This week we are officially announcing the details of our new data centre, opening in Central London next year. It's now official - Netwise Hosting will be opening a brand new data centre and adjoining head quarters in Bermondsey, with a soft opening set for late March 2014.
The new 11,000sq ft facility will become our flagship data centre, comprised of a two-story zoned technical space holding in the region of 200 racks, comprehensive NOC and support centre, customer lounge and accommodation, meet me rooms, loading bays and warehouse space, central offices and further amenities still undisclosed to the public at this time. The site is being deployed with the very latest in eco-efficient technology, bringing our fantastic green credentials into Central London for the first time.
The new facility will be known as Netwise Hosting Central, located just a few minutes walk from Bermondsey Underground Station, and less than a mile from London Bridge / Cross-Rail. Our existing facility in Sutton will be renamed Netwise Hosting South.
Netwise Hosting Central will up our available rack space capacity by around 900%.
Matthew Butt, Managing Director at Netwise Hosting, has given comment on the ambition of the project.
As with our Sutton data centre in South London, we will be leveraging our in-house expertise in various M&E disciplines to bring this project to life with minimal reliance on 3rd parties.
This is a huge step for us, increasing our available capacity by around 900%. We are chasing the booming Central and East London market with this facility, looking to bring our winning formula of value, quality and flexibility to a customer base closer to the City and Docklands.
We are aiming to maintain the same pricing structure as we have in place at our South London facility, which will likely equate to the best value data centre services anywhere in Central London.
We will be releasing further details on the progress of this project as things move forwards over the next two months. We will also be updating our website and associated materials in the coming weeks. For further details, please contact a member of our team.
We are very pleased to announce that we have again received fantastic recognition for our hard work and dedication, this time at the 2013 Sutton Business Awards.
Netwise Hosting has been Commended in the Best SME category at this years awards, held in Croydon on the 14th November. This award will join a long and ever-growing list of accolades accumulating in our awards space, including Best New Business at the 2012 Sutton Business Awards and 2012 South London Business Awards and Best Green Business at the 2013 South London Business Awards.
Next year we will be looking to enter the 2014 National Business Awards, and will also be in the running for some key industry-specific awards for further recognition of our efforts in the data centre services marketplace.
Moving sensitive IT infrastructure around can be an arduous task at the best of times, even when simply moving servers around in the same building. The task becomes all the more complex when moving hardware between facilities - across countries or even continents.
Migration is something that either goes well, or goes horribly wrong. Moving critical equipment can cause irreparable damage to systems, either through physical damage to hardware from incorrect movement, or damage to data through static and magnetic fields - both can be deadly.
To ensure your move goes as planned, you will need a technical migration partner who can plan the entire move from start to finish. Netwise Hosting have a number of national and global IT infrastructure migration partners who can assist clients at highly competitive rates. Our partners in this field are the best in the business, with specialist equipment designed to make moving critical hardware trouble-free.
Anti-static packaging, impact resistant flight cases, smooth air suspension on all fleet vehicles and expertly trained personnel all contribute towards a fail-safe service that will ensure your systems are moved quickly and efficiently from A to B, ready for re-service as soon as possible.
Migrations form part of our RightStart Colocation Support services, meaning our colocation consultancy team can orchestrate this process for you, bringing in our expert partners where required to move equipment to and from our data centres. If you would like to explore these options in more detail, please do not hesitate to contact a member of our team.
This week has seen our South London facility reach a milestone 80% capacity. This places us ahead of our yearly targets, and has taken our profitability through the roof when compared like-for-like with the same period last year.
Exciting news regarding plans for our second data centre are set for release to the public very soon, so please keep your eyes on our blog and all other industry news outlets for more information as it breaks.
Netwise Hosting have been voted into the top 10 hosts in the Best Dedicated Server category for October 2013, by leading hosting consumer guide HostReview.
This award comes to us again this month, having received the same accolade from HostReview in July and January 2013, and November 2012. We were also placed in the top 10 overall for the year in 2012.
We work very hard to earn these awards, which we hope illustrates our commitment to our customers.
