Taunton and Somerset NHS Trust stick with Secure IT Environments

Following the completion of a very large data centre project for the Taunton and Somerset NHS Trust, Secure IT Environments have been asked to continue their relationship with the trust and manage the data centre support and maintenance contract until 2016.

The new modular data centre was recently completed in conjunction with KIER construction and comprised a highly energy efficient, wood clad data centre complete with UPS systems, raised access flooring, cold aisle containment and energy efficient airconditioning.

Energy Efficient Data Centre for NHS Trust

There is only one way to keep a brand new state of the art modular data centre in good order and that is to have all elements of the data centre maintained regularly. As part of this maintenance contract, airconditioning will be serviced four times a year, whilst the room and UPS systems are maintained annually. With this programme in place they are unlikely to run into any emergency maintenance problems, but if they do, the contract with Secure IT Environments also inclues a speedy 4hour turn around for breakdowns. Great peace of mind especially if based a little further afield.

What a location for a data centre

This week we have been up in the chilly highlands of Scotland talking to a potential client about two brand new modular data centres including all the infrastructure: air-conditioning, fire suppression, server cabinets and the lot!

No doubt this client will also be focusing on the energy efficiency that the new data centres can provide and the improvements in security, not to mention the environmental improvements. Secure IT Environments are looking forward to the design and planning of such an exciting project in such a beautiful part of the world….. we hope by the time the project starts the snow has finally stopped!


This sheep could be our new neighbour!

Swopping old for new

The latest Pressure Equipment Directive stimpulates that all pressurised equipment must be tested every 10 years. This includes fire suppression equipment such as fire extinguishers and cylinders. In times gone by, checking equipment of this nature would require the cylinders to be taken away and physically checked and returned once they were certified. Not only an inconvenience and considerable down-time471,24 but a risk to your business. Today we are pleased to say that a 10 year check actually means we come and replace your gas cylinders for you – new for old! If you think your equipment is 10 years or older, give us a call and we can quote you for a quick and easy gas cylinder swop.

Website Improvements

We have recently made some improvements to our website which mean you can now find out more about our modular data centres and ancillary services such as fire suppression, cold aisle containment or data centre maintenance and cleaning. We also have a great new video on our home page and data centre section which shows a full data centre build from start to finish including installation of elements such as raised access flooring and security. Our new blog will also enable us to keep you more regularly up to date with projects we are working on and developments within the data centre market. Why not take a look around the new site? We would love to hear what you think about it.
