Gyron, a leading UK provider of specialist datacentre services, has celebrated it’s 10th birthday in style by announcing a large expansion at its state of the art Centro datacentre following contract wins in excess of £3.85m for services at the facility alone since first opening 9 months ago.
Robin Balen, Managing Director, comments:
The next phase of expansion at the Centro datacentre is an exciting time for Gyron. Our philosophy has always been that customers will respond enthusiastically when presented with a state of the art datacentre, a flexible approach, fantastic customer service and great value for money, and we’ve been bowled over by the volume of positive feedback about our facility from both new and existing customers. The contract figures speak for themselves, especially given the challenging wider economic conditions.
The fit out works will add an additional 360kW of IT capacity within the datacentre at Hemel Hempstead, over 85% of which has already been contracted for. Work on the expansion space is due to complete on the 1st of June, exactly 1 year after the Centro facility first opened its doors to customer equipment.
Ben Miller, Operations Director, continues:
Our approach from day one when designing the Centro facility was to ensure that the datacentre infrastructure was completely modular. This has allowed us to rapidly expand operations at the site to meet unprecedented demand for our services, and also increase the specification of our services when needed to suit specific customer requirements. This next phase is no exception and we look forward to delivering this additional capacity shortly.
State of the art power and cooling systems have been specified for the expansion area, along with a custom hot-aisle containment system designed in-house, allowing a best-in-class target Power usage Effectiveness (PuE) of between 1.3 and 1.4, whilst simultaneously providing enhanced 2N redundancy on the power infrastructure.
For further details on this and future expansion space at the Centro facility, please contact the Gyron sales team.
