Co-location

Co-location

Cut your operational IT spend by moving your physical servers to our state-of-the-art data centres. Enjoy the lowest data centre total cost of ownership in the UK, thanks to our guaranteed power usage effectiveness (PUE) of 1.25.

For public sector organisations, co-locating your servers with MDS means they’ll be on the same campuses as the assured UKClouds' public sector cloud. So if you’re planning a move to cloud or your transformation is already underway, this proximity makes it dramatically faster and easier. We can even help you take the next steps on your cloud journey.

And for extra peace of mind, we offer dual-site redundancy and 24-7 on-site hardware and platform management by security-cleared staff.

 

Service options

As well as housing your servers, we offer a range of capabilities to enhance your IT estate and enable your journey to the cloud.

Service Options

Why choose us?

Take away the worry and overhead of running your own data centre. Our purpose-built facilities provide higher levels of security, resilience and energy-efficiency – and are typically much more cost-effective than an in-house data room.

As well as these benefits, if you are a public sector body or deliver services to public sector, housing your physical servers with MDS can accelerate your journey to the cloud, because our data centres are right next door to the assured UKClouds platform. This proximity makes for an easy transition and enables you to maintain excellent performance across your estate, whether you go 100% cloud or keep certain areas on your own hardware in our data centres.

You can also benefit from our rapid-response on-site SmartHands engineers, who can monitor and manage both your physical and virtual infrastructure 24 hours a day.

Digitising staff rotas

MDS underpins successful pilot of new public sector digital service

As part of a Central Government department’s programme to digitise large parts of its operations, it set out to build an electronic staff rota system. Its aim was to streamline the creation of rotas, improve their management, enable staff to update and maintain their availability online and view their schedules in real time.
