Critical environment specialist Keysource has been appointed by a leading cruise ship operator to design and install a new data centre at its new headquarters in Uxbridge.
The contract will see Horsham-based Keysource deliver a turnkey data centre system to support the client’s business critical IT services associated with the operation of 14 cruise ships – including performance monitoring and proactive identification of potential issues.
The project follows a decision by the client to relocate its staff from Italy and central London to consolidate its operations and support future growth. In addition, the system will also house data for the recordings generated by the client’s UK contact centre which receives calls from new and existing customers around the world.
Keysource’s appointment will see it lead on key design objectives including the support of flexible IT requirements and the ability for the data centre to work efficiently at low loads in line with business requirements.
Jon Healy, associate director at Keysource, said: “This new solution will be developed in line with the latest regulations and industry standards. It will guarantee long term reliability and availability of critical services to the business but ensure they are delivered in a sustainable and efficient way, maximising the return on investment.”
