Last month, the National Grid warned that households and businesses could experience a series of three-hour power cuts this winter.
It comes amid growing fears of a national power outage if Vladimir Putin shuts off gas supplies from Russia and Britain experiences a cold snap.
Many small businesses don’t have any plans in place to deal with such an event, especially those who host their own on-site server rooms or depend on others who also have little or no backup systems in place.
Baltic are experiencing a large demand in customers moving away from on-premise server rooms. Many local businesses are realising that if the power cuts come, the’re office and back end systems will be unable to function correctly, affecting both staff within the office and homeworkers who are connected to it.
Baltic offer a wide range of options for customers wanting to have resilience in place by moving their infrastructure into our collocation facility, with packages starting from just £99 per month on a monthly rolling contract.
Our co-location data centres have UPS backup systems, generator backup while we also generate our own renewable power to help keep services up and live throughout the predicted blackouts.
Quite often, our rack prices come in lower than the on-premise cost of power, cooling and office rent anyway, so for many, it’s a no-brainer.
