Cloud & Connectivity

Our Network

Our four, operational data centres are all carrier neutral facilities and ideally positioned to the east and west of London with high-density, ultra-low latency fibre routes. These provide connectivity into the city, and onwards into international Tier 1 markets. Via Harlow we also uniquely provide access to the diverse USA – Dublin - Amsterdam route, without needing to cross London.

For the research and scientific communities prevalent within the Cambridge-London 'UK Innovation Corridor', we provide access to the super-fast Janet network, linking our Harlow campus with thousands of research institutes and science parks both locally and globally.
