The hybrid solution: Combining colocation and the cloud means you can viably manage your workloads without the high costs of owning your own datacentre. Allowing the cost of basic infrastructure and operations to run free thanks to colocation in our datacentre means more time for business innovation and growth.

Maintaining compliance in the cloud is also difficult, whereas colocating necessary workloads into our compliant datacentre puts you on the right path to meeting security requirements on your way to the cloud.

What’s more, our fully managed and highly invested network means low-latent connectivity. This gives you speed and it gives you scale. The scale to deploy applications faster and meet your new business demands.

When is Hybrid Cloud Colocation chosen?

  • To meet stringent security and compliance needs
  • Transitioning, for those needing bespoke kit and cloud resources, combined
  • Scalability for businesses with variable workloads
