We own and operate three primary facilities two in Manchester and one in Nottingham. Skip to the datacentre technical specification documents.

We build, design and run our own datacentres

We design, build and run our own datacentres, because we believe that’s the only way a hosting company can offer you a guaranteed service level agreement (SLA). by being in full control of our datacentres, we can confidently stand behind our SLAs.

We put significant time, effort and money into making sure our datacentres are up to scratch, with resilient power, air conditioning and security in-place. Make sure you come for a datacentre tour to see for yourself.

Manchester and Nottingham datacentres

Reynolds House and Turing House are sister buildings located on the Manchester Technopark on the periphery of Manchester City Centre and our Nottingham datacentre is located on Fishergate close to the city centre of Nottingham.

These buildings comprise our primary hosting facilities. We have long-term leases on these spaces, and have fitted out the hosting space to our own specifications. We’re in complete control and are not resellers of other companies’ datacentre space.

Here comes the technical bit…

They say a picture speaks a thousand words, so instead of boring your with pages of detail, see the exciting datacentre equipment for yourself with our picture tour below. Even better idea – why not come for a datacentre tour?

Reynolds House is supplied by two diverse 6.6kV feeds from a the national grid. Two 2MW Generators with at least 7 days’ supply of fuel, provide us with full capability to sustain long power outages.

Our APC Infrastructure UPS units, in n+1 mode provide us with power to sustain load until the generator starts up as well as ensuring a clean electrical supply.

N+1 air conditioning is provided by underfloor cooling, the air flow directed appropriately by grilles in the floor. The capacity of the equipment is such that a failure of one unit can be handled by the other units.

A full VESDA system that provides early detection of smoke is in place so that any potential fire is detected before it can develop. In the extremely unlikely event that a fire does develop a FM200 gas fire suppression system is triggered.

The facility is based on Manchester Technopark which has security staff on site 24/7 with offsite backup to deal with any major event. CCTV cameras (both internal and external), motion detection and a key fob access system ensures a high level of security with multiple layers of security.
