Advantages Of Data Centre Outsourcing
In insight / By Lydia Cooper / 12 September 2017
Discover why it is best for your business to use a provider with their own Data Centre. There are many advantages of data centre outsourcing for your business.
Benefits of Choosing a Service Provider Who Owns Their Own Data Centre
When looking at a data service provider for your hosted desktop systems, it can all be a bit overwhelming. How do you know you can trust another business is going to have overall control over all your data? And how do you know that, if ever, an issue arises, that it will be dealt with instantly, reducing all disruption to your business's usual day in, day out activities?
Here at Nasstar, we have our own data centre, built with you in mind. There are countless benefits, mostly your peace of mind that we have you, our devoted clients, at the forefront of everything we do. So sit back and relax, as we tell you exactly what those benefits are.
Our data centre is innovative, and is designed by ourselves
We know exactly what we want from our data centre. And the only way you can achieve this is by having your own design, so that is what we did. Based on our own modular design, it allows an extra capacity to easily bring a stream online, without any impact on service.
Being designed by ourselves, we have direct control over architecture, infrastructure, service operations, standards and personnel, showing our dedication to delivering a 100% focus on quality of service. That is why we have a range of measures in place to ensure that no matter what is going wrong on our end, disruption to you and your business is minimal.
We have data centres globally
Telford, Enfield and London are our national data centres, as well as a data centre in Singapore. Though your data maybe operating amongst various locations, we offer an unrivalled service, keeping your data safe, protected, and available at all times.
Our primary data centre is located at Datapoint House in Telford, (only the trusted staff of Nasstar have access to the buildings where each is stored) and Equinix in Singapore, with our secondary data centre located in London.
You know exactly where your money is going
Come directly to us, and there are no middle men involved in our relationship. It is between you, and us. That means that all the facts you hear are true, and if you want something sorted, there is no one else to call to ensure your experience is as uneventful as possible. You know that every penny is being spent on the latest in data storing technology, that the finest engineers are ensuring everything is being run smoothly, and that the most helpful office staff are always on call for you to speak to, no matter how big or small the issue.
Our primary data centre has over £5 million worth of investment, showing our commitment to bringing you the best service possible.
The planet benefits from your investment
Being energy efficient is big on the agenda for companies. If you can save money in the long term, and show you are actively trying to make a change to the planet, then there is really no reason why it should not be considered.
Being energy efficient is something that we see as vitally important, and that was something we saw as essential when designing our data centre. Our Tier 3 data centre at Datapoint House is one of the most advanced eco-friendly facilities in the UK, winning the title of “Environmentally Friendly Data Center of the Year - UK” in 2015 from the Acquisition International Business Enterprise Awards.
The money our clients spend on our services is continually invested back into the company, to ensure we maintain the high standards set out by ourselves. Service providers who do not own their own data centres don’t have the same luxury, spending excessive amount of money on energy, rather than on their services.
We are in control of our own emergency procedures
Running, designing, and owning our own data centres allowed us to ensure that every single measure has been taken into account, because you can never predict an incident, only plan for when one might occur. There are a range of incidents that could be faced, we hope we never face them, but we can ensure that, unlike service providers who don’t own their data centres, your data will be safe with us.
We offer 24/7 security at all locations, on-site backup fuel generators with 24 hours-worth of fuel, on-site backup batteries, with V.I.E.W detection (Very Intelligent Early Warning), and dry pipe sprinklers all ready as part of our fire strategy.
