Attenda selects Datum for high specification data centre facilities
Newly built data centre to provide Attenda Clients with extensive range of infrastructure, technology and services
London - 9 October 2012 - Attenda Limited, the Business Critical IT Company, today announced that it has chosen to commission its new purpose built data centre facility with Datum Data Centres Limited, on the QinetiQ Cody Business Park.
The data centre facility is being built to Attenda's exacting standards, with the latest green IT efficiencies, and all of the security, power, cooling, fire protection and carrier neutral connectivity demanded for its highly resilient, enterprise class managed services and cloud platforms.
Commenting on the announcement, Paul Morris, VP Client Service Delivery, Attenda says, "Our existing data centres are reaching capacity, so we needed to provision a new facility to support our ambitious growth plans. The challenge was to find a suitable location, with the capability to match the current and future needs of our growing Client base and strategic partners. We are absolutely delighted with the market leading specification and facilities that Datum will provide."
Located in Farnborough, Hampshire, the new data centre will provide Attenda clients with managed hosting, cloud services and co-location capabilities, to complement and extend capacity and services available within its three existing UK data centres; providing a regional location for primary and secondary data centre requirements. Attenda is initially taking 100 racks and will deploy its Monitoring and Management and Managed Cloud platforms, with extensive connectivity to other Attenda and third party data centres.
Paul Morris continues, "We are delighted to have the opportunity to work with Datum to create a purpose built data centre that will allow us to provision an extensive range of infrastructure, technology and services, within an environment that offers the very latest in environmental intelligence, energy efficiency and multi-layered security."
The new data centre facility is an integral part of Attenda's business plan, enhancing its services portfolio to offer a broader range of business critical IT services, providing client-centric modular, scalable, agile and secure platforms that deliver the availability, performance, security and reliability required by its mid-market clients.
Paul Morris concludes, "Datum stands out in the datacentre market, sharing our ethos for exceptional Client service, with an enhanced service that is supported by pro-active service delivery, service reporting and account management, delivered from datacentres that are as environmentally efficient and intelligent as is possible."
