Vtesse offers short term contracts for London 2012

The firm will provide a data centre and office safe haven outside of London for the duration of the Olympic Games.

A UK company is offering short-term data centre contracts to help business avoid the disruption of the London 2012 Olympic Games.

Vtesse Cirrus is a communications firm based in Hertfordshire. Today it announced the chance for companies located within the Olympic Route Network (ORN) and Paralympic Route Network (PRN) to move out of the capital city for the duration of the games, ensuring restrictions to certain parts of London do not affect their operations.

Firms will be able to sign up to a six month contract from Vtesse Cirrus, giving them co-location access to its Tier III data centre and even providing office space so employees, and data, avoid the 109 mile zone of roads connecting venues, accommodation and stations.

"Businesses relying on data centres located in or close to the Olympic and Paralympic contagion zone' will be crossing their fingers this Summer, as it simply will not be possible to repair any network outages in the area," said Aidan Paul, chief executive (CEO) of parent company Vtesse.

"Indeed, with vast crowds descending on the capital, it will be hard enough to even get to a data centre in the area."

Vtesse Cirrus claims that at only 21 miles from the City and 32 miles from Docklands, access to the sites is easy and prevents businesses being unable to carry out maintenance or fix any issues in their back-ends whilst London is taken over by sports personalities and tourists.

"We've already received considerable interest from London-based businesses which simply can't let the Olympics risk the continuity of their data centre operations," added Paul.

"Our new short term service contracts have been designed with these firms in mind, ensuring optimum operating levels throughout this critical period, all from a data centre which is within easy commute of the capital."

As well as being based in Hoddesdon, Hertfordshire, Vtesse offers mobile access to its data centres, enabling those who prefer to take the work from home route during the games to still function, but without worrying about the risk to central London hubs.

Vtesse is currently developing another data centre outside of the M25 but it is not yet clear if this will be ready in time for the Olympics.
