About Us

Partners & Alliances

Our partners

Every aspect of our data centre approach has been meticulously considered. Not only are our design and build teams carefully selected for every project, we have also established a number of key partnerships and alliances, with suppliers, providers and associations – all chosen because they actively contribute to a key aspect of our operations.

We also work extensively with a number of other service partners, including Bruce Shaw LLP, Frontline Security Solutions, Gratte Brothers, H Sweet and Sons, JCA, Vysiion and Waterman Building Services.

While we are vendor-agnostic, our data centres are already served by all the major fibre providers: 6 Degrees, BT, CenturyLink (inc. Level3), Colt, Exponential-E, GTT (inc. Interoute and Easynet), HSO, NextGenAccess, SSET, TalkTalk, Updata, Verizon, Virgin Media Business, Vodafone (inc. Cable & Wireless) and Zayo.
