Datacentre Colocation


Colocation should be considered if your business wants to own and control all of its hardware but you don’t want to establish your own data centre. You can simply move your systems into our state-of-the-art data centre, leaving all of your security and availability concerns with us.

A variety of colocation configurations are available to suit your business needs, including full, half and quarter racks, private suites and multiple ‘U’ of rack space.

If your operation has a requirement for high density hosting, the increased demands for power and cooling can also be accommodated within one of our HD rooms. HD hosting provision with Wi-Manx is ideal for high density blade deployments or large-scale cloud provision.

Colocation customers can also leverage the multitude of ancillary services on offer in our data centre such as high speed network connectivity, private circuits, load balancing, managed security, backups and fully outsourced management.

Single Server: 1U to 4U

Single server colocation is the ideal solution for when you need to locate a server, NAS or similar device in our data centre. For projects requiring >5U of colocation, our quarter-rack is the most cost-effective option.

Quarter, half and full rack colocation

For solutions requiring a greater amount of rack space our quarter, half and full rack configurations offer more rack space for your equipment, enabling your solution to scale with ease. If you have a specific configuration you require, whether it is in relation to the network or power specification, please get in touch.

Heywood House can also accommodate multiple rack configurations, secure “Pods” of racks, private suites and high density deployments.
