Every business needs to be online, all the time. If customers can't see or buy your products and services on the Internet or contact you, your business will soon start to feel the pain. However, it can be extremely expensive - not to mention risky - keeping your web site, email servers and other mission-critical application servers on site. Housing your own equipment demands specialised facilities, with physical security, fire and network protection and staff to monitor the equipment and maintain connectivity 24/7.
This is why a growing number of businesses are choosing to house their equipment off-site in world-class data centres. hSo's co-location services are delivered through our network of world-class data facilities in convenient business locations, so your equipment is accessible for maintenance or upgrade 24/7.
- How Does It Work?
hSo co-location lets you house your servers, in addition to any supporting equipment, at world-class data centres in key business locations in the UK. The centres' security systems and 24-hour security guards mean that your servers are protected from the risk of theft, vandalism or damage as well as being protected against risks from fire, power failure, over-heating or network failure. However, secure doesn't mean inaccessible: authorised staff from your organisation can access your equipment 24 hours a day when they need to.
By using our co-location services, you can rest assured that your organisation will have access to resilient, very high bandwidth Internet connectivity from multiple Tier 1 carriers, with peering arrangements worldwide ensuring that your data travels quickly on logical routes around the world.
- Why hSo?
We have expertise in hosting, ranging from fully-managed services to simple co-location in world-class data centres, protected by 24-hour security guards and sited at major network interchange points in key UK business areas.
We connect your premises directly to our data centres via our own resilient, high-speed MPLS network and use our established relationships with Tier 1 carriers to provide high-speed Internet access over logical routes at highly competitive costs.
As with all our managed services, hSo's co-location services incorporate pro-active monitoring from our technical network operations centre (NOC). hSo provides 24 hour a day customer service by phone or email and industry-leading service level agreements, so that you can be sure that you are working with a trusted partner.
