Co-location

Utilise a secure, enterprise class data centre inexpensively.

Total’s Co-location service provides rack space in a secure UK data centre (DC) that delivers 99.999% availability. You get use of a state of the art facility without the burden and expense of running it yourself and at very attractive prices.   

Why would you want it?

Developing and operating your own data centre (DC) is costly. Total’s Co-location service gives you rack space in a highly secure enterprise class DC without capital investment.

With Total’s Co-location service you benefit from:

  • a highly secure UK facility
  • using a Tier III+ enterprise class DC
  • 99.999% availability
  • a monitorable Service Level Agreement (SLA) with non-performance penalties
  • the flexibility to scale up or down month-to-month
  • a minimum commitment of 1U of space
  • paying only for what you need, with monthly billing
  • the option of fixing prices for up to five years.

What Total do

Total provides you with serviced rack space in a highly secure state of the art DC (in Slough).

Space is available in 1U, 2U, 5U, 10U, 20U or full rack (42U) units, in a standard (19 inches wide) rack, with the ability to scale up or down month to month.  

The space includes a monthly power allowance that is sufficient for most server workloads – see right. However should you have power hungry hardware (such as a blade centre) that causes you to exceed your hourly power allocation, overconsumption will be billed on an hourly basis at 18 pence per kilowatt hour (kWh).

The racks are housed in an air-conditioned, temperature controlled, managed facility that contains a dedicated, on-site primary sub-station and is managed to provide 99.999% availability (of power, cooling and the overall facility).

Each rack is connected to a secure VLAN, which can optionally be connected to your own service, Total’s very fast Tier 1 (ISP grade) internet connection or a dedicated, uncontended layer 2 point-to-point connection.

The facility is staffed 24x365 by security staff vetted to BS 7858. Only pre-authorised individuals can access the site, all rack visits are chaperoned and each rack is individually locked.  

We can extend your co-location service to include backup and DR within the same facility.

Prerequisites

Hardware must be compatible with a 19 inches width rack.

Why Total?

Total utilise a recently built, highly secure, state of the art, Tier III+ DC. Security is controlled and maintained in accordance with ISO 27001.
