Moving racks – the Datanet way

Moving your IT to the data centre

In 2022, we moved over sixty customer racks during our transition to our new location at ARK Farnborough.  We know a thing or two about the implications and the complexity involved in moving racks with minimal downtime and we are ideally placed to help you with detailed panning, preparation and relocation – all with minimal disruption to your end-users.

Why hosting with Datanet at ARK is the best sustainability option for you

Data centres are vital, housing the beating heart of the internet, pumping data between all our connected devices and using a lot of energy in the process. This is why sustainability is at the heart of all operations carried out here on campus so ultimately this benefits you when you colocate with us in reducing your carbon footprint and increasing your energy efficiency.  ARK really is state-of-the-art and you can find out more about the sustainability innovations here.
