The National Archives is a government department and an executive agency of the Ministry of Justice (MoJ). As the official archive of the UK government and England and Wales, The National Archives looks after and makes available to the public a collection of historical records dating back more than 1,000 years, including records as diverse as the Domesday Book and MI5 files.
Keysource delivered data centre professional services and consultancy for one of The National Archives’ sites in Kew, which houses most of the storage, network and server infrastructure used to deliver corporate and customer facing technology services.
The scope of the project focused developing a set of best practice principles and energy efficiency initiatives which can be implemented throughout the data centre. Completed in just 4 weeks, the project included creating tender specifications and documents to allow The National Archive to tender the required upgrade works.
