Each of the datahalls is situated on the second floor of the datacentre while the machinery and equipment needed to run and maintain the servers is located on the floor below.
Virtus provides the floor space in the datacentre for clients to rent and operate from, and clients are asked to bring their own hardware that they can put into dedicated data halls, private suites, cages areas or cabinet deployments.
The eight self-contained data halls at the Enfield datacentre can accommodate a total of 1,070 racks when they're at full capacity.
The Virtus facility has a PUE of 1.48.
PUE expresses the proportion of power that must be expended to support the IT infrastructure, versus the power that actually runs the racks, servers, network equipment and other essential components of the datacentre. A PUE rating of 1.1 means that only 10 percent of the total facility's power goes on the support infrastructure, with the rest going on the equipment.
