Prescient Data Centres is delighted to be involved with the Belfast Telegraph Business Awards again this year.
We were sponsors in the past when previously known as 5NINES.
We are sponsoring the Best Established Small/Medium Business category this year as this sector represents so many of Northern Ireland's companies and also reflects many of our customers.
This is an important point to note as although we are a large scale data centre, we are set up to service the needs of businesses of all sizes and are often asked to host just a few servers.
Our customers include those operating in financial services, manufacturing, IT services and new cloud service providers.
This last year has been difficult for so many people and initially it was quiet for us, as a pandemic is not viewed as an ideal time to relocate IT infrastructure; however as time passed, companies who had been using their offices and factories to host their computer servers and IT equipment in house realised that with many staff working from home, the risk to their business of keeping this critical infrastructure in an unattended building often with poor power backup and security was too great and we have been helping companies relocate to Prescient's high security data centre with the ultimate in power and cooling backup.
In many cases, with our flexible terms and competitive communications carrier options, we've been able to save money too.
For many businesses, the past year has forced changes to their IT infrastructure to allow staff to operate remotely, and being able to locate this infrastructure in a purpose-built data centre with a choice of connectivity options has been very beneficial in supporting these changes.
We wish all entrants the very best of luck and particularly those in the Best Established Small/Medium Business category. We hope to have the opportunity to meet you all in the very near future
