Sentry42 Launches New Gatehouse Data Centre

Sentry42 announces the launch of one of the most secure, reliable and environmentally-advanced data centres in the UK. Sentry42's 60,000 sqft newly refurbished Gatehouse Data Centre is located close to Norwich and will open to customers on May 11th.

Sentry42 is the colocation business of Migration Solutions, the independent computer room and data centre specialist consultancy responsible for the 12 million refurbishment and ongoing management of the facility that previously belonged to a major insurance organisation.

The Gatehouse will provide facilities for companies from across sectors looking to outsource their hosting requirements to a flexible facility which can accommodate growth. It offers N+1 power redundancy with diverse supply to all cabinets and the back-up of UPS and generators with enough fuel to run the entire data centre for up to eight days at full load.

The Gatehouse's telecommunications connectivity offers access to multiple providers via managed Telco Interchange Rooms (TIRs) including BT, Cable & Wireless and Virgin Media, all of which take fibre onto the site. The facility's resilience and connectivity is matched by its environmental credentials which include free cooling chillers providing over 8,000 hours of energy-free cooling per year.
