Every child deserves the best possible chance to rebuild their lives after abuse

Abuse robs children of their childhood. Without help, the scars of abuse can last a lifetime. And as devastating as it can be for the child, society pays a heavy price too.

This is why our own Will Garvie decided to run the Cardiff half marathon on behalf of the NSPCC. We are very proud of his achievement raising almost £500.00 for this very worthy cause. He managed the grueling 13 miles in a personal best time of 1:38 mins putting him a very respectable 1,575th place out of a field of 18,966 runs.

Well done Will from all at Secure I.T. Environments Ltd.!!

Where does the money go to?

During 2016/17 NSPCC spent £91 million on services and activities to make children and young people safer. This includes working with children and families, helplines, the school’s service and child protection and awareness campaigns such as Share Aware.

During a period of financial constraint and increasing digitisation, hospitals face significant challenges when investing in IT infrastructure. Modular data centres offer a cost-effective option for healthcare organisations and can be easily expanded in the future, providing a ‘pay as you grow’ solution, to accommodate future infrastructure for digital healthcare services.

The demands being placed on current digital infrastructure has led to a need for greater storage and processing power. Given the rapid growth of picture archiving and communication systems and medical imaging, most healthcare organisations need more data centre capacity. The data centre is at the heart of the operation, from CCTV to phone equipment, to life-saving equipment and vital patient data.

Yet Secure IT Environments is seeing a trend where communications and server hardware cabinets are being located in what can only be described as the ‘broom cupboard’ as the existing data centre does not have the capacity. In some cases, the incorrect infrastructure – power, cooling and no fire suppression – has been installed, resulting in inefficiencies.

However, this is just the tip of the iceberg. In the main data centre, it is not uncommon for the mechanical and electrical infrastructures to have been poorly designed so they are also inefficient, while the structured cabling, in many cases, is a mess. Often, the data centre is located in areas that restrict access for equipment and have a flood risk.

Infrastructure must be updated to meet the resilience requirements of hospitals, while still being cost-effective and energy efficient.

Creating new buildings or adapting the old can be a very costly and lengthy process, often leading to project overruns or compromises that limit the way the data centre can be expanded in the future.
