A Flexible Approach to Colocation

Historically data centre space is sold on power and space, this has two down sides; firstly you would have to buy your space in advance often limiting future expansion and creating a high point of entry, secondly you would often run out of power before you ran out of space or visa-versa.

At ServerHouse we provide a flexible and effective alternative to colocation by offering rack space on a power only basis. In other words you pay for the power you use and not the rack space.

While using Pay for Power you will still benefit from the same level of service as other clients as well as our additional support services, including tape rotation, off site backup and service monitoring. To find out more please contact us to speak to a member of our team.
