Nasstar has chosen SSE Telecoms’ Tier 3+ Hampshire facility to co-locate its hosted desktop infrastructure.
Under Nasstar’s contract with SSE Telecoms for new server rack space, power and communications services, the company will have the capacity to serve many thousands more hosted desktop users which is critical to its rapid continuing growth.
In a strategic move to locate technical equipment in data centres that are geographically far enough apart to remain resilient, SSE Telecoms’ flagship data centre facility was selected to complement Nasstar’s existing London facilities. Nasstar replicates customer and service data between the two data centres using SSE Telecoms’ managed Ethernet services. The SSE Telecoms co-location and communications services ensure Nasstar’s secure hosted desktop service customers receive the service availability, security and resilience they demand. The SSE Telecoms data centre stood out in particular due to the facility’s highly resilient Tier 3+ infrastructure and support for high density rack configurations.
Charles Black, Nasstar’s CEO, said “We undertook considerable due diligence and looked at a number of UK data centre sites. We chose SSE Telecoms facility because it has benefitted from substantial investment and, being operated by a power company, offered a much better power-to-rack space ratio than many others we considered. SSE’s Hampshire facility is acknowledged as a high specification UK co-location with N+1 power and uninterruptible supply. Building our hosted desktop service across two data centres puts us in a very strong position to serve the growing number of companies who are looking for a highly resilient UK based hosted desktop service.”
Chris Jagusz, Managing Director, of SSE Telecoms said “Our ability to provide guaranteed connectivity and power as well as rack space at our Hampshire facility is attracting more and more clients such as Nasstar. We are delighted to win business from a company recognised for its innovation and customer service in hosted desktop services. We look forward to being able to provide Nasstar even more capacity as its business expands.”
