‘LDeX1′ is a 22,000sq ft premium quality, carrier neutral colocation facility in North West London, well within the boundaries of the M25 but outside of the congestion zones. Ideally located at the foot of the M1 motorway LDeX1 also offers ease of access from the North, the A5, the M4, the A406 and the M40.
Local transport links include the Northern tube line, overground rail and a variety of bus routes.
The site is surrounded by 2.5m security fencing and comprehensive CCTV systems which report images to on-site security & a specialist third party monitoring centre for an additional layer of protection. Virtual tripwires, armed at certain times of the day, protect the boundaries and provide immediate intruder threat alerts to our security guards and send automatically generated images direct to the local police where a threat is identified. Facial recognition biometric systems and volumetric man-trap portals work with our secure access procedures to control secure access to all areas of the data centre.
Our onsite private substation received 2MW of electrical power from two independent primary upstream substations for maximum mains resilience. Every rack within the data centre is provided with truly diverse A+B feeds as standard. With N+N UPS protection, your rack power is reserved on 2 x diverse UPS banks for complete fail over capabilities - far more resilient than N+1 alternatives. Diesel generator power is always on standby with 6500 litres of fuel on site and 24/7 replenishment contracts in place.
LDeX data centres utilise the very best in cooling and direct heat channelling technology to deliver and manage cold air flow with maximum efficiency. All areas of the data centre benefit from N+1 cooling resilience and we can cool up to 10kW per rack. Bespoke cold aisle containment and the use of blanking plates ensures best practices are adhered to.
