Next Connex will deliver diversely routed ultra-low latency (sub 0.4ms) 10Gb wave length services into Aegis Data’s Aegis One data centre, enabling over 200 carriers to be present.
Next Connex is proud to continue its on-going commitment into providing flexible, high bandwidth & high availability connectivity to data centres throughout the UK. Using a unique Layer-1 network, Next Connex can provide extremely low-latency links, connecting the modern data centre to any carrier with a presence on or near its network.
Bob Griffiths, MD of Next Connex said, “We are very excited to be working with Aegis Data. Very few providers have specifically scoped their data centres for the High Density Systems of tomorrow. In that respect Aegis Data is ahead of the curve, capable of supporting even the most demanding of platforms in terms of both power and cooling, as well as offering a level of scalability that separates them from the data centre crowd.”
Next Connex has rapidly expanded its network whilst retaining the agility to deliver 10Gb waves with lead times as short as 5 working days across its growing estate of data centres, thus ensuring that delivery of both network and colocation at Aegis Data are available to your business with unrivalled speed of delivery.
Gerald Pawsey, CEO of Aegis Data said, “We chose Next Connex to be our network infrastructure partner because they are able to design and deliver a scalable, ultra-low latency, diverse, dedicated open access fibre ring, with multiple IP transit routes, that allows us to offer our customers network connectivity at London prices”.
The Aegis data centre road map will empower its customers, be they Managed Service Providers or Mid-Enterprise companies, with the ability to design and customise an optimum data centre environment to improve rack population levels and deliver better efficiencies in a future proof environment. Its premise is to enable its customers to deliver more from less by increasing utilisation through the better use of available space, power and cooling.
With separate feeds from the upstream national grid, a 6.2MVA dedicated power supply has already been delivered to site. The managed N+1 configured facility will provide a Tier 3+ infrastructure to service a net technical area of 16,000ft². Using free air-cooling, the facility will deliver a ‘power usage effectiveness’ (PUE) of 1.2 and provide power densities from 4 to 40kW per rack. This will allow customers the flexibility and scalability to match IT load to power, thereby greatly reducing costs.
The combination of a new and innovative data centre like Aegis Data with an Open Access connectivity partnership from Next Connex means that it is no longer necessary to maintain a costly presence in London’s main carrier exchanges. Previous limitations such as the network costs and latency to data centres outside of the Docklands are no longer a factor, meaning that consumers need not compromise when selecting a data centre.
