Seajacks Selects MIGSOLV’s Facility for IT and Data Storage

As part of a review of the business’s resilience, the company, based in Great Yarmouth, UK, looked to move data storage from its main site to a more secure environment. A number of considerations led the company to choose MIGSOLV’s facility in Norwich.

“Having a secure data center with excellent connectivity less than 20 miles away is fantastic.” said a spokesperson for Seajacks. “We were looking to store our data offsite as part of our disaster recovery plan. We decided against a cloud solution so we could remain in control and maintain physical access to our hardware. For us, MIGSOLV was an excellent choice.”

Established in 2006, Seajacks provide jack-up vessels which help install, maintain and decommission offshore wind turbines and oil and gas rigs. They’ve experienced strong growth and now operate five purpose-built vessels which have contributed to major North Sea projects including Walney, Greater Gabbard, Sheringham Shoal and East Anglia One wind farms.

Seajacks’ computer servers and other data storage hardware will now be housed in MIGSOLV’s facility. The equipment will be stored inside and physically protected from threats including theft, terrorism and extreme weather.

“We’re thrilled to welcome a leading company like Seajacks to the Gatehouse,” said David Manning, MIGSOLV’s Managing Director. “Data security is a critical consideration in the energy sector and we’re keen to help protect as many businesses as possible along the East’s Energy Coast. We’re delighted we could also help Seajacks access better connectivity.”

Originally planning to source its own carrier for connection to the internet and other networks, Seajacks has also opted for MIGSOLV to provide enhanced wide area network (WAN) connectivity.
