MBA has a purpose-built, secure data centre, based in Winchester. It delivers “tier 1” to “tier 4” levels of security, as required by the financial securities industry. As a Managed Service Provider, MBA can host, manage and operate applications on behalf of clients at this secure facility. An additional disaster recovery location ensures business continuity.
Secure Data Centre
MBA’s first class Secure Data Centre and its award-winning Service Levels represent a blue chip asset to its customers.
MBA provides a range of services within its Secure Data Centre:
- Hosting of financial web sites whether for trading, and/or providing clients with online access to specialised personal information such as portfolio and valuation data, or as online electronic marketing tools.
- Operational Management of systems on behalf of a bank or stockbroking firm wherein MBA hosts and manages the customer’s computer systems and networks.
- Disaster Recovery Services whereby MBA provides the backup procedural, information, trading, and communications facilities required by a financial services company in the event of the non-availability of its primary centre of operations.
MBA Disaster Recovery
MBA’s hosting operation at Winchester is based on MoD best practice and uses multiply redundant communications and processing hardware.
As a consequence there is a very low probability of hosting failure of the type which would require invocation of a DR site. However, the company maintains a Disaster Recovery facility in Fareham Hampshire where its key services and facilities are duplicated for invocation in the event of total system loss.
MBA’s experience, expertise, and professionalism ensure that its customers can go about their core business confident that the I.T. systems underpinning those business processes are in the best possible hands.
