New Data Centre: Grand Open Day Event - 28/04/12

On Friday 27th April 2012, we held an event to mark the official opening of our new Data Centre; a welcome addition to our existing UK data centres.

The event was well attended by over thirty guests who consisted of clients, potential clients and local Member of Parliament Mr George Mudie.

Attendees were treated to a guided tour of the new data centre's facilities, and refreshments were on hand throughout.

Nick Ryder, Technical Manager at CCS (Leeds) Ltd gave a short but entertaining speech, during which he demonstrated, with the help of colleague and MD Peter Knapp, what would happen if the power supply to the Data Centre was disconnected. There was a nervous hush as Peter turned off the main power supply, and then relief as the graphs showed that the generator had sprung into life, thus maintaining continuous power to the data centre.

What made this little demonstration more poignant was that there were a number of CCS's co-location clients at the actual event, and to say that they appeared slightly apprehensive would be an understatement.

All in all it was a great afternoon, and we would like to say a big 'Thank You' to all of those who attended.
