Yorkshire public transport firm Metro seeking a data centre partner

Data centre solutions companies across the UK should take note: Metro, a company which co-ordinates public transport services in Yorkshire, is currently searching for a partner to provide it with a high quality data centre solution. The company has left a notice about this search in the Official Journal of the European Union and, though it has used the notice to cite a lengthy list of requirements in a data centre partner,… we consider it a great opportunity for a UK data centre solutions company that is willing to rise to the challenge.

A long list of requirements

Metro has stated that it seeks a partner that can offer fully redundant environments, a lot of physical security, ISO27001 accreditation, Virgin Media Business POP and data centre staff who are on site 24 hours a day, seven days a week throughout the year. Metro also wants the partner to help it to create a data centre that can be accessed by Metro staff at any time on any day of the year. This is a long list and does not mention every single requirement that Metro has for a data centre partner, but we still reckon that the opportunity sounds promising for the right data centre solutions provider.

How products from Data Centre Shop could help

Such a provider could meet Metro’s expectations – and so fill the vacancy – with help from data centre products from Data Centre Shop. We stock a broad range of high quality data centre products, including switches, routers and servers, from a broad range of renowned makers of such products, including HP, Cisco and Juniper. Indeed, Metro have even stated that their sought-after data centre solutions provider should offer a service of a managed firewall – and we at Data Centre Shop certainly stock a wide range of firewall products that such a provider could choose from.
