Next Generation Data (NGD) announced today a rapid network connectivity deployment service aimed at helping channel partners co-locating at its NGD Europe mega-data centre to confidently build, configure and test their new implementations prior to moving in.
Instead of waiting for full network services becoming available from their chosen providers, NGD’s new Transition and Transformation Platform is a free-of-charge service for three months and provides fast deployment of essential network services direct to partner premises for rack configuration and testing purposes.
This follows the recent opening of NGD’s new colocation hall at its giant data centre facility near Newport, South Wales, providing channel partners with a highly secure, scalable and price competitive solution to housing single or multiple racks.
“One of the challenges of a new installation is that lead time for network services can be very long,” explained Steve Davis, NGD’s sales director. “To avoid this we can offer our partners some immediate bandwidth on a short term basis to allow their racks to be fully loaded, tested and ready to go just as soon as their network service goes live.”
As part of the company’s channel launch promotion, resellers installing racks by 28th February will also receive a three months rent-free period plus a free tablet PC.
Purpose-designed for allowing racks to be easily installed and operational within hours, the new hall also offers a number of other benefits including an unprecedented supply of power for allowing high density solutions, the latest cooling and energy management systems, and a wide choice of on-site high bandwidth connectivity.
Supporting in excess of 130 racks, the new colocation facility is the ninth data hall to be completed at the giant 750,000 sq ft NGD Europe data centre which opened three years ago. All previous halls in NGD Europe have been custom built for major global enterprise organisations requiring individual self-contained facilities.
