Leicester data centre
Our Leicester data centre is situated one kilometre north-west of the city. It offers 620m² (6,696 ft²) of high quality, resilient and secure space across two data halls. Easily commutable from the city centre, our facility is supported by our onsite Network Operations Centre team 24/7 to prevent any point of failure.
At iomart, we pride ourselves on being the most accredited cloud company in the country, so we ensure that our Leicester centre is ISO and PCI DSS compliant. Data integrity and security is paramount across our geographically dispersed data centres, meaning we don’t rely on middlemen to manage our clients’ critical systems.
We have multiple points of presence across the world and take a proactive approach to managed hosting. Our carrier neutral centres are inter-connected via a high-performance optical fibre network that allows businesses to take full advantage of multiple Tier 1 carriers across the country.
