Server Co-Location

Get ultimate performance and flexibility by co-locating your server into one of our fully secure data centers in the UK. We can house your server in a state-of-the-art environment with 24/7 security, so all you have to do is maintain your server.

Ultimate performance
Companies wishing to fully exploit the advantages of the internet must ensure that their servers, especially web servers are located where customers are guaranteed to receive top speed access to their server content.

By locating your servers in our co-location center we can provide you with various levels of co-location environment and managed services to suit your budget. We can provide high speed connections to the internet via our national IP network or a direct connection to your premises.

You will also benefit from our IT investment into the co-location environment without the costs of investing in your own server rooms. We provide full cabinets of space, power to the cabinet, generator backup to ensure your servers remain highly available, air conditioning and fire suppression systems to ensure the server environment is totally resilient.

Key Features of Server Co-location

Direct connection to your network - Your server is located on a dedicated high performance switched 10 or 100Mb Ethernet port, ensuring your customers or employees have high speed access to your server.

Access to Information - You are able to edit and update the information held on your server from your desktop via any internet connection - you have full root access to your servers.

Bandwidth - Your server can have full access to the amount of bandwidth you require. This prevents bottlenecks accumulating when your site is being access by a large number of people at peak times, which can in turn affect the speed at which information is received.

24/7 Support - Our major co-location centers are manned 24x7x365 offering additional services such as remote hands, monitoring, backup and partial cabinet co-location.
