Telecoms company 52 Degrees has moved its IT from a data centre in London’s Docklands to Migsolv’s high security facility in Norwich as part of a new technology strategy to support its expansion.
The firm recently undertook a technology review to ensure its ability to deliver its services with the greatest possible reliability and efficiency. As a result, it decided to change colocation provider to the Migsolv Gatehouse data centre in Norwich, to benefit from its ultra high security levels, 100% uptime and state-of-the art facilities.
Migsolv’s Gatehouse data centre is on a nine-acre site in Norwich which is free of terrorism and flood risks. It incorporates a range of rigorous security measures including data hall access by iris recognition, CCTV coverage of every square inch of the site, microwave intruder detection and state-of-the-art fire protection systems.
Anthony Wright, director at 52 Degrees, explains: “We recognised the security and availability of our IT as absolutely vital to the services we provide our customers – and so to our own business success. As part of our expansion strategy, we took a close look at the best colocation options and the Migsolv facility was a clear winner for us.
“The Gatehouse is one of the world’s most secure data centres. Based in Norwich, it avoids the terrorism risks facing London and other big UK cities. It offers 100% uptime and represents great value, which helps us deliver the same to our customers.”
