Case Studies

    Historic Environment Scotland

    Historic Environment Scotland (HES) has moved significant volumes of invaluable information about Scotland’s past to DataVita’s environmentally friendly datacentre, helping to reduce the carbon footprint of its IT.

    The public body for heritage protection and management is responsible for more than 300 designated ‘Properties in Care’ deemed to be of national importance to Scotland and is the guardian of growing volumes of significant historical data.

    DataVita now provides HES with a hybrid cloud service for compute, storage, back-up and disaster recovery – operated 24 hours a day, seven days per week – from Scotland’s only purpose-built, Uptime Institute tier III certified facility in North Lanarkshire.

    The move will enable HES to reduce the carbon footprint associated with its IT services. Earlier this year, DataVita was the first Scottish IT company to sign the Climate Neutral Data Centre Pact making a formal commitment to a carbon-neutral future as well as announcing plans to take the facility off-grid, generating its own electricity from wind and battery-powered back-up systems.

    Edgar Dodds, Head of IT at HES, said: “What set DataVita apart was its willingness to share risk without compromising availability. DataVita offered us a contract with no minimum spend – where we could walk away at any point if we were unhappy – and a true public cloud-like experience, but operated from within Scottish borders in a highly sustainable data centre. No-one else gave us the same level of flexibility, which positioned DataVita as a real partner, immediately building confidence and trust.”

    Danny Quinn, managing director of DataVita, added: “The data stored by HES forms an invaluable part of Scotland’s history and it is crucial that we protect it against any risk of corruption or loss. As a result of our ongoing focus on the environmental impact of the datacentre and IT services, we have also been able to help HES significantly reduce its carbon footprint. Organisations of all shapes and sizes are becoming more aware of their and their supply chain’s environmental impact, but small changes in areas such as IT can have a long-term impact on sustainability.”
