About Us

We are an innovation driven digital infrastructure organisation of industry leading experts in intelligent design, engineering, security, science, research, and sustainability.  Headquartered in London (UK), with over 200MW of IT capacity live or under development, we develop and operate sustainable data centres for some of the world’s largest technology companies, across the UK, Europe, Middle East, and Asia.
