Datum develops and operates premium-build colocation data centres that are designed from the ground up to provide enterprise organisations and service provider clients with a reliable foundation for their business critical IT.
Datum FRN1, our flagship UK datacentre, has capacity for more than 1,000 colocation racks within the high security Cody Technology Park in Farnborough, which is fast developing as a strategic London-edge data centre hub. Close to the M3, with easy access to the M4 and M25, Farnborough has a fast frequent train service to London Waterloo, with a journey time of less than 40 minutes.
Built-in resilience, environmentally efficient cooling, stringent security and a broad choice of cloud and network connectivity options ensure that clients across the verticals and of all sizes can reap the benefits of a technologically advanced facility.
Designed for security, resilience and efficiency
Situated in the QinetiQ Cody Technology Park, FRN1 consists of three buildings — the main facility, a separate energy centre and an office building. The clean separation between the three allows us to focus the design and build of each component of the facility on its central purpose.
The data centre uses a pure free cooling based flooded airflow design, which works most efficiently in an optimised space free of other infrastructure, delivering enhanced environmental efficiencies and supporting high density computing to 30kW per rack as standard.
The energy centre houses all the back-up power generation including the UPS and generators in a secure purpose-designed facility, and our offices also include client usable space such as private offices and conference rooms for meetings.
Room to grow
The appeal of Datum's service-enhanced offering delivered from a highly secure facility has continuously attracted discerning clients determined to support their organisation's growth today and in the future.
