Whilst most people are moving to the cloud and making their comms rooms easier to manage. Many people are still opting to host kit at their premises, this can be for various reasons and whilst Fusion are ideally located for anyone with Huddersfield, Brighouse or the M62 corridor, for those clients further away having a clean and well documented comms cabinets is essential to provide excellent support if something goes wrong.
Take for example this clients comms room cab we inherited, without strict policies and an abundance of spare cables its very easy for cabinets to get in a state. Go and take a look at your cabinet today and if it looks like the before picture. If so we can send our attentive cabling experts in to get your ship in order. Whilst it may look nice and be pleasing on the eye the net result will be a more stable computer network going forward, its a fact that a well documented, well policed comms cabinet, undamaged cables will reduce the number of network loops, incorrect patches and cable pop outs that happen. At the sametime Fusion will check all your UPS’s for faults, also to ensure kit with multiple power supplies don’t have a single point of failure and that any alerting is correctly configured. Once again should a power cut occur its essential that UPS’s arent over loaded and are correctly configure to perform a controlled shutdown at the right time, our MD Jamie Watson even blogged about this over 10 years ago, see here The perfect power backup for servers.
This is also part of our award winning data centre, you can see how proud the Fusion engineering team are running a tight ship. We have 1000’s of people that rely on us to ensure we know exactly where each cable goes and where to look if we have a problem. Without this we wouldn’t be able to offer the 99.98% uptime that we can via our Fusion private cloud.
