Offsite Data Centre Developments - completion of Phase 2

[04 February 2018]

Pase 2 of the Offsite Data Centre Programme has been completed, and we have established the infrastructure platforms which will underpin the move of our business services to that location.  This move will provide much greater resilience and the ability to manage those services with reduced impact. The completed work is an essential step in provisioning our services to meet our aspirational Service Level Agreements of Gold, Silver and Bronze.

We will now move to Phase 3 of the Data Centre programme, to plan how and when services can be migrated. Some work is still needed before we can start the migration of existing services, as well as the implementation of new services. However, the completion of Pase 2 is a significant achievement and has engaged staff in considerable effort over past year.
