[Cable Bahamas](http://www.cablebahamas.com) recently unveiled its new data centre in Freeport, Grand Bahama. The state-of-the-art facility has been designed to provide commercial clients with hosting and business continuity/disaster recovery services. It complements the firm’s existing data centre at its Robinson Road headquarters complex in Nassau, New Providence.
Businesses on each island can now locate their back-up servers and data storage on the other island; although more than 120 miles apart, they are connected by the company’s fibre optic data network.
The new facilities are housed within a secure concrete and steel structure, and supported by dual UPS (uninterruptable power supply) systems, as well as backup generators, redundant water-chilled air handling systems, and smoke and fire suppression systems. It provides clients with full rack and half rack space options.
The centre was designed, built and maintained by Cable Bahamas’ own Bahamian engineering team, and is constantly monitored by the company’s network operations centre. Edris Wilson is the operations manager at the Cable Bahamas Freeport office. He says *“We are delighted that a data centre of this kind is on the island of Grand Bahama. With its state-of-the-art design and infrastructure, our clients can feel safe and secure.*”
