11/05/2009 – Datanet wins major contract to support PEER 1
Conleth McCallan, Managing Director of DATANET.CO.UK has proudly announced a new deal with PEER 1, the global IT hosting company which has recently opened its new European Headquarters in Southampton, Hampshire.
Initially PEER 1 will be taking a number of racks in Aspen House, from where it will build and grow its UK managed and dedicated hosting services. A new build datacentre in 2008, Aspen House Fleet has provided PEER 1 with the facilities needed by its operations employees including storage, build area and desk space, along with upwards of a hundred racks. Additionally, PEER 1 can benefit from the excellent connectivity at Aspen House, via diverse and separately routed multiple Gigabit fibre connections. PEER 1’s operations team will directly support UK SuperNetwork™ customers through full maintenance access and control of its wholly-owned hardware within the Datanet location.
Speaking of the deal, Conleth McCallan said, “We are delighted that PEER 1 has made DATANET.CO.UK its datacentre partner of choice in the UK. PEER 1 can look forward to working with the Datanet professionals who thrive on delivering high class solutions with the best level of service. The team at Datanet are looking forward to a long and happy working relationship with PEER 1.”
Following the opening of Datanet’s own datacentre in June of 2008, PEER 1 was impressed with the Fleet based facility and quality of service provided by the hand-picked team located at Aspen House. Dominic Monkhouse, UK MD at PEER 1 commented, “PEER 1 was looking for a company that mirrors the level of customer service that we expect and that we provide to our own customers. In addition we needed to be sure that the chosen partner has the technical ability and infrastructure that will allow us to scale as our business grows. We are very happy to be working with Datanet and utilising its state of the art hosting facilities as the first PEER 1 datacentre operation in the UK.”
