Northern Ireland businesses large and small now have access to 5NINES NIDC, a highly secure and resilient data centre that allows them absolute peace of mind, knowing that our investment in back-up power, cooling and security systems ensure that their servers and IT infrastructure will always be available whatever external factors exist.

In the past, NI businesses have needed to invest in their own in-house back-up systems or locate their servers off-site in places like Dublin or mainland UK, and this is now unnecessary, says Paul Besley, general manager of 5NINES NI.

If you just have a few servers or if you have huge hosting requirements, you can now locate these in Northern Ireland with us and we can take the risk of an outage away.

Whether you take a quarter rack or even a whole data hall from us, the facility offers you the same: high security, high availability and a place to work from, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

Our facility is directly connected to a large and growing range of national and international telecom networks, offering more choice and resilience than ever available in NI before.

5NINES are delighted to be a sponsor of the first Belfast Telegraph IT Awards IT Team of the Year category. It seems that almost every day we hear of a new IT business setting up in Belfast; established NI businesses succeeding and expanding, and international companies locating here to take advantage of the great people and great place to extend their presence, so it is clear that NI is recognised as the perfect place for technology businesses to thrive.

The success of businesses is increasingly down to the capability of IT teams to design and implement best technology solutions to keep them ahead of the game, make them easy to do business with and protect the data from risk of outage or cyber-attack.

5NINES also recognised the opportunity here and have invested many millions of pounds to become a crucial part of Northern Ireland's critical infrastructure.

Having a purpose-built, large scale, highly secure and resilient facility here not only allows existing business working in the province to locate their vital IT infrastructure with us, it will also encourage international businesses to choose NI, safe in the knowledge that as they grow, there is a data centre here that can accommodate their needs into the future from within NI.

It's wonderful to see these new awards recognise the belief, hard work, achievement and success of the people and businesses in all categories, so we congratulate all those shortlisted and we look forward to meeting and working with many of you.
