The purpose-built Tier 3-equivalent data centre in Newbridge features seven data halls. It provides a high-quality and secure location with 24/7 onsite support. Pulsant does everything possible to prevent unauthorised access to the buildings, as well as to the rack housings. It maintains CCTV cameras and systems in place to identify and react to threats so that infrastructure is protected from theft, damage or interference.
For Scotland, local conditions were conducive to setting up the exchange as LINX elected to work with technology partner Pulsant. The IX Scotland infrastructure is hosted in Pulsant’s tier 3 datacentre in South Gyle. The site is ISO 27001 accredited, features 24/7 security and is linked to the company’s 14 other datacentre facilities via an interconnected fabric, ensuring resilience and high performance. It is also carrier-neutral, making it very attractive for the IXScotland project.
