Glasgow Data Centre and Colocation Services
Our Scottish data centre is located approximately 5km from the heart of Glasgow city centre. It is built on a 0.7 acre site and was constructed especially for large scale server hosting and colocation for our Scotland based customers. As a Tier 2 facility, it offers 768m² (8,266 ft²) of high quality, resilient and secure space across two separate data halls.
As a Tier 2 data centre, our Glasgow facility has multiple server sources to offer fluid interconnection between multiple carriers, across the country and other global points of presence. Data integrity is paramount so the Scottish site benefits from 24-hour security, alarms and CCTV.
Interconnectivity is assured at the colocation facility via our high-speed optimal network, which is covered by our guaranteed service levels. Unlike other providers, we wholly manage and maintain our Glasgow data centre, meaning we can make crucial updates without needing to go through a third party.
