New developments in server and cabinet technology meant no compromise had to be made on the compute and storage power available to Ridgeons, despite the new data centre site being smaller. The project included new incoming power supply, UPS in N+1 format, energy efficient air conditioning, structured cabling, access control / CCTV, a Novec fire suppression and detection system, 19” cabinets with intelligent power distribution, environmental monitoring, as well as general building works.
Secure I.T. Environments will also relocate the existing generator as part of decommissioning the original site, creating cost savings for Ridgeons. The full decommissioning project will involve taking out all the fire suppression, air conditioning, UPS, cabinets cabling and power. The team will also decommission the structure, ensuring that is securely and responsibly recycled, only disposing of materials when needed and in a way that will minimise waste and environmental impact.
