Your Essex Data Centre

SDC Hosting & Support delivers Colchester’s first purpose-built data centre


Data Centre in Colchester, Essex

SDC Hosting and Support opened Colchester’s first purpose-built data centre as part of a six-figure investment in autumn 2020 following demand from clients for a highly secure, efficient, accessible infrastructure environment in a convenient location. Our wholly-owned Essex data centre, with excellent transport links to London and East Anglia, offers dedicated and colocation servers which facilitate the smooth running of your IT infrastructure and support your Disaster Recovery (DR) plans.

Dedicated Servers

By renting one of our dedicated servers you will benefit from the security of an off-site location, the support of our team who will manage, backup and maintain your server in accordance with your instructions, and access to the high levels of processing power your company needs, without the significant outlay of purchasing and housing your own servers.

Because your data is stored away from your location but in the UK, it meets the requirements of GDPR as well as ensuring minimal disruption to your business from a DR perspective. Servers are a scalable, future proofing solution, so talk to us today about your needs and we will advise you on the best specification for your businesses.

Colocation Services

By opting for our colocation services, you are renting  space in our purpose-built data centre to house your own server, which you may choose to maintain and manage yourself, with our support, or a combination of both. If space is in an issue at your premises or you want the added security of off-site scalable servers without the prohibitive costs, then SDC can help you to improve your connectivity as well as your DR provision.
