Benefits of Colocation

When you compare hosting your own IT infrastructure on-site to renting space within our carrier neutral data centres, the advantages of colocation are obvious. We've invested millions of pounds to create data centres that provide the ideal setting for your IT equipment, with a reputation unmatched by most in-house data centres.

Colocation offers a number of benefits:


We design our data centres with in-built redundancy, providing all the reliability you could possibly need. From backup power generators to our UPS systems complete with N+1 redundancies, our data centres are fully-owned and operated by UKFast, allowing us to manage all aspects of the data centre-leaving nothing to chance.

Maximised Uptime

Any amount of downtime - even minutes - can be a disaster for any business. By leveraging colocation services, your IT framework is securely housed in our redundant high-speed internet-connected facility; with continuous power provided by UPS battery systems and on-site diesel generators for emergency backups.


Achieving quality standards of service and uptime capabilities could cost your business hundreds of thousands of pounds, even millions - and this doesn't even take into account the sheer maintenance and monitoring required for your data centre. With colocation proving increasingly popular with numerous businesses, we're proud to be one of the leading data centre facilities to offer such an unrivalled and cost-effective service.


We offer quarter, half, full racks and cages to all our clients, allowing you to grow as you require. We offer private data centre suites for companies looking to white label our services to their customers.

Increased Network performance

As a carrier neutral data centre operator, we facilitate a wide range of connectivity and communications options. On-site networking is also available within our facilities, which is managed via diverse and resilient class Cisco 6500 series routers and switches on independent entry points using a diverse cabling system.

Data Protection

Our facilities are certified to protect in-house data courtesy of the following accreditations:

  • ISO 27001:2005 Info Security Management
  • ISO 9001:2008 Quality
  • PCI DSS compliant


We have Microsoft, Windows, Dell, HP, NetApp, Cisco and Red Hat technical engineers on-site at our data centres 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. Additionally, we provide 15 minutes remote hand per rack per month included as standard = with bespoke support available depending on your needs.
