Facility extended at The Bunker’s former military operations room
The Bunker, which describes itself as a provider of ultra-secure managed hosting, cloud computing, colocation and outsourced IT, announced it has opened a significant new data hall in Kent.
The former military operations room at its South East facility becomes the latest data hall to open in what the firm claims is Europe’s most secure data centre. The new data hall has been fitted out with state of the art power and cooling infrastructure, providing up to 32 amps of UPS power per rack and N+1 fully redundant power and air conditioning, the firm said.
The facility also benefits from hot and cold aisle separation, dual power feeds, generator back-up and over 150 ISP connections.
Simon Neal, director of data centre services at The Bunker, said: "I’m delighted with the new data floor at our Kent facility. The ongoing investment allows us to expand our business and provide security conscious organisations with the reassurance of knowing that their hosting and managed services needs are being met in an ultra secure, high specification environment."
Growing awareness of limited power availability and high prices in London is driving up demand for high power density, out-of-London locations, according to The Bunker.
"The first customer has already moved in and we anticipate a rapid take-up of space and the opening of phase 2 in the near future," Neal said.
