QiComm opens doors to new London data centre
QiComm has officially opened the doors at its new data centre. The new centre is located in Docklands London, and showcases cutting edge technologies implemented to deliver enhanced energy efficiency.The new data centre, known as Tutis Point comprises 20,000ft2 of net technical space.
Tutis has deployed plant and air conditioning designed to the highest standard and efficiencies. The fully redundant air conditioning systems utilises electronic expansion valves, enabling automatic control which can throttle back when the weather is cooler and is therefore much more efficient.
Redundant generators are deployed on the ground floor of the facility complete with single day and long term fuel tanks. Rotary fly wheels that are endorsed by the carbon trust are in place. These fly wheels use minimal energy to continue in high speed rotation. In the event of a power failure the energy in the flywheel is converted to electrical power for a short period of time until the generators take the load.
QiComm worked with ZTE to ensure its data centre customers receive a secure and highly scalable, high speed service with the best possible connections to global telecommunications networks. ZTE installed high specification routers, switches and firewalls to enable carrier level communications and network management for the data centre.
In addition to providing services that will compete with today’s leading data centres, Tutis will also have 40 engineers located on site offering a high level of skill in IT and telecoms services. Having these engineers allows Tutis to provide fast response support services to its customers. A full range of telecoms services and expertise will be available to all customers.
A Telepresence solution has been deployed within the facility allowing customers to have access to an on demand service for high definition conferencing services. The solution has been implemented in conjunction with AT&T.
