Data Centre Co-Location

Wanstor provides businesses with data centre co-location facilities and services that are safe and secure, offer a highly available service and enable organisations to scale their IT operations when required.

Wanstor understands that as data has grown and cloud computing has evolved, many businesses are looking at other ways to house their data, rather than constantly building new data centres. Data centre co-location is a solution which is growing fast, as customers seek a cost effective and secure solution to data management.

The data centre co-location services Wanstor provide include:

Space and Power

We house all equipment in secure Cabinets, Cages or Private Rooms. Additionally we are energy efficient and use cold-aisle containment configuration and airflow-management optimisation in all our data centre co-location solutions.

Power and Cooling

These elements are delivered by infrastructure designed for high availability and resilience. Our co-location data centres are equipped with a maintainable infrastructure that includes physically diverse distribution paths, conditioned power with battery backup, and fault tolerance against public utility outages with full-capacity generator backup systems. Additionally we use cold aisle containment as standard to optimise air flow management and allow our customers servers to operate at higher power densities.

Connectivity

Our co-location data centres give customers access to a high density of carriers across Europe including fixed and mobile network operators, Internet exchanges and content distribution networks. We can provide your business with the choice and flexibility you need to build secure, reliable networks with the right performance at the right price.

Cross Connects

We provide our customers with pre-installed patch panels to enable direct, low-latency connections to partners, suppliers and customers.

Cloud

Our data centre co-location service enables our customers to build and manage secure, high-performance cloud services. They can then access public cloud service providers such as Microsoft Azure or AWS, through a single physical connection, or choose to build their own hybrid cloud computing environment hosted from one location saving set up time, and maintenance costs.

Security and Reliability

Our co-location data centre is maintained 24/7 by our experienced and highly trained engineers. Our co-location data centre has been designed to deliver IT performance against industry standards. Additionally we have trained security staff deployed on site and all premises are monitored by video surveillance cameras. No one enters or leaves without proof of identity and all visitors are checked against defined access lists.

Environmental

Our co-location data centre design provides mitigation of risks from environmental events. The data centre co-location building is fitted with a water detection system so leaks can be spotted and stopped early, and of course fire alarms which are sensitive to smoke or any heat extremities.

Onsite Technical Support

We can provide qualified engineers to undertake routine or emergency support of your equipment in our data centres including: Installing or moving equipment, Power cycling routers, switches and servers, Interface card removal and installation, Testing of in-house carrier circuits, Soft-booting servers, Remote troubleshooting, Structure cabling installation, and Patching and asset management.

24x7x365 IT Service Desk Support

We can provide IT service desk agents who are available 24/7 to answer your datacentre questions and queries, co-ordinate programmes of work, and resolve specific events which may affect the service your business needs.

Wanstor Data Centre Colocation Benefits

Because of the capital costs, operational risks and challenge of building a competent data centre facility, businesses turn to co-location providers like Wanstor as an economical alternative to owning and operating their own data centre. By partnering with Wanstor for data centre co-location services, businesses can benefit from:

  • Reduced IT operational costs: Costs of security and technology are shared with other co-location partners, and are further reduced by energy-efficiency across the facility. Additionally you only pay only for the space you need and have the flexibility to scale as your business grows.
  • Reach and location: Locating closer to your business premises will give a better IT connectivity experience to staff and customers. It may also give you access to better connections as well e.g. Up to 10 Gbps in central London compared to much less outside of the M25.
  • The right connectivity: Connect to a choice of connectivity providers, internet exchanges and other network service providers. This will give your business choice so you can optimise costs and design a data centre service which truly enables your business and the customers it serves.
  • Scalable capacity: As your business grows so does the data management requirements. Instead of having to wait for a new data centre facility to be built, co-location facilities give your business access to extra data capacity on demand. Wanstor co-location data centre facilities help businesses to achieve the flexibility, scalability and cost-effectiveness they need to effectively support business plans.
  • Business focus: By outsourcing part of your data management needs to Wanstor’s facilities, your IT engineers will be free to undertake other strategically important IT tasks.
  • Skilled engineers: Our skilled engineers are proactive in their work and will help you spot any problems with servers, storage or racks before they become business critical. Additionally as resources are on demand you can choose when to use them and only pay for what you need and not a fixed cost of employment.
