Dedicated servers, it’s yours
Talk to us about your BOM dedicated servers?
BOM can provide you with servers and networking equipment from our private data centre in South Wales. You own the server and rent the required physical space to house it within our dedicated data centre.
How it works
We maintain stringent levels of security over your racks and cabinets. They are secured with access controls and looked after (24/7) by our security guards.
We are efficient in our data centres at providing backups and UPS devices to protect against outages, including those caused by natural disaster, fire or flooding.
Economies of Scale
Higher levels of bandwidth at competitive cost.
Data Centre Infrastructure
Take advantage of our data centre infrastructure while maintaining control over upkeep, maintenance and configuration of your servers. You’ll also free up office space and improve your infrastructure cost-effectiveness.
Disaster Recovery & Business Continuity
By placing servers in our data centre rather than in an on-premises communications room, our clients build in an extra layer of disaster recovery in the event of power loss, enabling them to easily recover business critical data.
Low Network Latency
Reliability is significantly higher. Greater protection from power outages and 24/7 staff on site/ on hand should problems arise.
Choosing a bespoke build allows clients to personalise their colocation plan and decide which aspects of their system they want to focus on. You can choose from a range of facilities for individual infrastructures and budgets.
BOM Head Office Infrastructure
BOM’s privately owned and run Cumulus Axis Client Hosting facility
High availability infrastructure located at BOM’s HQ in Hengrove, Bristol. The physical infrastructure of the hosting facility is very powerful and highly redundant.
There is no danger of flooding ta BOM’s Head Office. In addition to the facility’s physical security, the whole of BOM’s ground floor has steel shutters for night-time security.
As BOM’s Cumulus Axis is an independent and privately-owned private cloud host, it allows the tailoring of specific solutions dependent on client requirement.
Full power backup via a 48-hour run-time generator
Dual 8GB / secure Fibre fabric switches configured in high-availability mode for failover
The facility is in a windowless secure block and has a brick construction room
Inergen Fire Suppression system
Extinguishes fire by suppressing oxygen levels to a point where fire cannot combust – resulting in there being no damage to any electronic equipment in the facility.
Keypad entry system
A keypad entry system with a steel constructed secure door is the only entrance to the facility. Authorised personnel only are given the code, currently this is limited to 6 staff, 5 of whom are SC cleared by a police force.
Service Provider License Agreement
Various software vendors have a model known as an SPLA (Service Provider License Agreement). This SPLA allows BOM to lease clients Windows Server and other operating systems, so that clients can run virtual servers on BOM’s high-availability hosted virtualised infrastructure.
UPS power protection in the hosting facility for servers and other devices
Clustered NetScreen firewalls configured in high-availability mode for failover
65TB of Backup Server capacity, scalable up to 180TB
What our clients say
Throughout our 60 years we have helped our clients succeed through IT and Technology, covering a variety of traditional and modern business models across such industries as global catering, protection insurance and SAAS companies.
Thank you to all the team at BOM for all your efforts in getting us successfully moved on the 22nd of December 2018
The BOM Team did a brilliant job on the day, which was made possible by your organisation and engineers input and navigation on the test run shutdown.
So many things could have gone wrong, but it went superbly well and we have been operating successfully from the new site.
As a company we have tried several IT management companies and find they have a delayed responses, never seem to have the answers or it is something you are doing wrong, however since we started using BOM earlier this year they have proven me wrong.
BOM are very responsive generally well under an hour, polite their phone manner is friendly yet professional, helpful and do not make you feel silly for not knowing even some of the simple things as we are not all IT geniuses surprisingly. I have also found with BOM that even after your problem is resolved this is not the end of their care as a day or so later they will make contact to check everything is still ok, and even Katie makes contact unprovoked most weeks to check how things are which is above and beyond all other companies we have used. I would highly recommend BOM for any IT needs, Abbie at Sovereign Fire & Security.
Having a support company that has built and designed our IT infrastructure is a benefit that is hard to overlook.
Because they know our infrastructure so well the response time is great, every time we log the ticket, BOM is able to identify and solve the problem in a timely manner.
I can’t speak highly enough about the all the engineers from BOM. They are always very, helpful friendly and would go an extra mile to fix not only any existing issues but also point any potential problems that could arise in the future.
