How Datum ensured business as usual during Covid

Security and continuity for business-critical IT throughout the coronavirus pandemic

The Covid-19 pandemic threatened business continuity for many businesses, particularly those with on-premise IT facilities that could not be accessed by IT staff or third-party engineers during lockdown. Thankfully, our datacentre clients remained unaffected

Our resilient, always-on, managed facility continued uninterrupted, providing essential site access, free remote hands engineering, flexible contracts, regular communication and status updates, and commercial assistance options to ensure business continuity for all our clients, throughout and beyond the pandemic.
