Datum Datacentres starts off 2017 on a high

Farnborough – 7 February 2017 – Datum Datacentres today announced that for the second year running, the company has exceeded its targets, with its ongoing expansion supported by two further appointments.

From its launch in 2012, Datum’s expanding business has proved the value of its co-location offering: a premium build data centre with a focused service wrapper delivering high levels of client satisfaction. As Dominic Phillips, Datum’s Managing Director explains:

We launched Datum in what was at the time a challenging environment for co-location but we were convinced that we could offer a differentiated service. We identified that the market was missing a high quality data centre that was competitively priced and able to deliver valuable levels of service to its clients.  We believed that this combination would most effectively support the challenges our clients’ faced when seeking the benefits that they could achieve from outsourcing their business critical IT.

What makes Datum different

Datum’s highly secure and resilient data centre houses clients that range from multi-million pound global corporations to small but ambitious IT start-ups. From public safety and security to international insurance, financial services, global cyber security, online payments, defence and engineering, each and every client benefits from a transparent partnership, responsive support and a client-first approach.

Datum’s Concierge service has proved its worth many times over in smoothing client transition into the data centre and working with them to ensure the co-location provision properly supports their business.

The client first approach extends to every member of the team, and Datum is delighted to welcome Lee Roberts to strengthen the Sales team and Joanna Terka as Datum’s new Finance Manager.

Lee brings a wealth of experience understanding client needs with a well-known technology business process management and consulting organisation where he spent most of his time project managing the move of co-location customers into data centres, and Joanna has already demonstrated a keen grasp of the business.
