Why Infrastructure Hosting?

Flexible, scalable, high-performance infrastructure resources 

Colt's infrastructure hosting solutions provide access to flexible resources to replace or extend your own infrastructure without capital investment on your part. You can take advantage of the latest technology, overseen by experts, to underpin delivery of your critical business applications.

Keeping your IT infrastructure aligned with changing business needs can be a constant challenge, especially if your data centre is nearing capacity. And if your in-house teams are already stretched, it will be all they can do to maintain day-to-day operations – there won't be time to assess new technology or pursue other strategic developments.

  • Can your IT infrastructure provide the scalability and performance the business expects?
  • Would outsourcing specific tasks, like storage, help your in-house teams refocus on strategy and innovation?
  • Is your data centre operating efficiently enough to meet your organisation's green agenda?
  • Are you keen to investigate new technology solutions, like virtualisation, but don't have the skills or capacity in house to do so?

Colt's range of infrastructure hosting solutions enable you to extend your existing IT infrastructure, or replace part or all of it, without making capital investment. We can, for example, provide you with a flexible extension to your grid; take over and improve a specific activity, such as storage or website hosting; or provide you with a fully virtualised, easily scalable infrastructure.

You'll be able to reduce dependence on your own data centre space. Instead you can rely on our expertise to manage your service in one of our secure data centres, where cooling and power are optimised to reduce consumption and costs and help protect the environment. You'll reduce IT management overheads and release your teams to focus on what really matters to your business.

With 20data centres in 23 European countries, we're where you need us to be – including making sure your data is where it needs to be for compliance purposes.
