MIGSOLV provides world-class data centre services, helping businesses protect their data and increase their business resilience. Situated in low-risk area of Norwich, The Gatehouse is the East of England’s only purpose-built data centre.
The Gatehouse consists of two large and adjacent buildings, which house servers and IT equipment for local small businesses and multi-national companies alike.
Each of the two buildings that form The Gatehouse is 3,000m2 and has a data hall within it of 1,500m2. Each building also has a dedicated loading bay, a store room, a de-box room and a test/staging room that is adjacent to the data hall. For visiting engineers there is also a ‘client touch down area’ where there is a guest Wi-Fi network providing internet access in addition to TV and tea and coffee facilities to ensure that time spent waiting for parts or patches can be spent in more comfortable surroundings.

The entire site, both internally and externally, is covered by CCTV cameras with all recordings retained for a minimum of 93 days. Security features include:
