How it works
We maintain stringent levels of security over your racks and cabinets. They are secured with access controls and looked after (24/7) by our security guards.
We are efficient in our data centres at providing backups and UPS devices to protect against outages, including those caused by natural disaster, fire or flooding.
Economies of Scale
Higher levels of bandwidth at competitive cost.
Data Centre Infrastructure
Take advantage of our data centre infrastructure while maintaining control over upkeep, maintenance and configuration of your servers. You’ll also free up office space and improve your infrastructure cost-effectiveness.
Disaster Recovery & Business Continuity
By placing servers in our data centre rather than in an on-premises communications room, our clients build in an extra layer of disaster recovery in the event of power loss, enabling them to easily recover business critical data.
Low Network Latency
Reliability is significantly higher. Greater protection from power outages and 24/7 staff on site/ on hand should problems arise.
Choosing a bespoke build allows clients to personalise their colocation plan and decide which aspects of their system they want to focus on. You can choose from a range of facilities for individual infrastructures and budgets.
BOM Head Office Infrastructure
BOM’s privately owned and run Cumulus Axis Client Hosting facility
High availability infrastructure located at BOM’s HQ in Hengrove, Bristol. The physical infrastructure of the hosting facility is very powerful and highly redundant.
There is no danger of flooding ta BOM’s Head Office. In addition to the facility’s physical security, the whole of BOM’s ground floor has steel shutters for night-time security.
As BOM’s Cumulus Axis is an independent and privately-owned private cloud host, it allows the tailoring of specific solutions dependent on client requirement.
Full power backup via a 48-hour run-time generator
Dual 8GB / secure Fibre fabric switches configured in high-availability mode for failover
The facility is in a windowless secure block and has a brick construction room
Inergen Fire Suppression system
Extinguishes fire by suppressing oxygen levels to a point where fire cannot combust – resulting in there being no damage to any electronic equipment in the facility.
Keypad entry system
A keypad entry system with a steel constructed secure door is the only entrance to the facility. Authorised personnel only are given the code, currently this is limited to 6 staff, 5 of whom are SC cleared by a police force.
Service Provider License Agreement
Various software vendors have a model known as an SPLA (Service Provider License Agreement). This SPLA allows BOM to lease clients Windows Server and other operating systems, so that clients can run virtual servers on BOM’s high-availability hosted virtualised infrastructure.
UPS power protection in the hosting facility for servers and other devices
Clustered NetScreen firewalls configured in high-availability mode for failover
65TB of Backup Server capacity, scalable up to 180TB
What our clients say
Throughout our 60 years we have helped our clients succeed through IT and Technology, covering a variety of traditional and modern business models across such industries as global catering, protection insurance and SAAS companies.
Williams Autos have been using BOM for over 20 years, we wouldn't look any further for the future.
As a family run business we pride ourselves on family values and support from third party companies we are involved with, similar to BOM.
Very Happy with the BOM partnership.
BOM know our systems and business inside out, for us it's all about peace of mind.
Because of BOM we don't need to worry about IT, we are looked after and supported. The technology and IT support just works!
We've been with BOM for 10 years and I still know the same people on support which has been great for continuity and a testament since we partnered and linked up our companies.
Minimal explanation is needed when issues come up with the associated software, BOM speak and work with 3rd party vendors on our behalf.
Confidence and reliability are the two key things BOM deliver for Soilfix.
Confidence is delivered with the technology systems they provide and 18 months into the relationship the service has been reliable. We find the team easy to work with, which is a great bonus.
BOM is an extension of the One Post department giving us the highest level of technical support.
If we can't resolve it internally then BOM are the first port of call. We think of BOM as an extension of the IT services department, very bright people who've dealt with our IT challenges a number of times.
The service relationship has worked extremely well for us. It's an extra insurance when we need to act quickly. They get problems resolved and have a good track record with us over the years. We value the extra insurance and out of hours cover.
We would be happy to recommend BOM IT Solutions. One Post have a lot of IT expertise in house, however it's still valuable to have a strong 3rd party team available in BOM, sense checking and a sound board for our technological future.
