Build it

Build it

Purpose built, with one mission – to give the North East something they’d never had before – an Uptime Accredited data and cloud facility that even NASA would be proud of. Designed and built with security, connectivity and reliability at the core, Aberdeen has been accredited with a gold standard Tier III.

Embracing innovation and breakthroughs in energy and cost savings, our data centres are cooled by ecofris, a chilled water cooling system that isn’t only kind to the planet, but saves us and our customers money by reducing power usage.

Connect it

Connect it

We are carrier neutral. That means any internet service provider can connect into our data centres and our customers get more choice and market disruptive prices.

Our partner eco-system allows us to offer regional, national and international connectivity at super-fast speed. We also operate our own uncontended network and are proud of our ability to transport you anywhere in the UK in 13 milliseconds.

Fill it

Fill it

Not all clouds are equal and we have filled our facilities with different cloud capabilities for customers to choose from. Private, multi-tenanted and public. The first data centre provider in Scotland to be certified for Azure hybrid clouds, our customers can pick and mix between our clouds and access public Azure without ever leaving our data centres.

When helping potential customers design their strategic path to cloud, we recognise that one size does not fit all and encourage people to take a hybrid approach to their IT. This means that they can put production and development in different environments to suit budget and performance requirements.

The storage platforms that boost our clouds come from DELL and Infinidat. Infinidat storage has revolutionised the way we look at storage and blasts other providers out the sky when it comes to cost and availability, operating to seven 9’s as standard.

Our Aberdeen data centre has been welcomed into the IT community, reaching 80% capacity in just 18 months. We are about to begin phase two of our build which will provide an additional capacity of 200 racks.
