Colocation

We offer colocation services in Manchester, Leeds, London, and Geneva data-centres — contact us to discuss your specific requirements.

Need to host your own equipment somewhere? We have UK colocation in Manchester, Leeds and London; and offshore colocation in Geneva, Switzerland.

We provide the rackspace and the power, cooling, and access control for your server colocation — you provide the servers or routers. We can also take care of connectivity and network services such as IP addresses, private VLANs, inter-site connectivity, and other bespoke requirements.

Our infrastructure has diverse power feeds and carrier neutral multiple network interconnections and we’re accommodating enough to colocate anything from a Raspberry Pi right up to however many “U” of servers you need. All our colocation facilities are powered by renewable energy, and will tick your auditor’s boxes: ISO27001, ISO14001, ISO9001, PCI-DSS, fire suppression, UPS power with back-up generators.

Want something offshore? We are able to offer limited amounts of Geneva colocation, with industry-leading energy efficiency.

We have more hosting options via dedicated and VPS servers, with a range of management possibilities. We are able to offer a blend of dedicated, colocated, and cloud hosting with private interconnectivity across all platforms and in multiple sites.
