Media Datacentre opened it's doors in 2023, but we've been around for a long time providing solutions for the Media industry.

Colocation is the term referred to customers bringing their own infrastructure (typically servers) to be hosted in a datacentre. This is typically done to avoid having to host the servers yourself.

We have of course Internet connectivity, to connect your servers to the Internet and be publicly available. We also have other connectivity such as satellite, TV (digital terrestrial TV), FM and DAB. For TV, FM and DAB, we can only receive signals within our local coverage area.

Sure, no problem, we'll even throw in a cup of tea/coffee and some biscuits! It will need to be arranged in advance and you'll need to bring photographic ID. Just get in touch with us and request a datacentre tour and we'll confirm availability.

Most of our services are provisioned immediately but some products and services need to be customised to you, this means that we need to physically build your server and load the operating system based on your order.
