Adsborough Update 1

Work is commencing this week at our Adsborough mast with the installation of critical cooling and uninterruptable power supplies. Work has already been undertaken to security harden the site with further work being planned to install further rack space for our ‘ServerFarm’ initiative.

Our green credentials means we only buy power from renewable sources and we use solar and wind generation for backup battery charging. Natural cooling without the use of refrigerants and zero waste to landfill. We’re also encouraging the move of tech jobs out of London and into rural Somerset.

This site is one of many planned that will create a hub of data activity, from secure private network, through to backups and caching locally to the client. In the event of a disaster, there wont be the long wait for data to download from the cloud. We’ll have the backup on disk and delivered same day.

Test & Trace

We work in the community and at homes and businesses across our region. In the event that an actual or suspected case of COVID-19 is identified following a home visit by one of our engineers, we may be required to share the following information with the NHS as part of the NHS Test and Trace operation:  

  • Your Name
  • Date and time of the engineers appointment
  • Your phone number

We will let you know before we do, once provided, NHS Test and Trace may use these details to contact you in line with their processes and procedures. For more details about the NHS Test and Trace, please see the UK government’s NHS Test and Trace: How It Works guidance

It is important to let us know if you contract symptoms of COVID-19 prior to any arranged home visit by one of our engineers. Please also let us know if you suspect that you may have come into contact with COVID-19 or are presenting with any COVID-19 symptoms. This allows us to keep you, our other customers and our engineers safe.
