  • Key Features


    The purpose built facilities are protected by physical security measures designed by the Police Crime Prevention Unit and Merseyside Fire and Civil Defence Authority.

    Security measures include external and internal IPCCTV systems monitoring the perimeter of the buildings and key internal locations within each environment. The IPCCTV is continuously monitored by Stack Security Operations Centre (SSOC) engineers and recorded in HD digital format.

    Building ingress and egress is controlled by an electronic access system linked to central station monitoring and to Police and Fire services less than two miles from both locations. Both sites are situated outside of flood plains and are in very low risk seismological terrains.

    Physical and Cyber Intrusion Detection and Prevention services run continuously on all connections to the centres with your choice of Anti-Virus in addition to ours.

    By providing UPS and hot-standby generator support for mains supply, together with multiple independent cooling systems, our wholly owned, secure, purpose built data centres give customers the peace of mind and confidence that their applications and data are available 24 x 7 x 365.

    Diverse Internet connectivity with BGP failover triangulation between data centres protects against outages.

    With robust security in place and with high availability, Stack Group deliver a secure, enterprise class colocation service - at a fraction of the usual cost.
