Gosport Town Centre
The move to our services has not only enabled Gosport Town Council to create more space, it has also resulted in improved security
Gosport is a local authority on the South Coast with a population of 80,000 people. Due to the size of Gosport the town suffers from numerous problems usually associated with a city. However, as Gosport do not have city status, the town’s council have to address all issues with a limited budget, meaning that money is always a major consideration in anything they do.
Gosport Town Council contacted us in 2015 as they were in the process of refitting their offices to create a shared open plan space for their team and the local police force. The work meant that their in-house data centre would need to be moved from site in order to create enough room.
After looking into numerous data centres in the area, the council decided to go with Green Co due to the excellent range of features we offer, our dedication to customer service and also our competitive prices. We worked closely with Gosport Town Council to assess costs and supplied a sympathetic quotation which provided everything they required. The final proposal enabled them to re-locate eight of their existing racks and provided a diversely routed interconnect between their offices and our data centre, all within their budget.
The move to our services has not only enabled Gosport Town Council to create more space, it has also resulted in improved security as now their servers are located in an environment where they are monitored, secure and powered 24×7.
As always we provided a complete hands on approach during this project, helping to make the move as seamless and pain free as possible. Both the technical and physical work was completed over a series of weekends to ensure minimum disruption and all work was finished within the agreed time frame. The council now use our rack space and have a leased line with a wireless backup link between their offices and our data centre.
Upon completion Gosport Town Council said that they found us supportive, dynamic, understanding, competent and able. They were impressed that every problem was worked through pragmatically and managed well in advance to a mutually beneficial end goal.
