Datum for Service Providers

Datum was created out of a need for a new breed of secure data centre that would provide superior levels of service and performance at a fair price to service providers and their clients. Datum is the perfect colocation partner for IT Service Providers of all specialities, including Managed Service Providers, Systems Integrators, Connectivity, Cloud, ISVs and SaaS businesses.

The Datum model was based on experience gained from both sides of the data centre wall, as both provider and user, experience which showed the importance of supporting a robust facility with responsive service and operational transparency.

Our business is all about trust, confidence and peace of mind. Service Providers need a data centre on which they can rely in order to effectively deliver their solution, support their clients and grow their business. Datum understands the importance of transparency and reliability so that Service Providers can trust at all times that their clients’ data is in safe hands.

Datum's data centre colocation service was built to meet the exacting standards and requirements of IT service providers whose business relies on effectively supporting and securing their clients' IT. In addition to offering the security, power, cooling, fire protection and carrier neutral connectivity service providers demand, Datum offers a range of services to support transition into the data centre and complement the solutions you may provide to your clients.

Why colocate?

Datum Datacentres is ideally located outside the M25 for clients seeking confidential colocation within a secure data centre and accessible facilities away from central London.

Datum launched in 2012 with the vision of creating a colocation data centre that would support the needs of Service Providers as well as Enterprise organisations. Having experienced life on the Service Provider side of a colocation relationship, the management team identified the need for a new breed of secure data centre that would provide superior levels of service and performance at a fair price to service providers and their clients.

The high quality London-edge data centre with its enhanced service wrapper makes Datum the perfect colocation partner for Service Providers of all specialities, including Managed Service Providers, Systems Integrators, Connectivity, Cloud, ISVs and SaaS businesses.
