Mpower Ups With the launch of our Regional Office moving full steam ahead, February seemed as good a time as any to take our new Business Development Manager on the road.  Working alongside MD Michael Brooks, we exhibited at DataCentres North 2017. We demonstrated a range of UPS systems suitable for small and medium sized data centres, including the very latest range of high efficiency Legrand Keor-T UPS.  The Keor-T has a compact design, resulting in a smaller footprint than many UPS.  An internal battery in all sizes up to 60KVA releases further valuable floor space.  For more information on the Keor-T download our brochure:

When bad weather is in your neck of the woods, nothing and no one is immune. It can strike indiscriminately – impacting homes and offices, shops and factories, hospitals and schools in equal measure.

Torrential rain, violent thunderstorms, hurricane force winds, freak localised tornadoes and even excessive cold can cause untold damage to businesses and households alike.

Blame it on man-made intervention or natural long term shifts in our weather patterns, the fact is that Britain’s climate is subject to some pretty spectacular highs and lows. Not all in the same day or month necessarily, but guaranteed to strike randomly from time to time throughout any given year.

And when they do strike, adverse meteorological conditions can have a significant impact on power supply – either causing the mains electricity to shut down completely or resulting in sudden power surges.

For organisations that are heavily dependent on their IT systems – and in today’s world that covers a multitude of enterprises – it pays to be prepared, to put preventative measures in place to mitigate against storm and tempest. This is a major reason why uninterruptible power supply systems have entered the fray in ever increasing numbers...READ More

Company is one of the first to openly admit it is leaving London partially due to terrorism.

Telecommunications company 52 Degrees has exited the British capital and settled bases in a data centre 190 Km away in Norwich due to growing terrorism-related concerns.

The company, which had its IT previously based in the Docklands financial hub, moved to MigSolv’s Gatehouse data centre and one of the reasons for such was the “terrorism risks facing London and other big UK cities”.

52 Degrees provides hosting, broadband, fixed line and mobile services to companies UK-wide.

The decision to move the IT from London was taken following an internal technology review to ensure its ability to deliver its services in a time when reliability and efficiency are key to business success.

As a result, 52 Degrees decided to change its colocation provider to MigSolv’s Gatehouse data centre in Norwich….Read More
