to business continuity. ISO 27001 certification, almost unlimited power and space, world leading efficiency and sub 0.4ms connectivity to the heart of Docklands are just some of the reasons for Custodians’ growing strength in the data centre market. In addition to our existing data floors, a new 260 rack facility is currently under construction and will be available from June 2016. Capacity for a further 1000 racks is available within the building.
Custodian’s flagship site is just 30 minutes south east of London in Maidstone, Kent. Clients include the NHS, a number of Local Authorities, Universities, Silver Circle Law Firms and a wide range of SME’s.
Following continued expansion, Custodian have developed a new approach to data centre provision. Rather than build large data floors, our new development is presented as a series of data rooms with between 18 and 24 racks. These rooms contain just two rows of racks with a single cold aisle and two hot aisles. The many advantages to this include:
Whether the room is let to one client or a number of colocation clients, access to it will be limited to them only.
As it is unaffected by other rows of racks and their temperatures/airflows, the room is easier to control at its optimum environmental level.
A fire threat in any individual room can be dealt with by the Argonite suppression system without affecting other rooms.
Apart from the option of taking an entire room, we are able to cage off a number of racks at one end of the room. As no rack footprints are lost, this is a very inexpensive solution for a private secure area.
All specifications have been developed to provide future proof resilience; and to give us the option to be totally flexible for our client’s needs. All of the built-in advantages of our campus site such as power availability, building management systems, connectivity and security have been combined with the most advanced proven technology.
Custodian are winners of the Green Data Centre award and are the only colocation facility in the world to show its efficiency live online.
