WHY COLOCATE WITH US
For any digital business, uptime is key. Outages can cost a business up to £16,000 per day, and the disruption to productivity can leave your staff stranded. The Portal is different. We keep your business online with a comprehensive 99.982% uptime guarantee, backed up by comprehensive SLAs.
Could your business withstand the consequences of a power outage? Colocation at The Portal ensures your data is online, even if local power goes out, so your staff can work remotely and without interruption. The facility is dual power fed with an on-site primary substation and 6 MVA of reserved power.
From one rack to a private suite, The Portal supports your business as it grows. Colocation customers can tap into our range of scalable colocation services, which provide resource and expertise on-demand.
The Portal safeguards your data with a range of security defences and deterrents. The complex is fenced and guarded by a 24/7 security presence. CCTV, access control and secured data halls prevent unauthorised access, while state-of-the-art fire detection and suppression systems protect business critical data.
Our comprehensive service level agreement provides complete peace of mind. Due to our favourable location and modern infrastructure, we can withstand disasters and maintain power when other facilities would fail. All clients benefit from our 99.982% uptime guarantee.
