Our data centres have specialist government telecoms and carriers on site, with scalable and resilient connectivity to PSN, N3 and RLI/SLI services. Furthermore, our dual campuses not only offer high speed data centre interconnectivity at a low cost, but also offer assured redundancy and consolidation of your data.
Our Connected Campus allows you to connect to any Cloud platform or any other service from our facilities, as we have a rich fibre infrastructure and diverse routes and suppliers in place for all customers. You can access this fibre directly from our data centre, reducing the infrastructure set up needed and lowering your operations cost. With this fibre infrastructure, our campuses are carrier agnostic, meaning that you can change providers or vendors when required. You can also add or decrease space in our data halls as required, and we are also compatible with the latest High-Performance Computer equipment.
