The Stellium Ecosystem

The digital economy increasingly depends on modern datacenters. Remaining current with fast-paced developments in areas such as Big Data, Cloud Computing, and the Internet of Things (IoT) requires the highest levels of availability and operational excellence from datacenter operators. As a result, datacenters are becoming significantly larger in scale and more interconnected in nature.

As an innovative business-technology company, Stellium takes a broad view of the entire technology infrastructure. Our datacenters form a single interconnected and highly dynamic physical ecosystem, comprising space, power, cooling, cabling, Mechanical and Engineering (M&E) assets, and systems (both IT and facilities). Each element exists in close relationship with the others.

Holistically monitoring and managing the vast expanse of interconnectivity and interdependencies in such an environment creates the level of robustness, productivity and innovation necessary to support the challenging needs of today’s workloads.

Stellium will host the most demanding of mission-critical applications, either in one of our wholesale sectors, in individual racks and caged suites, or on our cloud-based platform. To maintain such an advanced environment, we have adopted new ways of thinking about infrastructure: in particular, Stellium works closely with its ecosystem partners including: Cundall, Aqua Comms, Zayo, BT, Virgin Media, IDS, Ekkosense and NELEP. Together we continue to seek out new opportunities for improving power, cooling and connectivity, as well as capacity planning, change management, scalability, power densities, and more.

The Regional Hub Model

The Stellium Tier III+ datacenter campus will be home to a range of diverse, but connected, sectors:

  • Global technology, media and telecommunications
  • Major corporate enterprises
  • Central UK government departments
  • Major service providers and outsourcers
  • Local government, academia and SMEs
  • Start-up and entrepreneurial organisations

In addition, the Stellium Metro Fibre Network and the Telco Sector, at its heart, will become a super aggregation point for the major public cloud players as well as a natural home for the peering points that are prevalent in the UK public sector:

  • The NHS National Network (N3)
  • The Public Services Network (PSN)
  • The JANET network for UK academia
