Matthew Edgley, TeleData’s Commercial Director, comments: “Much of our continued success can be attributed to the growth of our existing partners and customer base. Recognition of this drives our commitment to provide a continuous supply of high-quality rack space to facilitate their future growth.”
To bring the new expansion space into service, TeleData will be making substantial investment into additional cooling and power infrastructure. Resilient, state-of-the-art air conditioning systems with cold aisle containment will be deployed to ensure best possible energy efficiency, whilst also providing capacity to support an average of 7kW per rack. All rack power will be conditioned and protected by high capacity UPS systems in up to 2(N+N) configuration.
This level of UPS resilience ensures that TeleData hosted customers are protected against factors that could otherwise cause downtime to critical servers or telecommunications equipment, and far surpasses the minimum resilience requirement of Tier 3 design – a typical minimum infrastructure design benchmark for data centre service providers.
As well as providing an extra level of resilience in the event of UPS hardware failures, this allows TeleData to carry our critical system maintenance without removing UPS power protection for their customers during maintenance windows on these key components.
Edgley continues: “We are attracting record numbers of new customers as an increasing number of organisations realise the advantages of outsourcing their data centre and critical server infrastructure – either to a colocation service, a specialist IaaS environment, or a hybrid combination of the two.
“We’re also seeing a trend of service migration from other data centres in the region due to cost uncertainties and customer service or relationship issues.”
