What is colocation?

At Pure Telecom, we can help you move your equipment to state-of-the-art data centres.

Colocation involves us housing your privately-owned servers and networking equipment in a highly secure and robust data centre environment. We ensure your vital IT infrastructure is always online, safe and secure. You avoid the high costs of running and maintaining your own server environment whilst saving space in your office.

How it works

Our colocation services offer you a secure and resilient hosting environment for you to operate your existing IT investments. We use privately-owned data centres designed, built and managed to ensure that the required security, connectivity and environmental aspects are all in place to give you the peace of mind that your equipment is in the safest of hands.

Hosting your environment couldn’t be simpler. You can choose anything from ¼ rack through to bespoke private cages, and we can manage it on your behalf. The power, bandwidth, IP address and cooling systems are all sorted for you.

With data centres in Derby, Leeds and Northampton totalling 84,000 sq. ft. and housing over 1,500 racks. All sites offer high specification and resiliency in cooling, power and connectivity. Furthermore, sites are robustly connected and sited within an outstanding national MPLS network.

We can deliver much stringent levels of security, including security guards and even biometric access control. Resilience is a key feature, with data centres providing backups and UPS devices to protect against outages, including those caused by natural disaster, fire or flooding.
