Uncontended, secure and speedy

brightsolid powers organisations like Alliance Trust, the NHS and Aberdeen City Council. We ensure their data and systems are always available and protected.

Our diverse network provides industry leading latency and DDoS protection as standard while using the very latest in enterprise class equipment.

Growing business and operations can create increased strain on IT and bandwidth requirements.

Our data centre network provides you with a range of secure high capacity connections between our facilities, clouds and national network.


Virtual Network Operator
Get anywhere on our network in less than 15 milliseconds with confidence that your data will always arrive safely and on time.

Our average jitter, (latency variant) is just 1 millisecond, so our customers receive a consistently solid and strong service.

Robust and resilient, we have critical 10gb links between each of our data centre locations across Scotland with a substantial core network and team of in-house networking ninjas.

This enables us to guarantee rapid failover in the event of a line outage. Ensuring your systems are always operating at optimum speed and performance.

Vendor neutrality for the most diverse service choice

The brightsolid core network offers the following:

  • “Meet Me” connectivity between two or more customer racks to facilitate data sharing without leaving the security cordon of the data centre
  • Dedicated patching within customer racks through existing connectivity resources or directly rack to rack

Routed connectivity between brightsolid data centres and points of presence (POPs) can reduce the requirement for resilient links at both sites.

Resilience is provided through the core network, facilitating the connection between dedicated customer links.

Volumetric DDoS protection as standard

What’s the benefit?
We offer our cloud customers volumetric DDoS protection as standard. This ensures:

Early Identification
Our partners’ Security Operation Centre monitors any threat to our network 24/7, alerting us to anomalies which could disrupt customer services that allow us to quickly implement our mitigation service.

Speedy Mitigation
Once the mitigation service is activated, targeted traffic is re-directed via our partners scrubbing centres and then returned once safe to do so. In extreme cases we can black-hole targeted traffic, avoiding disruption to the rest of the customer base.

Our direct connections to our network partners scrubbing centres, coupled with operationally excellent procedures mean that we can mitigate service disruption and work to keep your services online and working throughout a DDoS attack.


Reduced Impact
Our ability to identify early and mitigate quickly reduces the disruption caused, reducing your overall business risk.

Advanced reporting for better planning
Additional monitoring and reporting tools enable us to provide a more detailed and comprehensive brief on the attack.

We happily work with customers who like a more in-depth analysis, providing granular details that enhance future security and business continuity planning.
