One of our three Scottish sites

Our Medway facility is located to the west of Edinburgh in Sighthill. With easy access from road, rail and air, making it an ideal choice for serving the city and surrounding areas. The facility offers colocation, managed hosting and disaster recovery. The Medway colocation space is “move-in ready”, pre-built and pre-configured for the rapid installation of your hardware, and offers footprints from a quarter of a rack to multiple rack cages.

Location

Superb access from road, rail and air.

Medway Datacentre is one of our three Scottish sites. Based in Edinburgh, the facility offers colocation, managed hosting and disaster recovery services. Cars have easy access to Medway via the A71 and The City of Edinburgh Bypass. If you’re travelling by rail, you can alight at Edinburgh Waverley Station. From here, you can get the train to Springburn. Then it’s just a 10-minute walk. Edinburgh’s Skylink buses also travel from the city’s airport to Bankhead Medway.

The benefits of Pulsant colocation

With our colocation service, you simply move your equipment into our datacentre and we will look after the costly supporting infrastructure: building fabric, power, cooling, connectivity, and physical security. As your IT needs grow, your datacentre footprint can scale accordingly.

  • We’ll take care of your systems and data so you can take care of your business

    We appreciate that maintaining high levels of uptime is essential: in business-critical or customer-facing IT systems any downtime will result in loss of business and reputation. That’s why we have multiple levels of equipment redundancy to maintain a functioning datacentre environment even in the face of major disruptions to IT operations such as power outages.

    Every Pulsant datacentre is designed from the ground up to be secure and reliable.

    • Multiple UPS banks
    • Diverse N+1 power supply
    • Equipment redundancy
    • On-site diesel generators
    • Multiple redundant cooling systems
    • Multiple diverse network connections
  • A local facility for maximum convenience

    We recognise that you want your own engineers to have access to your servers, so we have datacentres across the UK, allowing you to choose a location that is convenient for you. Your equipment will always be available to your engineers, subject to the access protocols of our datacentre security.

    Our expert datacentre engineers are available and can perform many routine or emergency tasks for you. We call this “remote hands”, where our engineers act on your behalf.

    • Ten facilities located across the UK
    • Proximity to road and rail links
    • 24-hour access
    • Full range of supplementary services
  • Looking after your systems and data is our prime concern

    Our datacentres offer a high level of physical security for your systems. With multiple levels of access control, internal and external CCTV, on-site staff, perimeter fencing, escorted visitors, you can be sure that your servers are well protected. Pulsant’s ISO 27001 accreditation for IT security covers all of our datacentre facilities.

    Where you have heightened security needs, we can provide secure cages to isolate your racks or even dedicated private rooms with their own secure access controls.

    • Secure access controls
    • Internal and external CCTV
    • ISO 270001 accreditation for IT security
