Colocation Services

Secure, resilient and cost-effective datacentres when and where you need them

Colocation Services gives you all the benefits of an off-site datacentre, while keeping you in the driving seat. Your IT and communications equipment are located in one of our secure exchange buildings, but you retain full control and access. 


It’s convenient, secure and you won’t have to worry about running out of space as your business grows. Plus Colocation Services is aligned with our core network. It gives you access to local fibre WAN connectivity and reduces overall service latency, by colocating within the same buildings hosting the telecoms transmission networks. 

Stay local

With more than 5,000 locations across the UK, your facility can be located within easy reach. So there’s no need to drive long distances to access your hardware. 

Ultimate control

Taking your datacentre off-site doesn’t mean you have to give up control. As well as being able to design your own build, you get full access to your datacentre, 24/7, 365 days a year.

There’s room to grow

Whether you need two racks or 200, we can help. And if you need to scale up, you can, without having to worry about where your new servers will go.

Round-the-clock protection

As well as 24/7 physical security and fire protection, we offer network security to keep your business-critical data safe from cyber-attacks. 

Peace of mind

Your servers are protected by uninterruptible power supplies and on-site generators, offering you exceptional resilience at all times.

Environmentally friendly

As well as running on 100% renewable energy, we provide managed decommissioning services. We dispose of old, unwanted hardware safely and securely.
