Remote Intelligent Hands – how we help customers stay away from the data centre…

We go above and beyond every day for our customers and actually going above and beyond is normal and no more than our customers expect from their trusted accommodating and helpful Hosting partner.

Datanet have been providing hosting and connectivity solutions to UK business since 1996 and we know that, along with sensible pricing, what business like yours really need is a helpful, accommodating, knowledgeable hosting and cloud partner.

Datanet can provide you with full 47U racks i.e. 47 locations for a 1U or standard server, that is quite a lot of space. The next step down in terms of space is the ⅓ (one-third) rack, this is a 47U rack divided in three along with separating plates so 14U with individual doors and separating shelves, each with its own lockable door, a pair of diverse power feed and a pair of redundant 1Gb internet feeds, oh yes and 24×7 access and support. At Datanet we have a variety of customers who use colocation services to their advantage in many different ways. colocation is all about housing your critical equipment in a resilient data centre with diverse power, cooling and connectivity. In this post we look at the benefits of ⅓ rack colocation.

And having trusted your important IT equipmen to us, what happens when something needs doing, well, what you can’t do remotely we will help you with our intelligent hands service, here are a few example of the hundreds of jobs we have done for our customers during lockdown:-
