Colocation

Advanced support for your infrastructure

Colt Colocation provides a secure, cost-effective way of housing, protecting, and accessing your data and equipment. Colt customers use this service because it is highly secure and they save space. They are also largely shielded from niggling problems which most commonly cause downtime and data loss on a day to day basis.

Our colocation service is for those who want to raise the bar further. We not only house your infrastructure, but manage it under stringent service level agreements. Dedicated data centre specialists perform important tasks which maintain it and enable your applications to run more smoothly.

You’ll benefit by being able to deploy your IT resources more effectively elsewhere, and you will solve the problem of trying to find your own floor space for your data and equipment - then keeping it physically secure.

You have access to our technology experts and will benefit from our preferred partner status with industry leaders such as Cisco, Microsoft, HP, Sun and Oracle when selecting hosted and managed components.

All this is made possible because we can rely on our industry leading data centre infrastructure. It is an operational network managed end to end. Our flexibility and agility is possible because we control and manage the assets that underpin our services – including 20 data centre facilities and 37,500km of fibre across Europe.

 

Flexible, reliable and safe services

Colt’s colocation services perform many of the repetitive tasks associated with running IT infrastructures. At the heart of those services are our purpose built, fault-tolerant data centres with round the clock electronic access and the security and high-level personnel to protect your key assets.

Our data centres, network management centres and processes are certified to ISO 27001, the highest standard in information security. Each centre provides a highly available and secure environment for your data, and managed facilities connected by dual diversely-routed high-bandwidth connections to our European network. The data centres are built to n+1 specifications for power and connectivity resilience and are monitored 24/7. They also feature sophisticated detection systems.

The network itself provides reach across 23 countries with last-mile fibre to more than 20,065 buildings in Europe. The network connects to 20 data centre facilities, purpose built to provide optimal environmental and security controls.

With this service you can integrate selected components from our range of certified managed services. Some of these include management of Microsoft, Linux and UNIX servers, firewalls and intrusion detection, so you are not limited to one provider.

You can scale your infrastructure by integrating our managed services but you can also retain control of key services elements as required. Your authorised personnel have constant access to your colocated equipment and can work from a dedicated customer facility.
