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.
