Progress has been made on a number of areas again this week, most notably the installation of our access control systems.
The past few weeks have seen lots of time spent on stabilising the migrated estate, so in terms of build progress there isn’t a huge amount to report. That said, there has of course been progress in a number of areas, as our efforts to bring the site to total completion continue.
We have now migrated our existing customer base across to the new site, which is a massive milestone for us. As you are probably aware from reading our blog, the site still has some finishing touches to be completed, and lots of system integration work to undertake, however as soon as the site was deemed ready to hold clients, we moved everyone across.
At this moment in time, many clients are still being housed in their Dell racks, as used in Sutton and in the temporary facility in Docklands. These will be swapped over to the new APC cabinets in the coming weeks / months.
This is a monumental milestone in the build project, as the site is now actively handling our live estate at full resilience.
We are now rapidly approaching readiness for initial occupation, with this week seeing completion of the power commissioning, and the deployment of the core network.
This next period of work has seen the cooling system reach completion, and final works start on the data hall side of the power commissioning.
