Databarracks' systems are kept in some
of the most secure data centres in the world. Our data centres are
state-of-the-art nuclear bunkers which were designed to protect
command and control systems in the event of a nuclear war. Both of
our data centres are ISO27001 and PCI compliant.
The Bunker is designed to keep digital data available to you at
all times. The underground diesel tanks are able to keep the plant
running for three months without refuelling. Additionally, dual UPS
systems capable of running the entire server facility for forty
hours in the event of a power outage help to ensure that there is
no interruption to service during switchover.
Our online data storage solutions can bring you peace of mind as
daily connection to our servers is simple and secure. Online
restoration times for data are faster and more reliable than
The data centres are patrolled 24 hours a day, 7 days a week,
and are run by security experts. The security of the centres is
demonstrated by the fact that other bunkers of the same design are
still in use today to protect British skies in the event of an
We provide you with free technical support 24 hours a day, 365
days a year to ensure you're up and running immediately in case of
disaster. You can be safe in the knowledge your data is ready when
you need it.
Our primary data centre is both
ISO27001 and PCI compliant. This impenetrable fortress is situated
on 18 acres of land, outside the M25 and sits 30 metres below
ground. It has concrete walls three metres thick and steel blast
proof doors weighing over two tons. All systems are inside faraday
cages protecting against Electro-magnetic Pulses (EMP) and tempest
(digital eves-dropping). Backup and storage servers are protected
by an in-rack gas fire suppression system.
There are multiple independent fibre links to the data centre
entering at four separate access points to ensure data is
continually streamed. This is controlled by a fault tolerant core
network that can re-route information if an error occurs anywhere
on the network.
Layered on top of this physical inaccessibility is a 24-hour
watch with guard dogs, CCTV and a series of sophisticated access
controls that offer the ultimate in protection from a myriad of
attacks, including crackers, terrorist attack, electro-magnetic
pulse, electronic eavesdropping, HERF weapons and solar flares.
In 1995 £60 million was spent renovating the site surpassing the
specifications of the most resilient Tier 4 commercial data
The bunker is designed to keep digital data available to you at
all times. There are sufficient underground diesel tanks to keep
the plant running for a solid three months without refueling, and
dual UPS systems capable of running the entire server facility for
forty hours in the event of a power outage, to ensure there is no
interruption to service during switchover.
We run our hosting operations from cold war era nuclear bunkers,
which are state-of-the-art installations, purpose built with
security in mind and originally constructed as an integral part of
the UK's strategic communications network.
The experience of our technical team in providing secure
cryptographic solutions, combined with the Bunkers high level of
physical security and client identification procedures, offer the
ultimate in protection from a myriad of attacks.
We advocate to all our customers a specific set of security
procedures and processes, to help ensure the integrity of your
Data vaulting centre infrastructure
The core principles behind the design of the data vaulting
centre are resilience and redundancy, with the aim of removing all
single points of failure.
