Outsourcing doesn’t have to be a leap of faith.

Our data centre in Derby has 330 racks in 4 halls and is connected to our other data centres through our MPLS network providing resiliency and easy backup options.

All our data centres have state-of-the-art Network Operations Centres (NOC) where data centre environments and your own systems are monitored and can be accessed 24/7.

Being located in the Midlands gives us the ability to offer our customers hosting solutions that are local to you – typically customers like to be within an hour of their data centre.

The Derby DC also benefits from being part of our core MPLS network meaning you have dedicated business internet connections as well as site-to-site connectivity to link up multiple offices, and hosted telephony services are provided through SIP.
