100% Power or a year’s service fees back – Volta

Have you had problems recently with your datacentre power? Considering alternatives? then look no further – Volta will offer a whole year of service fees back if power drops to less than the 100% SLA guaranteed.

Co-location provider Volta Data Centres has introduced a service-level agreement (SLA) that will see customers reimbursed if ever the racks housed in its facilities lose power.

The company’s Platinum Power SLA will see affected customers receive a full-year of free service credit if the power being supplied to their racks falters even for a fraction of a second, the company claimed.

Speaking to Computer Weekly at the DatacenterDynamics Converged conference in London, Volta Data Centres managing director Jon Arnold said the company is the first in the industry to offer an SLA of this nature, and it is indicative of the level of service datacentre customers are demanding these days.

“We’re uniquely positioned in that London has got some new 30kV power rings, and we’re uniquely positioned on two, so we’ve got two resilient rings and our two 33kV transformers,” he said.

“With that setup, we have a level of super resiliency in place before we even need to use batteries and generators, and are already able to offer 100% power availability.”
