About us

Crown Hosting Data Centres Limited is a joint venture between the Cabinet Office and Ark Data Centres that delivers increased efficiency, improved value, and transparency of data centre hosting utilisation across the entire UK Public Sector.

At the core of Crown Hosting is a desire to give Public Sector organisations a secure, efficient, and cost-effective route to the Cloud. We provide flexible data centre colocation contracts at a fraction of the cost of other hosting organisations, making your Cloud Appropriate digital transformation more cost effective and more efficient.

We can help transform the efficiency of your organisation through data centre colocation with best-in-class risk assurance, flexibility, security, environmental performance, and ability to enable Cloud services.

Designed to enhance the public experience of IT and accelerate new government services to market, our catalogue of simple-to-buy services substantially reduces the operational risk and overall cost of Public Sector departments and organisations.

As part of this Government’s long-term economic plan, we’re determined to utilise our unique buying power and become a more intelligent customer. It doesn’t make sense for departments to host their servers in different ways and at different costs, and we even got to a point where we weren’t sure how many of these centres there were. That’s why we’re saving millions for the taxpayer by aggregating this demand.

By partnering in a joint venture, we’re also able to access the necessary commercial and technical skills in the market to create a thriving new business that will deliver better services and allow government to share in its future success.
