Classic colocation with superior infrastructure

If you prefer to keep your data on your own physical servers, but need a speedier network and tighter security, iomart colocation might just be your answer. With this option, we house your servers in our secure data centres which offer the superfast network speed you’re after.

How does colocation work?

In a nutshell, you rent space for your servers in one of our data centres. We give you everything you need to run your server including: the physical environment, the power and cooling, the bandwidth and the IP address.

How much space? Well, that depends what you really need. It can be a rack or a cabinet, a private cage or more. It’s really pretty flexible.

And one more thing… Security and resilience are also included with 24/7 manned security, CCTV and biometric access. Plus, you’ll benefit from our backup batteries and generators to save you from any outages.

Why choose colocation with iomart?

Facilities and service

We own and operate 13 data centres across the UK. And they’re all connected with our own high speed dark fibre network.

With dual-powered equipment and multiple connections, equipped with full uninterruptable power, backup and cooling systems, our data centres are totally secure, highly resilient and designed to cope with all computing demands.

We also take service seriously and can support your rack space around the clock. We’ll give you one point of contact and make sure your servers have the power, security and network connectivity they need.

Expertise and reliability

Our technicians are really well trained and accredited by our vendors and partners. They’re also employed directly by iomart (we don’t outsource our service).

We’re financially stable and a publicly listed company on the Alternative Investment Market of the London Stock Exchange (IOM:AIM). So we’re not going anywhere.

Reduce costs

Colocation can help you make pretty big financial savings on infrastructure operating costs, including power, and help you budget with a predictable monthly price.

Our colocation is based on a monthly fee depending on how much rack space, power and bandwidth you need. Our prices are based on how much space (per ‘U’) you need and the level of service you want for managed colocation (for caged areas, custom racks and fit-outs).

Improve reliability

It’s super important your hardware can cope with changing demand. Our experts can keep an eye on your servers around the clock to make sure you’ve got a stable operating environment. Dual independent power feeds and on-site backup generators also make sure you’re protected from any outages.

Superior connectivity

Our data centres have connections into multiple Tier 1 network operators. They’re also inter-connected with our own high-speed 100 GB private fibre network, keeping waiting times (latency) to a minimum.

Data sovereignty

We own and operate a network of 13 data centres across the UK so, if you are worried about data sovereignty, we’ve got you covered.

Access and control

Your IT team can manage day-to-day maintenance of your servers remotely or we can give you support from our team in-house. Once security-cleared, your team will also have access to our data centres day and night, so your equipment will always be available to you.

Robust security

We take a multi-layered approach to security to keep your data safe. Our infrastructure is regularly tested against strict industry security policies and audit guidelines. Our data centres are also managed and monitored year-round by our engineers, including: 24/7 interior and perimeter video surveillance, alarm monitoring, biometric and ingress/egress key card access controls to name but a few…

Quality and compliance

Our quality management systems are independently verified to meet ISO 9001 Quality Management, ISO 20000 IT Service, ISO 27001 Information Security, ISO 22301 Business Continuity, as well as ISO 14001 Environmental Management and ISO 50001 Energy Management… So we’d like to think they’re pretty robust.

Our data centres also meet various industry assurance conditions to help reassure our customers who have specific regulatory obligations.

Sustainable approach

All the energy we use in our data centres comes from REGO (Renewable Energy Guarantees of Origin) certified sources. We’re also ISO 50001 and ISO 14001 accredited, which essentially means we have an ongoing commitment to improve our carbon impact.
