Cabling

Reliable connections mean swift and reliable communications

All data centres have one thing in common: the need for cabling so devices can communicate with one another. A well designed cabling system is essential to ensure a dependable and available IT system.

Because data centres are dynamic environments, constantly growing and evolving, they demand a high density and flexible cabling infrastructure which can accommodate growing IT demands without disruption.

Datacentre UK can devise the optimal cable architecture whatever the size of your facility, using high quality, industry standard cabling products from manufacturing partners.

Datacentre UK structured cabling solutions for every data centre

Practically every device in your data centre is connected to other devices, usually with multiple cables to provide back up (or 'redundancy'). Datacentre UK can optimise the efficiency and cost-effectiveness with the most appropriate cable architecture and choice of cabling products for your environment.

The larger the data centre, the more detailed and complex this exercise becomes. A datacentre for a medium-sized company may have between 50 and 100 servers; a datacentre in a large financial institution may have several hundred. As a result, cable counts can easily reach the tens of thousands.

Datacentre UK provide diverse data centre cabling solutions

Our expertise in a wide range of size and type of data centre and network room means Datacentre UK can recommend the ideal cabling solution for your facility:

  • Fibre Optic Technology
  • 10GPlus
  • Cat6Plus
  • Enhanced Fibreplus

Relocation

The physical relocation of any IT system is highly complex and requires expert planning and implementation. Datacentre UK has the project management, logistical and technical expertise to ensure a smooth relocation, regardless of distance. Over the years we have performed many relocations involving all types of servers and associated equipment, including those manufactured by APC, Hewlett Packard, Rittal, Dell, Cisco, EMC and IBM.

Your Datacentre UK project manager will be a valuable part of your relocation team, helping you to identify the criticality of each server, completing population diagrams and ensuring back-ups are carried out. All items to be moved are professionally packed, safely secured and then transported on air-ride tail-lift vehicles which cushion their contents from excessive movement.

Load Testing

Is your data centre in good shape to handle peak loads, or will it fail you? The only way to be sure is to have it thoroughly load tested. Datacentre UK provides full AC and DC on-site load testing as part of our complete system inspection service.

We can also undertake load bank testing as an option to our standard commissioning and maintenance procedures, or as part of our battery testing procedure. This enables you to identify potential areas for concern under controlled test conditions, for example whether your UPS is correctly connected and capable of supporting a critical load

Cleaning

We offer a broad range of datacentre cleaning services that can be tailored to your precise needs. Every one of our Environmental Consultants has the experience and know-how to assess your facility thoroughly, from which we can devise a cleaning package that will help reduce the threat of expensive downtime and save you money in both the short- and long-term.

Our totally flexible approach to working hours, plus careful supervision of our operatives, helps to ensure minimal disruption to the normal running of your datacentre. We carefully pre-select all cleaning materials brought into the computer suite; these include specialist anti-static solutions that are custom-designed for datacentre environments plus triple-filtered vacuums capable of 99.997% @ 0.3 microns dust extraction.
