Ark Continuity, BladeRoom and Red Engineering awarded as Finalist in Uptime Institute's 2012 Green Enterprise IT Awards Competition.
The companies were recognised for the rapid deployment of Data Centre P1 at Ark's Spring Park Data Centre Campus which delivers one of the most efficient data centres in the UK and as a result, one of the most cost effective hosting environments ever.
Ark Continuity welcomes UK Cabinet Office Minister to the next phase of Spring Park Data Centre Campus for a tour of an operational BladeRoom Data Centre.
During the visit the Minister was able to see how Ark has developed a model for data centre provision which can save organisations up to 40% of their costs through lower energy and running costs while maintaining the highest levels of security.
Leighton-owned data centre builder Metronode is close to completing the first stage of a world-first modular data centre fit-out in the outer suburbs of Melbourne.
Metronode has signed a deal with British engineering firm BladeRoom to distribute and manufacture its unique design of modular data centre.
