Paul Shannon When looking to choose a data centre provider in London, we sought one which could not only deliver mission critical colocation and network connectivity services, but act as a business partner offering advice and support to our team when needed. Since becoming a customer at LDeX, the experienced senior management and technical team have been outstanding in offering remote hands and technical support to us on a 24x7x365 basis.
FIND A HIGH QUALITY DATA CENTRE OUTSIDE CENTRAL LONDON TO SUPPORT MANAGED SERVICES PROPOSITION
Following numerous successful client wins, Managed Services and Cloud specialist ANS engaged with LDeX Group (London Data Exchange ltd) in August 2012 to provide robust data centre, connectivity and disaster recovery support.With a growing and diverse customer base across the UK, the company sought a trusted high quality data centre operator with colocation space outside central London that could provide additional scalable capacity if needed as well as fibre connectivity to Cobra Court in Manchester. This allows ANS’ customers to securely rent anything from a basic rack to a fully managed computer infrastructure solution, minimising the chance of disruption to the business.
TIMELY EXECUTION ON THE DELIVERY OF A DEDICATED CAGE
Having viewed the site and met with the senior management team, ANS was particularly impressed by LDeX’s ability to execute on the delivery of a dedicated cage within a matter of days imperative to minimise time to market.
As a result of choosing LDeX as a data centre colocation and network services provider, ANS has experienced a number of key customer wins which have been dependent on ANS having a robust data centre facility outside of the centre of London. ANS believes that LDeX has been essential in allowing the organisation to build a robust Managed Service proposition. LDeX also provides ANS with a mission critical disaster recovery location for its northern based customers based in Manchester and a production location for its Southern based customers.
