Data centre management.

Let us take care of your physical data centre assets, so you don’t have to. Simplify management and maintenance. As a cloud-centric managed service provider (MSP), with significant global experience in managing data centre hardware for some of the world’s largest brands, we are perfectly placed to support the management and maintenance of your data centre hardware.

It may seem like the whole world is moving to the public cloud, but the reality for most businesses is a more considered, hybrid approach. For many businesses, data centres will always be part of their strategy, especially where they need to meet stringent data sovereignty rules or need to guarantee performance for mission-critical applications.
An IDC survey shows more than 80% of organisations reported repatriating workloads or data from the public cloud to a private cloud or on-premise data centre.

The data centre is shifting, let us guide and support your business through these changes.

According to Gartner, by 2025, 85% of infrastructure strategies will integrate on-premise, colocation, cloud, and edge delivery options, compared with 20% in 2020.

For those whose future is a hybrid approach to data centre infrastructure and cloud; many businesses wonder how to manage, proactively maintain, and update the physical assets in their private data centre environment, whilst simultaneously delivering business needs in terms of innovation and cloud transformation.

One bill, one point of contact.

Whether you have an on-premises data centre, or a hybrid cloud and data centre set up, we offer a range of onsite and remote services that go beyond break-fix, including proactive monitoring and maintenance, asset lifecycle, and warranty management.

We leave your IT teams free to focus on more strategic work, with the peace of mind that if anything breaks, we’ll fix it – often before you’re even aware of a problem.

No matter which hardware vendors you have bought from or what care plans you have in place,
we take care of it all – one bill, one point of contact.
