Solihull Metropolitan Borough Council Project

We are almost at completion point at SMBC and are in the final stages of testing the facility. Monitoring systems have been installed together with leak detection with links back to the main system. All part of the energy saving initiatives that the council have requested. Many energy monitoring systems can be installed retrospectively, the very sophisticated systems can measure usage down to a specific department within an organisation and can then make recommendations on how to spread the energy usage to make the overall DC more efficient.

SMBC is a high profile organisation with facilities for hosting council meetings and other important speaker events. For this reason, the data centre has had special attention to noise reduction to ensure that meetings and presentations are undisturbed by the humming of the data centre workings. The last step will be specialist cleaning to ensure that the room is completely free of dust particles before the client begins using the facility.IMG_1519 We look forward to our formal handover of thiIMG_1522s traditional build data centre which is neatly tucked into the car park area.

Data Centre Design & Build – its a team effort

Designing and building a Data Centre is a big task. The project is a big investment for any business, the time scales are often impacted by the daily running of the business, especially if it involves patients onsite and the project leader has to manage parties across the entire business who have a vested interest in the Data Centre. This might sound like a cocktail for disaster for many companies but at Secure IT Environments, we pride ourselves on taking away some of the friction points and ensure that the working environment is as stress-free as possible for everyone involved.

Our recent project at Queen Elizabeth NHS Trust in Kings Lynn is a good example of a team working together. Sitting down as one team and working through all the logistics. Communication is key to any project and essential in the building of a data centre and installation of infrastructure, an area we excel in. Our ongoing relationship with the QE team is testimony to their experience of having our Secure IT Environments team on site. There is nothing we enjoy more than handing over a project to smiles all round. We look forward to working with Mike West and his team again should the opportunity arise.

Data Centre Summit – Manchester @Datacentsummit

We are looking forward to the Data Centre Summit in Manchester later this month and are putting together the finishing touches for our exhibition. Our team will be available to discuss all aspects of Data Centres, whether you are interested in a traditional design and build project or modular build, or perhaps you have space constraints and are looking into our containerised DC product. We offer free and impartial advice and have a large number of completed projects that you can arrange to visit to get a feel for the kind of infrastructure you might want to consider for your own DC.

The market is flooded with new technology, energy efficiency products and new design and build opportunities which can be confusing to navigate when you are tied to a budget. Let us help you to plan your project using the best available products and infrastructure for your brief and budget.

Come and see us at DC Summit in Manchester – Stand 32 on 30th September! Look forward to seeing you there.
