murphx has opened the doors to its new purpose-built data centre facility on the South Coast. The company says the move marks the start of a ‘new level of customer service as murphx provides access to highly secure, scalable, high power rack and suite environments as well as direct access to the murphx network for lower latency services and high speed access via its upstream carriers and international peers’. The secure data centre also includes options for connectivity to London.
Director Carl Churchill stated, “We are excited to announce the opening of the new murphx data centre, offering 75,000 sq ft of secure space and 15MW of power which is delivered both via resilient power feeds and resilient substations. We are particularly proud of the fact that it is one of the lowest carbon footprint facilities in the UK, with a PUE of just 1.7.”
According to murphx the facility can support up to 25kW (over 100AMP) per rack, and has space for up to 1500 racks. As well as resilient power feeds from multiple points on the national grid, the centre includes the latest safety measures such as VESDA Early Warning Smoke Detection and FM200 Fire Suppression, as well as being manned by security personnel 24×7 alongside perimeter fencing and a secure gated entry system with anti-ram Vee gates.
Churchill added: “With this new data centre we’re able to offer highly secure, carrier class facilities, and it’s fully scalable which means there’s room to grow as your business does. We have the capability to support requirements ranging from 1U through to more than 120 rack secure suites, and can offer all our customers state of the art technology and security as well as meeting rooms and office space on site.”
