Colocation remains a critical service today as the demand for enterprise-class Colocation is being driven by environmental regulations and an increasingly online presence.

Our Colocation solutions are designed to meet the requirements of the most data intensive businesses with robust power, security and service level features. Colocation solution offers high availability, bulletproof resiliency and military-grade connectivity into your IT infrastructure, backed by world-class support, fast deployment and preconfigured racks.

Inside the Data Centre, the dual design means there is no single point of failure. Best in class Network switches and Connectivity to the cabinet together with our technology provides space, power savings, flexibility and support to multiple client interfaces.

Virtual1 Colocation

Colocation is ideal for businesses who have already invested in hardware and are looking to sweat those assets or looking to centralise their business critical applications and data. Ideally customers want to host that infrastructure in a Tier 3, highly resilient data centre, privately connected to a customer’s WAN. This is often the first step towards the adoption of a future cloud strategy.

Exponential-e SDN-Enabled Colocation

Exponential-e Colocation solution offers high availability, bulletproof resiliency and military-grade connectivity into your IT infrastructure, backed by world-class support, fast deployment and preconfigured racks.

What Makes Exponential-e Data Centre Services Different?

Exponential-e's Network integration is second to none, both inside the Data Centre and outside through our Network infrastructure. All connectivity to your services is fully diverse utilising a minimum of two fibre routes into the Data Centre facility, which is a fully resilient core node within the Exponential-e 100GigE Network.

Multi-terabit optical transport Network is enabled across our UK Data Centres, able to leverage dense wavelength division multiplexing (DWDM) for increased bandwidth utilisation at the highest carrier-class standards.

Inside the Data Centre, the dual design means there is no single point of failure. Best in class Network switches and Connectivity to the cabinet together with our technology provides space, power savings, flexibility and support to multiple client interfaces.

With integrated Cloud-ready and software-defined Networking (SDN) capabilities. Exponential-e removes the connectivity limitations of different services across Data Centres, Clouds and the corporate WAN, everywhere.

Driven by underlying multi-terabit SDN core fabric architecture and NFV capability, high performance services satisfy critical workload requirements and provide predictable Cloud SLAs.

Multipoint to multipoint communication between Data Centre servers, irrespective of geographic location, increases your application-aware capability when it comes to optimising Network performance, policy-driven automation, Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery.

High-performance storage resources independent of server platforms are interconnected into your racks. As storage is managed centrally, custom built storage tiers fit your budget and performance, including options for performance-tiered flash storage for different applications. Set how and where you access your data to enable increased control, availability and efficiency. The high speed storage area Network (SAN) will meet your bandwidth requirements to handle data traffic at peak business times.

Unmatched Private and Dedicated Connectivity

Bringing your IT infrastructure closer together enables a better service experience. We provide enterprise-class Connectivity with a solution delivered on your LAN enabling private and secure IT on the clean side of the Firewall. Our private dedicated Connectivity bypasses the public Internet, providing predictable latency and high performance access to your IT environment.

We understand that Colocation, no matter how secure and how energy efficient, needs to be always available. Exponential-e’s Colocation service comes with up to 10Gbps connectivity delivered over our 100GigE core network. Network built and integrated for 100% uptime.
