Leading UK Retailer Gains ModCel Containerised Data Centre from Secure I.T. Environments


A range of works and ModCel Containerised Data Centre delivered to bolster the IT infrastructure and supply chain of one of the nation’s best-known retailers

London, 26 February 2019Secure I.T. Environments Ltd, one of the UK’s leading design and build companies of modular and containerised data centres including refurbishment of existing data centres, has completed a range of works for one of the country’s best known retailers including the provision of one of its industry leading ModCel Containerised Data centres as a new primary data centre.

The project included all related groundworks, including underground ducting for services, inspection pits, and laying diverse cable routes for power supplies and fibre across more than 500m of land. Additionally, Secure I.T. Environments was asked to conduct a full structural cabling audit of the existing IT infrastructure, and upgrade the existing site’s power supply, UPS, air conditioning, access control and security systems.

The new data centre will greatly improve the resilience of the retailer’s logistics network, which is entirely dependent on its IT infrastructure to meet the delivery requirements of its stores and customers, an area where failures can have a direct impact on sales, customer satisfaction. The highly competitive nature of the retail sector means retailers must do all they can to shore up their IT infrastructure, avoiding bottlenecks and points of critical failure in their supply chains.

A spokesperson for the retailer, said, “Secure I.T. Environments has completed our project with a great deal of professionalism. So much so that we expanded the scope of the project to assess other aspects of our existing data centre facility whereby additional M&E infrastructure was installed to ensure continuity in the event of any component failure. A containerised data centre approach for the primary data centre has proved to be an excellent choice for our business and the location in which we needed to house the facility.”

The ModCel Containerised Data Centre specification for this project included Resilient Data Centre energy efficient air-conditioning in N+1 configuration, Riello MPW UPS, a built-in 65KVA generator, 252U of server space, raised access flooring, environmental monitoring, biometric access control, CCTV and Novec fire suppression.

Chris Wellfair, Projects Director at Secure I.T. Environments, said “Our ModCel Containerised Data Centres are leading the industry in giving customers complete flexibility over their physical IT infrastructure, without making any compromise on technical specification. “Whether as a primary data centre, portable facility, or one that needs to be shipped to another country, ModCel Containerised Data Centres can be delivered ready to take on workloads in just six to eight weeks.”
