Why Choose MI6 as Your International Data Centre?
MI6 – not to be confused with the UK’s secret intelligence service – is no ordinary data centre.
Located in the USA, at the heart of an international data hub, and purpose-built with sustainability and resilience in mind, this data centre offers growing UK-based businesses a gateway into new territories.
Miami is a strategic location in the USA; home to the NAP of the Americas (NOTA). This is the primary internet exchange point between Latin America, the United States and Europe.
Data centres in Miami offer unrivalled performance and connectivity to global markets – and MI6 is chief among them. This particular data centre was chosen as our partner due to its prime location and remarkable resilience – but above all, it’s MI6’s unparalleled connectivity between the Americas and the UK that gives it an advantage.
MI6 runs on Equinix’s IBX platform of data centres, which all hold a wealth of certifications for resilience, business continuity, sustainability, data security and compliance.
deeserve doesn’t just sell rack space at MI6 – we exclusively own and operate the hardware we install at this US data centre for our UK customers. You’ll get a custom-designed Private Cloud solution at MI6 to help your business reach new markets faster, with total compliance and data security.
Miami is an Unmatched Data Centre Location
1525 NW 98th Court, International Corporate Park, Doral, Florida.
It might not be the most glamorous address in the world – but it’s got all the right connections.
Miami is ranked one of the top-five most connected cities in the world, and it’s a key convergence point for submarine cable systems. This gives data centres in Miami some of the fastest, most secure routes to global markets for UK businesses.
MI6 provides the lowest possible latency connection between Central, South America and the USA – as well as the fastest route to Europe and the UK. This gives companies based in the UK an ideal hub from which to expand operations.
Importantly, you’ll gain data residency and compliance with local businesses when handling highly sensitive and confidential data. A deeserve installation at MI6 gives you total confidence, while giving you local performance at international scale.
Relax – Your Data’s Safe, Night and Day
MI6 was built to survive. It stands well above the floodplain, with redundancies for mains power from two independent utility feeds. This is connected by uninterrupted power supplies to overkill levels of backup generator support.
The building itself is highly secure, with trained officers on site 24 hours a day. Nobody can access the facility without authorisation, and CCTV keeps a record of everything for 90 days.
Florida is a notoriously hot and humid place, which would present a challenge to any ordinary data centre – but MI6 houses a huge, N+2 redundant DX (direct expansion) cooling system. This precisely controls temperature and humidity, while consuming less power. In fact, MI6 carries ISO 14001 certification for sustainability among its long list of credentials.
On top of the site’s built-in safety measures, deeserve provides customers with full support – 24 hours a day, 365 days a year – and so does the MI6 data centre. So, you’ll always have someone to help, no matter what time zone you’re in.
