The team here at Netwise is incredibly proactive when it comes to improving the data centre. NH:DC1 is our biggest asset, and as such we endeavour to ensure it is always performing as well as it possibly can. We leave no stone unturned in our persistent quest for service perfection.
This month has seen the addition of further resilience to the site, culminating in an improved SLA for our customers.
New BT Fibre Now Lit
Additional capacity and resilience has been added to our network through the implementation of a brand new BT line, giving us direct access into Telehouse North (THN). This improves our ability to accommodate for fail-over should anything on our existing feeds miss a beat, and also provides additional capacity into the facility.
Improved BGP Routing
This has also opened up new BGP routes, meaning improved global latencies on an increased number of pathways around the world.
New Rolls Royce Generator Live this Summer
As further illustration of our commitment to infrastructure improvements, we are installing a new generator set this June / July, which offers greater resilience in a more efficient and effective way. The new gen-set is powered by a Rolls Royce twin-turbo diesel engine, and has it's own on-site fuel supply. We also have agreements in place with a large oil company to supply additional fuel to site within the terms of our SLA should any prolonged power outages occur.
Improved Service Level Agreement (SLA)
All of our improvement works over the past and coming months have culminated in an improved SLA for our customers, which is active immediately. We have bolstered our 99.9% uptime guarantee on connectivity up to a 99.99% uptime guarantee on both power and connectivity. Please take a look at our revised Terms and Conditions for more information.
Our Beautiful New Reception
If you have visited our facility, then you will already know first hand how important image is to us. Our school of thought is that things shouldn't only work exceptionally well; they should be presentable and aesthetically pleasing too. Our reception has always lacked behind the rest of our site, while we invested heavily in the data centre and primary office areas. We have now extended this into the reception area, which is welcoming and modern. We hope you enjoy your visits to our facility all the more since completion of this work in early June.
If you would like to know more about our recent enhancement works, or would like more information on our on-going commitment to constant facility improvements, then please do not hesitate to contact us.
We are very excited to announce our nomination for 'Best Green Business' at the 2013 South London Business Awards.
This follows our success during the 2012 awards season, in which we took home the award for 'Best New Business' and a special commendation for 'Entrepreneur of the Year' at the Sutton Business Awards, and a nomination for 'Best New Business' at the South London Business Awards.
We are hoping our unparalleled energy savings will take us to a victory in this category - it is fairly safe to assume that no other organisation in our class will be able to match our 250 ton CO2 saving each year. That's equivalent to taking around 55 cars off our roads!
Wish us luck, and keep an eye on our Twitter account on the 4th of July for live updates from the gala dinner.
We are well known for thinking outside the box when it comes to the way we do business here at Netwise Hosting - the same can be said for our promotions. In fact, many of our promotions have been copied by fellow data centre operators around the world. Well, they do say imitation is the highest form of flattery, after all.
Our latest colocation promotion is again a new concept for this industry, a concept that we hope will entice more SME's to our South London facility.

As most of our readers will already know, Mayor of London Boris Johnson opened our data centre for us in May of last year during a visit to Sutton. This was a fantastic day for Netwise, and really helped in getting our name placed alongside some of London's most important figureheads.
This has been further backed up this week, with a personal invitation from Boris Johnson himself to attend City Hall for a meeting to discuss future plans. Boris took a real interest in the progress of our business during his visit in 2012, and is very keen to meet again and catch up, sharing more stories on where we are now, and the details of what's been happening since his last visit.
