Dedicated Servers vs. Colocation

All your needs covered - Assurance with whatever solution chosen

Different needs, different challenges

Because we know every business has different needs and challenges, we offer both dedicated server or cloud hosting and colocation services from our data centres. Despite both being viable hosting options, each addresses different business challenges. Whichever option you choose, rest assured your solution is only housed in our ISO-certified, wholly-owned UK data centres.

Dedicated Servers

What is it?

As a dedicated server client you rent an entire dedicated server from us. We remain the owner of the physical server, but you get complete control over the content and build. Our managed dedicated server solutions are built with the latest industry-leading technology and supported by UK-based managed dedicated server experts 24/7/365

Why choose dedicated?

Dedicated server hosting is ideal for performing mission critical operations or for for dealing with high volumes of traffic. Engineers manage your server maintenance ensuring that the latest patches are installed as they are released, maximising the security framework that surrounds your network and giving you total peace of mind about your managed dedicated server.

What is it?

With colocation you rent space in our ISO-certified UK-based data centres to securely house your IT hardware, whilst retaining full ownership and complete control. You can rent anything from a single U to secured dedicated suites. You have access to the data centres 24/7/365 and we have hotel rooms on site for those times when your engineers need to do a long shift and need a bit of rest.

Why choose colocation?

Colocation enables you to take advantage of high availability, greater connectivity, increased scalability and heightened security that is beyond the means of most companies to create in-house. You have the added knowledge that our own engineers are on hand and are always happy to help should you need a hand moving boxes, or pulling cables.
