Pixel Internet Data Centre
Power Supply and Backup
Each rack has two independent power feeds, fed from two diverse connections to the national grid.
Should one or both of these feeds fail 4 x 300kVA Riello UPS (N+1) battery backup systems will cover immediate power requirements. All power to the cabinets is supplied via the UPS to maintain clean supply to the servers.
If mains power is not restored within 10 seconds 3 x N+1 diesel powered generators will start providing full continuous power to the data centre.
Spare fuel for the generators is stored on-site and contracts are in place with fuel companies to deliver continuous emergency fuel for a virtually unlimited amount of time.
Fire protection is provided by the FM200 Fire Suppression System which fills the sealed data centre with gas to extinguish any fire quickly without the use of water and without damage to any equipment.
The data centre is fully climate controlled with N+1 Stultz DX Cybercool Air Conditioning Systems. The system monitors and controls the temperature and humidity levels.
Drip sensors located below floor monitor for any leaks in the system. Cold air is forced underneath raised flooring into the bottom of each server rack, and vacuumed out of the top providing maximum cooling efficiency. The position of each server rack/apparatus is calculated by a dedicated deployment team to further optimise cooling efficiency.
46u high 1500mm wide x 1000mm deep, cable management system and 80% mesh doors. Cabinets are kept locked at all times.
The data centre is monitored by cctv both externally and internally. All CCTV images are recorded and stored for 3 months.
The building is surrounded by a 8ft perimeter fence. gates are locked outside of normal business hours.
Secure Fob Access
There are two locking doors to go through for access to each of the separate data halls within DC2. These are locked and can only be opened using Secure Fobs which are only held by named staff.
Pixel Internet - The Technology
At Pixel Internet, we know that it's important to use the best and most advanced technologies to be able to provide you with consistently affordable and reliable web hosting solutions. Here is some additional information about the hosting technology that we are currently using to provide you with the best web hosting service in the world. Please contact us with any questions or comments about this information.
Dell Servers for Ultimate Security
We are committed to using the most state of the art technology to build our web server platform. It is for this reason that we've chosen to use all Dell Servers in our web server platform. We know how frustrating it can be to try to log on to your professional or personal website control panel only to find out that the server is down and you can't do anything about it.
To prevent this from ever happening to our customers, all data is stored in two large network disk arrays. Data is automatically synchronised between the arrays so that in the event of an array failing the remaining array continues to serve data to the servers with no downtime. Even though we use Dell servers, which are some of the best in the business, a failure is always possible, which is why our platform is designed in such a way that if any server fails another server automatically and without delay takes over that server's workload. This means that you should be able to enjoy uninterrupted service.
Our current server specification is as follows:
Dual Quad Core Intel® Xeon® 3.16GHz with 2X6MB Cache
8 GB RAM
Dual 136 GB SCSI Drive (for the operating system)
RAID Mirroring (for the operating system)
Dual Power Supplies
Dual Gigabit Network Adapters
Our network arrays operate RAID, a way of configuring a system so a disk can fail with no impact to data. As explained above we also operate our network arrays in mirrored pairs so a whole array can fail with no impact. Each array is also backed up each night to a separate backup cluster which is then written to tape and stored offsite.
Blazing Speeds with the Cisco Gigabit Network
Besides reliable, secure web hosting, we know that our customers want the fastest server speeds possible. In order to provide you with web hosting solutions that work fast and correctly every time, Pixel Internet is proud to utilise the Cisco Gigabit Network for all of our switches and routers. Although most other web hosting providers can only provide speeds of around 100 MB per second, our superior technology allows our customers to enjoy speeds of 1000 MB per second. Combined with our CAT6 network cables and Ethernet connections, you will be able to provide your site visitors with a very pleasant and reliable web browsing experience.
