Virtual Tour of NGD│Inside the largest Data Centre in Europe │Next Generation Data


Set across three floors and measuring an
incredible 750,000 square feet, this is Europe’s largest data centre. Welcome to
NGD. Once inside, as you would expect, there is
an additional layer security system this can be enhanced with second-level
biometric authentication. Typically, this would be iris or hand scanning recognition. With the ground-floor, now at full
capacity, we are expanding to the top floor. The average data centre is 14,000 square feet, we still have 500,000 square feet of spare capacity. This is one of our data halls from colocation to wholesale halls with additional levels of security we are able to meet the specific requirements of every client. Maintaining IT equipment at the correct temperature is a key deliverable for NGD. We have thoughts engineers on-site 24/7 monitoring and maintaining the cooling
solutions throughout the building. We have fire detection and fire suppression systems in a zone configuration throughout the building. Fire detection is Vesda. Fire suppression is IG 55 which is a 50% argon 50% nitrogen mix. This is enough to put out any fire but still allows people to breathe. The plant room is at the core of the NGD
service offering, the fully resilient design allows us to deliver A and B
power feet to the top of every single client rack in the facility eight years
into live operation we have had zero SLA breaches the incoming ng D power supply
is fully protected by an uninterruptible power supply UPS in the event of a loss
of mains the UPS batteries will protect the full load of this plant room for up
to 10 minutes the automation sequence takes that load after generators within
20 seconds NGB is the only datacenter in the UK
with a direct connection to the super grid the last time the supergroup had an
outage was over 45 years ago but we are not taking any chances these five
generators will generate over two megawatts of power and we have over 40
of them well that’s the whistle-stop tour of NGD and there is so much more
than we want to show you so get in touch you
