Volta Data Centres, developer and operator of central London’s newest purpose-designed, carrier-neutral data centre, has joined forces with bespoke co-location company EX Networks to deliver flexible, reliable and fast connectivity for companies looking to move IT support from in-house to the cloud. The partnership is ideal for media companies and start-ups across London that will be looking for the flexibility to expand in the future. Companies across the globe that require a technical presence in the capital will also benefit as EX Networks provides infrastructure and maintenance services.
EX Networks is a fast growing bespoke hosting company, so we see it as a great fit to be working with them. Moving to the cloud is a business critical decision for many SMEs;. These cloud services require a physical infrastructure: a safe and secure environment from which the business critical servers and hard drives that contain the applications and data can operate. They require fast, uninterrupted data connections, a totally secure and reliable power supply and buildings that offer the highest possible levels of security, something that Volta can offer EX Networks’ clients.Jon Arnold, Managing Director, Volta Data Centres
Working with Volta, for us, was a no-brainer. Our customers, many of whom are from outside the UK, need a hands on approach to their London data centre needs and want to work with a company they can trust. We went on a tour of Volta and were completely blown away. There are not many centres that rival it in central London in terms of overall spec and resiliency. Working with Volta means that we have a London city site that we can expand into. Being able to provide our customers with high level power density, the flexibility to expand and an excellent level of technical and customer service support, was a priority for us. The Volta team is an extension of the EX Networks’ team and we look forward to growing with Volta in the future.Volkan Dil, Managing Director, EX Networks
EX Networks has now installed its equipment at the Great Sutton Street site in order to offer a new central location to its portfolio. The company will offer its clients a team of data centre engineers, managed racks and end-to-end solutions within the Volta Data Centre.
As more companies look to move old, legacy equipment out of their offices and free up space by using co-location sites, the Volta and EX Networks partnership will enable a different location to Docklands-based centres. EX Networks was attracted to Volta’s high power availability and connectivity offering and is currently in talks with a number of clients who are looking to move their technology to the data centre.
