Inside our data centre
Main electrical panel
The main electrical panel means every server has two completely independent power feeds from the National Grid, and multiple transformers to protect against power loss.
We have multiple SDMO 1.1MVA generators for emergency power provision in the unlikely event the mains power fails.
Batteries support the power to the servers if there’s a disturbance on the mains load or during the time it takes for generators to start. Plus, multiple STS (Static Transfer Switches) power switches allow us to seamlessly switch power between UPS units, resulting in the highest levels of resilience and diversity.
The UPS filter on our group of 400kVA UPS units cleans the power so when supplied to the servers it is stable and reliable.
HV transformers & generators
A gantry sits above our transformers and generators and carries our busduct which leads power from the transformers and generators back into the building.
We can manually release the gas extinguishant to put out any fire in an instant and our fire beacons and sounders alert staff in the case of an emergency.
The air conditioning units extract hot air from the servers, cool it, and recirculate it into the room while louvers allow cold air in.
We pass the warm water from inside the data centre through chilled water pipework so it returns to the data centre cold.
Our high bandwidth MPLS core network infrastructure connects our main data centre to POP sites in Slough and London so you can have complete peace of mind that your services will remain steady 24/7/365.

What our customers say
names.co.uk have been our hosted server solution provider since conception in 2009. Pro-active, re-active, reliable and responsible. Can't ask for more.
Server quality and value count, but it’s the support team that sells it for me. It's reassuring to have a bank of detailed skills, knowledge and experience just a friendly phone call away. Servers are complicated - there will always be problems, but it's how well they are sorted that matters.
