Keysource, the global datacentre and critical environment specialist, has undertaken a consultancy and professional services project for a communications room for Two Point Studios, newly acquired by Sega Europe, the producer of multi-million-selling game franchises including Sonic the Hedgehog, Total War, and Yakuza. This latest project builds on a 10-year relationship between Sega and Keysource.
The communications room is to support the general compute for the office of around 50 people. Keysource did an initial assessment which reviewed the current specification provided by the main building contractor. This then enabled a gap analysis to be undertaken against Best Practice guidelines and Sega’s requirements. This focused on the provisions that needed to be taken to deploy a suitable solution in line with the IT requirements and included exercises to establish a clear client brief.
The finalised report provided Sega Europe with a detailed summary of suggested alterations to the current scheme, additional considerations and next steps. In addition, there was a detailed analysis of the required current and future IT capacity, cooling and power resilience, maintainability and security, fire and environmental protection requirements.
Luke Brimelow, Keysource Key Account Manager, said: “As Sega Europe continues to grow and add amazingly talented studios like Two Point to its family, it important that the correct IT infrastructure is in place. We were able to respond quickly and provide independent consultancy to support this within a tight timeframe, demonstrating our understanding and expertise.”
Jide Agbalaya , Sega Systems Infrastructure Manager, said: “For over 10 Years Keysource has been our trusted advisor and so when changes to our IT estate are required, they are our partner of choice. This particular piece of consultancy provided us with the means to make informed decisions and deploy a suitably resilient IT solution specific to our needs as a business.”
