How Colocation will benefit your business

Complete security for your hosted servers

It is vital to keeping your confidential business data secure. Our dedicated Tier 3 data centre environments offer high levels of security 24/7, with continuous manned security, CCTV, intruder alarms and authorised access control - making sure your servers are well guarded.

Your data, always available

Even the shortest period of time without access to your systems or data can have huge operational and financial impacts on your business. We provide a fully redundant service as standard to keep you connected to your data, no matter what.

Reduce your infrastructure costs

Creating the right environment to house your server infrastructure can be costly. For a simple monthly, quarterly or annual fee, our service gives you sufficient space, power, cooling, connectivity, redundancy and security; no huge upfront costs and no ongoing utility and maintenance bills.

A service that grows with you

On-premise server environments can be very inflexible, restricted by space or the running costs of supporting extra hardware. With Colocation, you can add to your service, whether rack space or more power or connectivity, so your business can grow without your server infrastructure holding you back.

UK-based service and support

We offer a 24/7 remote hands service at each of our data centres of up to two hours a month, included as standard. Our unscripted customer and technical support teams are also on hand to help at any point throughout your service, to answer any questions you may have.

Our data centres: the secure choice

Our Colocation service uses some of Europe's largest purpose-built Tier 3 data centres, providing your business with the best environment to host your servers.

Both Global Switch - London Docklands and Chalfont Grove benefit from diverse feeds from the National Grid network, where the incoming electrical supplies are considered among the most resilient available to any infrastructure within the UK.

Located in and around London, multiple transport links are available to each to easily reach your servers when needed.

Security features include:

  • 24/7/365 manned security operations centre and guard patrols
  • Common interior and exterior CCTV surveillance
  • CCTV records kept for a minimum of 31 days
  • Perimeter Intrusion Detection System
  • Intruder alarms to all areas
  • Physical access controlled by mantrap
  • Access control via proximity card readers and biometric systems
