Overview

Our Co-Location services give you access to purpose-built data centres with greater security, resilience and network performance than you could cost-effectively provide yourself. Our service also enhances your IT agility, allowing you to quickly expand exactly when you need to.

Providing power, cooling and space in data centres is expensive, yet enterprises constantly need more capacity to run their business applications for data storage, and for disaster recovery. The cost of building or upgrading your own data centre can be prohibitive, so Co-Location provides a more practical and affordable solution.

Our UK, Germany and global Co-Location services offer the highest quality, most secure and best performing connectivity in the market for a predictable monthly fee. We provide data centre space, power and cooling, creating an effective environment for you to host your IT equipment.

UK & Ireland

We have more than 20 years’ experience of Co-Location and now operate eight data centres across the UK and Ireland, including London, Swindon, Leeds and Dublin. We help you save money on power usage, while meeting your security and quality requirements.

Germany

Vodafone has two high performance data centres in Germany linked to its global network. These provide safe and secure facilities.

Global

We offer Co-Location services in 99 markets, across 38 countries and five continents, from Vodafone facilities and through our partnership with Equinix. Our risk-free service offers a minimum of N+1 power and cooling architectures, early warning fire detection and suppression systems, and government-grade physical security.
