"The first was to partner with industry-leading vendors, which ensures we deploy the most reliable and innovative technology solutions throughout the facility. The second was to gain accreditations that would reflect our commitments to uptime, security, resiliency and continual improvement. The third was to develop a reputation for industry-leading customer service, which is something all of the founding members are extremely passionate about."
The facility is both Cloud and Carrier-neutral, with superfast connectivity to the London Internet Exchange (LINX) and multiple Cloud Platforms.
