Emergency air conditioning hire keeps police servers operational

A data centre outage, by its very nature, will cause great inconvenience to any business or institution affected. But when the organisation on the receiving end of such an undesirable scenario is the headquarters of a large territorial police force, the scope for disruption is magnified.

Of course, contemporary technology and modern ways of working mean that important data is backed up on a cloud reserve or remote site, preventing information from being compromised or permanently lost. Notwithstanding that, it goes without saying that our clients who have encountered this situation would prefer to avoid the panic associated with server breakdown.

These were accompanied by two ASF50 cooing fans, which were situated near the PAC units to help circulate cold air.

In order to manage a project efficiently, it is important that even the most seemingly insignificant details are considered before a solution is tailored.

At Andrews Sykes, we savour opportunities to get involved with the more high-profile or logistically challenging jobs because they allow us to demonstrate our true capability. Everyday hires provide us with sustenance, but it is the way we handle largescale projects that really sets us apart.
