Access secure, state-of-the art data centre facilities and a highly experienced team.
For many businesses, it isn’t justifiable or feasible to invest in building and staffing a state-of-the-art data centre facility. Costs associated with heating, cooling, power and network connectivity are expensive. Capital investment can be enormous when it comes to ensuring that you deliver high levels of redundancy for always-on business.
Our data centres from Xperience give our clients the ability to move from on premise hardware to our state-of-the-art facilities. You can select the space and power environment that suits your needs today, with the confidence that you can scale up and grow as requirements evolve. You’ll also have the backing of our highly skilled team of IT professionals to support you throughout.
We provide a range of public and private cloud computing solutions from two high performance, high availability cloud computing platforms located in London and Belfast.

BELFAST DATA CENTRE
The BTNI data centre is a world-class facility located in Belfast. It is the only one of its kind in the whole of Northern Ireland. BT has several state-of-the-art data centres throughout the UK and last year invested £123 million in data centres globally. Our private cloud computing solutions are located in the BT Northern Ireland Data centre which is continuously monitored and optimised to ensure the best possible environment.
The centre is physically secure, environmentally controlled and proactively monitored 24x7x365. Utilising the best in infrastructure it also gives access to high speed, high capacity, resilient internet network connections.
BT has the largest number of corporate firewalls in Europe, with a dedicated Command Centre to manage them. Hadrian, the generic name for all BT Security Facilities, connects to over 100 external networks with over 50 firewalls. It is the largest, most complex firewall installation of its kind in Europe, offering secure solutions to Internet and Intranet interconnectivity. The firewall administration team is supported via BT’s CERT (Computer Emergency Response Team) which provides early sight of recent attacks and preparation for specific activity.
We operate an autonomous, a high performance, low latency, multi-homed BGP network which delivers exceptional levels of performance, reliability and best-in-class resilience. By operating our own BGP network, we can deploy more technically complex network solutions to end users who may already operate their own IP space or BGP network whilst allowing the network to scale quickly and reliably.
In order to guarantee service reliability and network resiliency, we employ multiple independent carriers who also operate their own fully resilient multi-homed networks, connected to several of the largest internet exchange points in Europe, including the London Internet Exchange (LINX) and the London Access Point (LONAP). In the event connectivity is lost to a primary provider, a secondary will take over instantaneously and with the latest in Cisco and IBM networking technologies at the heart of our infrastructure, traffic will always reach its destination via the optimal route.
During normal operations, our London cloud platform is connected to a highly resilient private IP network encompassing seven high value data centres in and around London with access to several hundred more through strategic partnerships. This network features multiple high-density Cisco ASR 9000 carrier-grade routers at the core and low-latency Cisco Nexus and Metro switches at the edge.
