Independence of resources
The infrastructure within AWS supports customers of all sizes. 
Data centres are built in clusters in various global regions. All data centres are online; no data centre is “cold.” In case of failure, automated processes move customer data traffic away from the affected area. 

Core applications are deployed in an N+1 configuration. In the event of a data centre failure, there is sufficient capacity to enable traffic load balanced to the remaining sites, maintaining system uptime during updates. 

AWS provides the flexibility to place instances and store data within multiple geographic regions and across multiple availability zones within each region.

With Amazon Web Services (AWS) at the core of the platform, you’re assured access to your systems, data remains secure and available, and you have access to the resources you need to serve your customers. AWS offers server redundancies, ensuring that if one server goes down, a system is up and running on another server within four seconds.

Fighting climate change

BSL Group are acutely aware of the increasing urgency of the climate emergency. We encourage staff to work from home where possible to reduce the carbon generated through commuting, and we ask staff to take the most eco-friendly travel option when they must travel. We offer a Cycle to Work scheme and encourage all staff to share even the most seemingly incidental ideas for how we can improve our carbon footprint.

We are committed to investing in modern tools and workspaces to ensure our staff are able to work effectively wherever they are. Our deeply embedded remote working capability (that predates COVID) means that we are able to recruit staff from around the UK, including in deprived areas.

To demonstrate how we support the health and wellbeing, including physical and mental health to our employees we have implemented an EAP for all employees which also allows them to invite up to 5 family members to access wellbeing content and our EAP. It provides 24/7, 365 days a year support with a confidential employee assistance programme (EAP).
