Datum Expands Operations

M247-Datacentre

Datum Datacentres is delighted to announce that they have commenced the build-out of an additional 250 rack hall after a successful 2014.

Datum’s MD, Dominic Phillips, notes: “We are delighted that so many prestigious organisations have validated our offering by selecting us as their co-location provider. When we launched Datum, we were determined to provide a stand-out service that would truly support our clients’ business. Whilst to some, co-location may be viewed as a commodity, our clients understand the fundamental value that a properly managed, premium build, client-focused operation can bring to their organisation. The full package of enhanced security, resilience to 2N backed by 100% uptime SLA, carrier- and cloud- neutral connectivity, and environmental efficiency – all delivered with enterprise-class service management – is hard to equal in the co-location market. Launching any business from a standing start can be a huge challenge and it is thanks to the team that we have secured Datum’s position as a premium provider in the UK co-location market.”

Datum’s client set includes businesses who are long-term users of co-location, some looking on behalf of clients and some seeking to place their own infrastructure in a reliable third-party data centre, as well as organisations seeking additional disaster recovery solutions and companies who have never before outsourced their data centre. Each company approaches the selection process in a different way and each one places different weightings on the various elements that make up the offering. Datum’s flexible approach and business outcome focus has helped every client to have access to the co-location service that they need, with pricing and contracts that deliver a package that makes more commercial sense than doing it themselves.

Dominic continues: “Datum specialises in doing one thing and doing it well. We do not compete with our clients but provide a specialist, professional service that delivers a secure cloud-connected foundation for their business. For organisations looking for additional support and services to achieve their objectives we offer the Datum Cloud Hub as a practical and proven way for them to directly access expertise through a network of market leading providers of IT services and cloud providers.”
