Netcetera Successfully Achieves ISO14001 Certification
Posted by David on 09 August 2013 12:06 PM

Netcetera are very proud to announce that it has achieved ISO 14001 certification, the environmental management system standard. The certification is based upon an external validation of the company’s environmental performance with regard to the design, implementation and support of their hosting solutions in its Datacentre and office operations.

The ISO14001 certification maps out a framework for setting up an effective environmental management system for organisations that want to improve resource efficiency, reduce waste and drive down costs. Certification to the standard requires companies to identify and control the environmental impacts of their activities, products and services.  ISO14001 also requires companies to continually improve their environmental performance and implement a systematic approach to setting and achieving environmental targets and objective.

We have a commitment to environmental stewardship and accountability, and we have worked very hard to achieve the ISO14001 certification. Our global client base can be assured that we are committed to help drive improvements in their environmental impact and in the technology solutions and services we recommend to them.

“We work in an industry with its own particular energy challenges and as the world increasingly turns to hosted cloud solutions to meet its computing requirements, we have a heightened responsibility to ensure our solutions are architected, built and maintained in an environmentally responsible manner from the start,” said Tim Cass, Netcetera CTO, “Achieving this standard helps to underpin our Global Sustainability Programme and focus the business on achieving our targets and objectives, not just in terms of energy but wherever we have an environmental impact.”

A continuous cycle of planning, implementing, reviewing and improving the processes and actions that are performed to meet business and environmental goals, provide Netcetera’s clients and partners the assurance that environmental impact is being measured and improved.

As a result of implementing this programme, we have developed a set of ambitious plans to lower our carbon emissions, which will be unveiled over the coming months – stay tunes!

Support for Node.js on Shared Hosting Platform
Posted by David on 01 October 2012 10:34 AM

We are delighted to announce support for Node.js on our Shared hosting platform.

Node.js – or just Node as it’s commonly called – is a server-side javaScript implementation that enables developers to write client side as well as server side code in JavaScript.

To ease the development of complex JavaScript further, Node.js supports the CommonJS standard that allows for modularized development and the distribution of software in packages via the Node Package Manager.

Applications that can be written using Node.js include, but are not limited to Static file servers, Web Application frameworks, Messaging middle ware and Servers for HTML5 multi player games.

“We offered node.js support in our recent WebMatrix 2.0 beta labs sandbox and have received requests for making node.js generally available in our Web Hosting service,” said David Scalzo, Account Manager at Netcetera. “In keeping with our mission to empower developers, we are happy to announce node.js support in our Windows Hosting environment.”

The advantages of Datacentre Colocation outside London
Posted by David on 29 November 2011 02:37 PM

There is a belief in the UK that London forms a core of connectivity, meaning that colocation centres must be located there to take advantage of this perceived highest-speed connection. Furthermore, if an organisation chooses Colocation then the decisions on who provides the service and how an organisation arranges its network can become almost immaterial.

The reality is, we have to base all of our decisions on rational probability and weigh up the pros and cons – there are always advantages and disadvantages to any location, the key is to ensure you are clued-up on the facts and examine what your business needs are.

A recent article by Telstra it has identified that the increasing rise in data centre facilities outside  London is extremely advantageous for customers. The reality is that it all comes down to one fundamental question: do I operate my IT and telecoms in London or elsewhere?  Of course there are many valid arguments for both, however, the latest Financial Services Authority (FSA) guidelines state that financial services companies must have a back-up facility over 40km from their primary facility, making towns outside of London extremely attractive as they can then be more than 40km from Docklands to meet FSA guidelines. Any large metropolitan area, and particularly London as the capital city, will always be more vulnerable to terrorist attacks than remote countryside destinations.

With ever-faster network connections, data communication to and from these centres can be measured in milliseconds, making London’s perceived increased connectivity immaterial in most cases. At the same time, with limitation on space and available power, London can only support a limited number of such centres meaning that the location can command a premium price. Unless a business is based in London, and is in an industry where near-instantaneous communication is essential- such as finance, it tends to be a more cost-effective solution to use a colocation centre outside of London.

There are many positives when looking into a DataCentre outside London, but perhaps cost can be considered as rather important since choosing a data centre outside of London  will have an impact on the price you pay, particularly if you need a lot of electrical power and cooling.  Of course also one could consider it will be a lower risk as housing your equipment outside London is also thought by many to be a lower risk option in terms of terrorist attacks as well as the fact that many newer Data Centres in remote locations are purpose-built rather than conversions of existing buildings.

Netcetera attributes much of its success to the fact that its state-of-the-art Data Centre is based in the Isle of Man – away from the disadvantages that many of its competitors and their clients have faced. The company’s strategic location is a powerful draw for businesses when considering outsourcing their data.  Every company will have its own requirements when it comes to selecting the location of its data centre but some needs are common for almost all users. Reliability, security and support that enables them to focus on their core business, are all key elements that feature highly on the list of priorities for any company but in today, the cost of attached to the data centre location will also grow in importance. This isn’t about a price war however, rather, a consideration of high-end Cloud-based services that put Netcetera at an advantage.
