Power

  • Four redundant HV power systems, from separate grids to each building on the Docklands site.
  • N+1 redundant standby generators.
  • Standby generators with a minimum of 24 hours autonomy at full capacity.
  • 8 x 2.5MVA 11kV Generators.
  • 2(N +1) redundant UPS floor by floor
  • Redundant A & B power feeds to customer equipment

Air conditioning & cooling

  • 6 x 2.7MW chillers N+2 configuration
  • Room Air Conditioning Units (RACUs) to provide down flow chilled water system at N+25%
  • RACU with bundled floor area and water leakage detection and monitoring
  • Hot aisle/cold aisle zone design
  • 800mm raised floor design with airflow space to provide the most efficient cooling
  • Free cooling operation in winter
  • Maximum external ambient temperature of 35 degrees Celsius dry bulb

 

The in-room units provide full function, closed control air conditioning, with cooling, humidity and de-humidification control.

Fire detection & suppression

  • Datacentre areas are fitted with a fully addressable two stage fire detection system that monitors the under floor and the room.
  • Detectors with 50% mix of optical and ionisation are installed split across 2 separate zonal-loops, to meet BS 5839, 6266, 5445 and 5588.
  • Very early smoke detection alarms (VESDA) are installed throughout the facility.
  • Dry sprinkler fire detection system to meet BS 5306, 3115 and with LFEPA approval.
  • Gas suppression areas available for dedicated tenancy areas.
  • Systems are designed to minimise any possible customer disruption and to ensure that any minor problems remain localised.

Security System

  • Independent client card identification access system.
  • Secure & monitored single person point of entry, physically guarded 24/7
  • Integrated digital video camera surveillance.
  • Proximity card access from the main Data Centre building to specific facilities management suites.
  • Strict security processes in place to ensure delivery and loading of goods are secure.
  • CCTV coverage for the perimeter, common areas and facilities management suites.
  • Protected perimeter fence fitted with intruder sensing.
  • Secure access procedures to ensure you and your nominated staff gain authorised access to the facility whenever you require, day or night.

Connectivity

The facility has availability of wide connectivity to major telecoms and network service providers, and will be connected to all StratoGen datacentres via the StratoGen network. In addition, LINX, the London Internet Exchange, has a live presence on the site, offering global peering and connectivity options for customers.

Connectivity can be provisioned through 2 redundant meet me rooms offering true diverse network locations.

Environment

StratoGen is committed to providing services to customers and conducting business in an ethically and socially responsible manner that respects the environment.

Photovoltaic cells

  • Application of photovoltaic cells on the data centre roof will contribute to the energy supply of the StratoGen datacentre reducing the reliance on external energy resources.

Waste heat distribution system

  • The StratoGen datacentre has the ability to recover waste heat lost by the facility to reuse for general heating to third parties and also pre-cool the chilled water thus reducing both chiller and dry air cooler power requirements.
  • Employment of a plate heat exchanger system ensures higher efficiency of heat transfer than traditional methods.
