We’re all well aware of the importance of security when it comes to storing and protecting data. When choosing a colocation partner, knowing that your data will be in good hands is critical. That’s why we (Datum) chose to establish our data centre business at Cody Park in Farnborough – read on to find out why this is the perfect location for storing business-critical data

A brief history of Cody Park

When it comes to finding a resilient, high level security location for your data, businesses will be hard pressed to find anywhere more suitable. Cody Park is a former military base, which is now home to the likes of The UK Defence Solutions Centre, GE and QinetiQ. The park is highly controlled and regulated with advanced security-driven protocols in place, and a range of important clients who place their trust in the site’s accredited status.

Cody Park itself is steeped in a rich history when it comes to technology and aerospace engineering. A number of innovations that changed the world had their beginnings at Cody Park, including radar technology and night vision goggles. If you go back even further into history, you’ll learn that the first manned flight in the UK took place by the locations namesake, Samuel Cody.

Unparalleled security

Cody Technology Park is one of very few List X facilities in the UK. As a result of occupying this location, Datum’s data centre benefits from a multi-layered security structure that has attracted the likes of government, defence and engineering to make use of the site. Due to the nature of the current occupiers, Cody Park is afforded the luxury of 24/7 security and guarded entrances. To further prove the location’s security credentials, Cody Park benefits from 3-factor access control and intruder detection alarms across the entire site.

However, a complete security solution should take into consideration more than the physical aspects. What makes the Datum offering unique is the management and processes that support this physical security offering. Not only is Cody Park an extremely secure site, but it is managed to ensure a zero-tolerance approach to risk and breaches. As such, it’s the perfect location strategically chosen for businesses with sensitive data.

Impressive amenities

As well as being highly secure, Cody Park benefits from some impressive facilities. Across the 257-acre site, businesses have access to an incredible range of amenities including conference facilities, catering, hospitality, fitness facilities and even a 24hr gym.
