Hampshire-based data centre provider ServerHouse has added another facility to its portfolio, as businesses across the South embrace the need to improve their security and data management, while bringing the cloud to the customer. The new data centre in Fareham is a 22,000 square foot tier III data centre, in easy reach for businesses right across Hampshire just off Junction 9 of the M27.
Owner Gary Coates believes that the pressure of GDPR compliance earlier this year, together with some very high-profile data breaches, has led companies to become more focused on the need to manage their IT correctly. Speaking about the new data centre, he said:
“We’ve really put a focus on reliability and security. We have two separate UPS systems with redundancy in each 2(N+1) and also two backup generators (N+1). For security we’re fully detached in our own fenced off compound.
“There have been so many headlines about companies losing customer data or being hacked and business owners are realising that it would cost a lot more if they don’t invest in the best possible solution. This is why we provide disaster recovery to all of our customers as standard, and having data centres on two sites is another advantage.”
ServerHouse now operates a total of four data centres across Hampshire.
