The Vissensa & Datum Partnership

Vissensa and Datum data centre have been working together for over a decade providing seamless, efficient and structured colocation processes.

Finding the right data centre partner is crucial to the success of any IT service. At Vissensa we should know, as we have been partnering with high-quality data centre facilities at the forefront of the hosting market for over a decade.

As Datum’s first external client, Vissensa has worked with the Datum team to develop a unique understanding of the most popular solutions for any size and complexity of the business. Today this is represented by the range of rack space and power options to house different solutions, coupled with the highly flexible Managed Service catalogue that Vissensa operates for our Datum customers.

Sustainability and the environmental impact of IT services is front and centre of Vissensa’s operational commitments. Datum’s progressive data centre designs were built with sustainability in mind, and their continued development of renewable and sustainable projects remains a key part of the commitment to our partnership. You can be sure that our commitment to the environment can be widely demonstrated with Vissensa and Datum as your data centre of choice.

Location and Capability – Datum Data Centre a winning combination

The commercial merits of locating a data centre operations outside the M25 are well established, with lower footprint costs, ample power, and diverse connectivity at the top of our clients' agendas.

Couple the improved security with comprehensive design, deployment and operational management services from Vissensa, and Datum's FRN1 data centre is a winning combination for colocation in Hampshire.

Resilience and security – complete peace of mind

Put simply: downtime is not an option. Datum’s multiple layers of resilience ensure that the data centre surpasses Tier 3 uptime specifications with:

  • 2N power (from mains to rack-level PDU)
  • Dual UPS systems (battery and rotary)
  • 100% SLA based on power

The Datum site within Cody Technology Park is managed 24/7, with robust access procedures including multi-level access control, biometrics, intruder detection, and multiple CCTV cameras coving the entire site.

Datum's highly secure location benefits all clients, from larger defence, blue light or financial clients that require this high level of security for compliance, to smaller businesses who simply value the peace of mind that their business-critical IT is completely protected.
