Keysource has been selected to provide maintenance and support for critical data centre plant and infrastructure at the Science and Technology Facilities Council (STFC) Daresbury Laboratory facility in Warrington.
Under the terms of the contract, Keysource will provide planned preventative maintenance (PPM) along with 24-hour help desk and technical and emergency response to site in the event of any issues.
Keysource recently completed a data centre upgrade at the Daresbury Laboratory facility, which involved the live operation upgrade of the data centre facility, including lifecycle replacement of critical power, cooling and protection systems.
Jon Healy, operations director at Keysource, said, “STFC carries out research in science and engineering, and funds UK research and innovation in areas including particle physics, nuclear physics, space science and astronomy. As such the security of its data is key and we are pleased to be supporting them in achieving their objectives of resilience and sustainability.”
