Steve Rodgie, Project Director, Global Bank, Welwyn Garden City data centre construction.
“We’ve engaged 8 Solutions early in the construction process. As soon as the Shell and Core were in place, we’ve had a daily presence of their technicians on site for a while, “policing” the main entrance to the main data hall and also decontaminating local areas within the hall after electrical works, rack installs etc. We felt it was key to ensure contractors weren’t trampling contamination throughout the hall and also the Bank’s IT team wanted (and needed) a hall ready for their hardware to be commissioned in so we needed 8 Solutions on site for a period of time rather than a one-off. The plan is an enhanced builders clean from 8 Solutions following their daily presence, and once all active works are finished, a full specialist deep clean to get the hall ready for the IT team. 8 Solutions has provided us with great information, sending us weekly reports on contamination issues and letting us know where we may not be following Best Practice….definitely the leaders in their field by far.”
Peter Kibble, head of UK data centres, FTSE 250 insurance company
I would never use a general cleaner in one of my data centres in the UK, it’s just too risky and I can’t afford any downtime as my SLA back in to the business is too rigid. 8 Solutions come in and tell me the best way to maintain my data centre and also Best Practices. They clean professionally and always sign-off with my local team before finishing any job. Excellent, I couldn’t recommend them enough”
David Clark, data centre manager, FTSE 100 Banking & Financial Institution.
“8 Solutions is the only data centre Cleaning company we would ever use. Their technicians understand our environment and work in our live data centres regularly. As they’re all security cleared, we can leave them on their own and I can get on with my job without any disruption”
Southern Territory data centre manager at large facilities management company, working on largest telco in the UK.
“I manage the Southern data centre geography for the largest Telco in the UK on behalf of a Facilities Management company and I know my colleagues use 8 Solutions across the whole UK. We manage a large number of data centres and 8 Solutions step up to the job every time. Not only is the cosmetic difference easy to see, power consumption has gone down as the servers now need less cooling as there’s no contamination causing any blockages in the server fans! They also provide us with a professional Raised Access Flooring service and are my first point of call for anything data centre environment related”
