Produced in partnership with Housing Technology, Next Level and Gemini Fire Management Systems, Sovereign’s new 360∘ virtual reality tour allows viewers to experience the data centre without having to leave their own office desk.
Jo Sedley-Burke, Sovereign’s Managing Director, explains, “The possibilities with VR technology are endless and we thought a perfect start to our video productions would be to take people on a tour of our data centre. We wanted to make it as easy as possible for people to ‘visit’ our data centre and see the fantastic facility we have here. Now, anyone who would like to see our data centre can do so, without leaving their office.”
Sovereign’s data centre is Tier III designed and holds the ISO 27001 standard for security. The Cockfosters site was carefully selected for its high position above sea level, great overland and underground rail access and major road links to the South East and the rest of the UK. The 360∘ tour has been filmed to demonstrate both the impressive quality of the facility and the expertise with which it’s managed.
Jo Sedley-Burke says, “We are working with a lot of clients at the moment on disaster recovery and business continuity. We’re proud of our fantastic safety record at Sovereign and go to extra lengths to make sure we maintain it. This virtual reality tour allows us to show people, in detail, the elements of our data centre that will make their data and critical systems more secure.”
Viewing the 360∘ virtual reality tour is easy. Sovereign has created a You Tube channel https://youtu.be/ttnxe1r4g0I which showcases the video. View through Google cardboard for the full 3D experience or alternatively, you can watch it in normal video format.
