We utilise a second datacentre based in Manchester where customer environments are synchronised by the hour to ensure, in the event of disaster, that customer environments are still available.
Each Nutanix cluster contains 4 nodes. All data is replicated across 3 nodes, utilising the 4th (passive) node to automatically self-heal any server failure in real-time, ensuring server resilience.
A high-availability pair of leaf switches provides cross-meshed connectivity (A&B streams) to each Nutanix cluster.
Each leaf switch is cross meshed to the spine switches which are also configure to be HA.
With a capacity of over 400 cabinets and 80 desks, maintained by N+1 cooling and humidity control, our solutions are backed by award winning onsite Managed Services and flexible Cloud technology.
Firstnet's Data Centre utilises a single 11 kV power supply with capacity for 3.5 MVA. Powered by N+1 6.3 MVA continuous standby generator with 72 hours of diesel storage, our Colocation facility accommodates over 400 cabinets at 1,440 kW with option to upgrade to 2,160 kW
N+1 fresh air make-up pressurisation with close humidity controls to technical spaces optimises the performance of the server equipment.
Cabinets are cooled via chilled water down flow units (CRACs) configured for N+1.
