Gyron, a leading UK provider of colocation services, have announced that their new Hemel Hempstead based Centro data centre facility opened for business on the 1st of June 2009 with over 70% of the initial capacity pre-sold.

Conveniently located close to the M1 and M25, the facility is set within a secure 50,000 sq ft compound and has 3MVA of HV power through redundant supplies, and multiple fibre providers on-site. The facility has been fitted out to a high specification, with all infrastructure installed with a minimum of N+1 redundancy, and certain key elements at 2N. A state-of-the-art IP CCTV system and access control system provides security, including man-traps and biometric iris scanners.

The facility uses highly energy efficient design principles, with enclosed rack hot aisle containment and economical chilled water cooling allowing standard rack densities of 4kW, rising up to a maximum of 24kW. Colocation space is available from individual racks up to private suites, complemented by a wide range of connectivity and management services. All power, cooling and connectivity services are covered by comprehensive 100% uptime Service Level Agreements.

“Gyron has been providing colocation services for over nine years now, with five of those as a member of LINX. We have established a wide reputation for our high specification, no-nonsense services and look forward to building on this at our new Centro facility in Hemel Hempstead” said Gyron Director, Robin Balen. “We’re very pleased with both the level interest and number of agreements already signed with both existing and new customers at the new facility”.

    This is great Robin. It was a pleasure to promote your new data centre and I’m delighted to see you have provided a link to HotLINX for us.

    You may be interested to know that HotLINX has now been downloaded nearly 300 times in three days so that’s a very encouraging start.

    Maybe there will an opportunity to feature further Gyron articles in the future.
