When offshore installation experts Seajacks needed to increase protection of their vital data, they chose MIGSOLV. The Great Yarmouth based company were able to benefit from:
Established in 2006, Seajacks provide jack-up vessels which help install, maintain and decommission offshore wind turbines and oil & gas rigs.
They’ve experienced strong growth and now operate five purpose-built vessels which have contributed to major North Sea projects including Walney, Greater Gabbard, Sheringham Shoal and East Anglia One wind farms.
The issues faced by Seajacks may be familiar to many businesses operating in and around the energy sector. Seajacks wanted to remain in control of their IT hardware and maintain their ability to access the equipment whilst increasing the physical security of the IT estate and their data.
Concerned by physical and cyber threats, they wanted to increase protection and develop a more robust disaster recovery plan having identified that keeping IT and data on their own premises as being a weakness. Wanting to retain control of the physical IT, they decided to move to the colocation environment, rather than adopt a cloud solution.
With security and availability being key attributes for Seajacks, MIGSOLV was able to offer its colocation service – in one of the most secure data centres in the UK.
The Gatehouse data centre provides for 100% uptime of power and cooling. To ensure physical security is catered for, the data centre offers a multi-layered security system with iris recognition and an onsite 24×7 Security Team. Each customer rack is secured with a proximity card and has a secure partition between adjacent customers meaning the physical security protecting Seajacks assets are never compromised.
MIGSOLV provides 24×7 ‘Smart Hands’ support for fault diagnosis, hardware replacement and upgrades from its service desk, staffed by skilled engineers, ensuring effective and quick support should the need arise.
