Make the most of Suffolk-based rack space within a Co-location data centre

We offer a variety of server hosting solutions for clients across Suffolk, Norfolk and Essex who may be looking to find a local data centre to host their servers or co-locate with. 

You may simply be looking to rent rack space for your physical servers. Or you might be looking to work with an external IT Service Provider that can host your virtual servers.  

Our approach is to work with clients to identify the most effective and scalable solution for their needs. We understand that your business may be growing, and you need to find a simplified data centre environment that can meet your needs now, and in the future.

At Lucid Systems, we offer clients a choice of flexible rack solutions that are designed with resilience and security in mind. You may want to transfer your existing server into our data centre. Or you may be looking to install additional servers as part of your disaster recovery plans. You may even be looking for a more cost-effective alternative to Microsoft Azure.

Whatever the scenario, our team of trained IT technicians are here to help your business benefit from a highly resilient and efficient data centre rack solution.

Our Co-location rack space is in the heart of Suffolk

We can offer rack space in two areas within our Suffolk heartland: one in Wherstead, the other in Leiston. Both are easily accessible from our Ipswich head office.

Our proximity to each data centre means you can feel confident that you can benefit from a carefully managed, and fully operational rack solution. Our rack space comes equipped with uninterrupted power supplies (UPS) and backup generators with automatic failover. This means that you can feel confident that your connection will remain online with a 99.9% uptime promise.

And with 24/7 security monitoring, remote locking systems, comprehensive CCTV and authorised access personnel systems in place, you can have peace of mind that your servers will be always be kept safe and secure.

We offer flexible colocation services

We work collaboratively with business throughout Suffolk, Norfolk, and Essex to find the most suitable options for your needs.

Our colocation services are designed to work flexibly, giving you the scope to adapt and change with your business. We understand that you need to have an IT infrastructure in place that improves immediate efficiency as well as having scalability to adapt to new trends and new technologies.

As well as renting virtual private servers from us, we can become an extension of your technical team. Our remote hands' services mean that we can perform various on-site services (such as replacing failed equipment, moving network cables, or swapping disks) on your behalf. This can improve your time efficiency and enable your in-house staff to focus on other tasks.

Co-locations can enhance your disaster recovery plans.

At Lucid Systems, we advise businesses to make the most of strategic disaster recovery plans.

Although everything we do is based upon improving your resilience and security, we know that it’s always better to plan for the worst-case scenario. That is why we recommend that businesses consider using our Co-location as part of a comprehensive backup solution.

Businesses who use our virtual private servers (either for replication purposes or as their primary production server) rely on us because they know that they can trust that their connection will remain online. If a technical fault (or malicious attack) arises, our proactive management means that we can identify the issue and if necessary, we can switch your servers to your backup replicas. This swift response to your data recovery means that your business will be protected, and you can remain operational with minimal impact.

We believe that all businesses should have an effective disaster recovery plan in place. And we take the time to educate our clients on how they can use Co-location rack space as part of a stringent disaster recovery strategy.

Working seamlessly with your budget

Choosing to use our virtual servers may be more cost-effective than you may think.

We know that you need an IT solution that works with your budget. Clients are often surprised to realise that using our infrastructure to host your virtual servers can be a cost-effective alternative to other options such as Microsoft Azure.

We can seamlessly migrate all your applications and services across to our hosted servers, allowing you to make the most of cloud computing technologies.  

We listen carefully to our clients and we understand what you need from your IT infrastructure. We can create virtual servers to match your business requirements, from the CPU to the RAM and even the storage space. This means that you only ever need to pay for exactly what you need. And if your business changes, then your virtual server can scale up or down accordingly.

For businesses on a budget, this means that you can remain in complete control. There are no hidden charges or unexpected extras. Just a fixed monthly cost that you can rely upon.
