Colocation Options

From single racks to dedicated suites and custom builds

Whatever you need, we offer flexible colocation options to our clients from a single rack to building out an entire customised IT suite, potentially within dedicated caged areas for additional levels of control. Our colocation UK solutions always maintain a focus on maximising the energy efficiency of our facilities to best serve every client.

Racks, cages and suites

We specify chimney racks in a hot and cold aisle containment layout, and whilst we have our preferred rack suppliers, our clients can specify their own, providing the racks are compatible with the Datum cooling solution. All of the expected security options are available, ranging from combination locks to active security including rack level, CCTV and multifactor authentication.

Clients with larger requirements are offered the option of a dedicated, caged environment. A tough metal shell incorporates a range of additional data centre security options from standard digital combination locks to full access control systems with multifactor authentication cages. Separate storage and build areas are provided to clients in order to keep these activities away from the data halls.

There is a logical step up from cages for large clients, where our suites can be custom designed from the ground up to accommodate specific requirements with customised power, cooling and security requirements.
