Heywood House Datacentre

Isle of Man

Heywood House is our premier, offshore Isle of Man datacentre. The most modern facility of its type on the Isle of Man, Heywood House has a wealth of redundant power, cooling and network connectivity and is ideally positioned to serve the most demanding hosting environments.

With N+1 Generator systems, 2N+1 UPS systems, diverse A+B power feeds, the latest generation of cooling, cold-aisle containment and security systems, Heywood House should be your first choice for hosting in the Isle of Man.

We operate our own high performance, low latency MPLS network which has 10GE connectivity to London via Manchester, with resilient routes available via Ireland.

The state of the art Juniper powered network provides a solid foundation on which a range of flexible services can be offered to our customers. Metro Ethernet connections, MPLS pseudo wires, IP Transit and traditional internet connectivity can be offered. Premium bandwidth is supplied via leading IP Transit providers and customers can be safe in the knowledge that their connectivity is protected by the latest generation of DDOS protection appliances.


High density deployments are possible using the latest generation of HD in-row cooling systems. IT loads of up to 50KW per cab are possible within the selected high-density zones of our datacentre.


Self-generating power supply, not reliant on a single fuel source.


Minimum N+1 architecture throughout including power and cooling.
