C4L Signs Three-Year Deal With Pulsant

READING, England, April 2, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --



Investment in upgrading Maidenhead Data Centre facility brings benefits to customers

Pulsant, the cloud computing, managed hosting and colocation expert, has announced long-term client C4L has renewed its contract with the company by signing a three-year deal. C4L is a provider of colocation, connectivity, cloud and communications and currently has a large footprint within Pulsant's Maidenhead Data Facility.

The company has been a client for four years and in that time has added to the services that Pulsant provides, initially making use of the Maidenhead campus before expanding to Pulsant's Milton Keynes facility. These services include colocation, power supply and connectivity along three wavelengths between sites in Maidenhead, Milton Keynes and London.

"We have a significant presence in Maidenhead with a number of racks there, and we host several of our clients at this campus," says Simon Mewett, CEO, C4L. "By committing to a new three-year deal we are, in effect, committing to the Maidenhead site. It offers us a cost-effective destination outside of London, with excellent connectivity between the site and the city with low latency. It is also an excellent disaster recovery facility to support our other sites.

"The recent multi-million pound investment that Pulsant has put into the Maidenhead upgrade has made the latest technology available to us and enables us to pass those benefits onto our clients."

Upgrades to the Maidenhead campus include electrical and mechanical improvements, enhanced connectivity into and out of the facility, and an expansion of the company's risk management framework. A new UPS - uninterruptible power supplies - architecture, new plant rooms for the devices, separate LV and UPS switch rooms, and a new area to house the UPS batteries have been built. This ensures that Pulsant is providing an N+1 redundant power supply to all racks with single and dual fed supplies from new distribution points up to 6kw.

Further upgrades are also taking place, including the inclusion of 32amp and dual fed rack space, customer areas for meetings and downtime, as well as build room and secure storage facilities.  

"In addition to the upgrade, over the years we've had excellent service from the remote hands support team at Maidenhead. They are an experienced and knowledgeable team who know our business and can quickly assist us and implement what we need," concludes Mewett.

Enterprises are moving to the cloud faster than most of us in security expected. CIOs are going from 0 to 100 in cloud adoption and leaving security teams in the dust.

When cloud breaches occur, whether active compromise or a publicly accessible database, the blame must fall on both service providers and users. In his session at 21st Cloud Expo, Ben Johnson, C...
