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.

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.
