SDC Launches Colchester’s First Data Centre

SDC Hosting and Support has completed the design and build of a purpose-built data centre, the first of its kind in the Colchester area, following a six-figure investment.

The data centre, which is located on the Colchester Business Park in North Colchester, comes as demand rises for highly secure, efficient, and accessible infrastructure environments. As some businesses look to downsize their premises in the wake of COVID-19, a data centre offers an off-site IT solution which frees up storage room used for servers and offers a secure, managed, GDPR-compliant solution.


Commenting on the completion of the project, Adrian Morris, SDC Hosting and Support co-owner and technical director, said:

“It’s a fantastic achievement to have built Colchester’s very first data centre. Local businesses are in a period of transition, with so much happening online and remotely now. We believe our data centre will be a central part of this new way of working.

“By renting one of our dedicated servers, businesses benefit from the security of an offsite location, the support of an onsite team who manage, backup and maintain the server, and access to rapidly scalable levels of processing power without the significant outlay of purchasing, housing and running servers in-house.”

The wholly-owned Essex data centre, with convenient transport links to London and East Anglia, offers dedicated and colocation servers which facilitate the operation of IT infrastructure and support Disaster Recovery (DR) plans.
