The Datum Difference

When choosing a colocation partner, there are a number of variables you need to consider. Because your choice of data centre is often part of a larger digital transformation strategy, finding a provider who offers more than just rack space is challenging. It’s safe to say that the days of simply finding the cheapest data centre operation is not enough. With data security in the headlines more than ever before, IT managers need a reliable, secure and service-focused colocation solution – but not all data centres are created equal.

For those who are interested in the colocation offering, we strongly encourage a visit to see Datum’s data centre close up. It’s easy to talk about the benefits, but to fully appreciate the added value and experience, it’s best to see for yourself.

I really did not want to visit but I am so glad I did. What I have seen is simply incredible and frightens me given my own facilities! An outstanding facility and having seen it first hand, this will make the decision process much easier - it’s a no-brainer!” (IT Director – Financial Management)

Migrating your IT infrastructure can be a stressful process. To mitigate this, and to help you to operate a smooth transition phase, Datum opt for a service-focused concierge approach to moving your IT. Unlike many other data centre offerings, this added level of service comes as standard, supporting clients through the early planning phases, all the way through to post-deployment support.

The Datum concierge team host the data centre tours too. It’s difficult to appreciate what’s offered without seeing it for yourself, so the concierge team are there to give insight into what makes the data centre unique, and provide a tailored experience based on the service required.

The whole proposition resonates totally – it is refreshing to talk to a colocation company who knows what we need to support a strong service to our clients.” (Digital solutions provider)

Data centre credentials

Not all colocation offerings are the same. Datum’s service levels differentiate the overall offering with added intangible benefits, but all prospective buyers should do it to satsify themselves that the credentials of the data centre are valid and relevant. The Datum data centre, situated in the Cody Technology Park, can offer unparalleled levels of security.  A full range of accreditations validate the service we offer and, further proves the Datum difference.

What a superb facility and business you have. I’m really encouraged by the passion and enthusiasm of all the Datum team and that most have been with you since the outset. You clearly place huge value in your clients and the services you provide. I look forward to working with you for many years to come.” (Managing Director and Owner – Logistics)

Why book a tour?

When it comes to fully appreciating the value of Datum services, seeing is believing. It’s extremely difficult to know if a data centre can live up to the promises made without seeing it for yourself.

The site has a ‘WOW factor' which will help us attract more customers for our services.” (ISV for banking and financial services)
