We have a great track-record of helping organisations drive value from their IT.

A state-of-the-art facility of 28,000 square feet in three data halls

Located just 20 minutes from the City of London. Modular design and industry-leading infrastructure allow us to accommodate varied customer requirements, including colocation, managed services and on-site cloud. The South London colocation space is “move-in ready”, pre-built and pre-configured for the rapid installation of your hardware, and offers footprints ranging from part of a single rack to a secure cage housing multiple racks.


Superb access from road, rail and air.

Our South London colocation space consists of two halls and a modular design. Here we offer managed colocation services just 20 minutes away from Central London. Travelling by train takes 40 minutes. One of the quickest ways is from London Bridge Station to East Croydon Rail Station. Then it’s a short bus ride to Imperial Way. Driving takes a little bit longer – around an hour – if you follow the A23. Travelling by air? London City is the closest airport to Croydon. Other nearby airports include London Gatwick (16 miles).

The benefits of Pulsant colocation

With our colocation service, you simply move your equipment into our data centre and we will look after the costly supporting infrastructure: building fabric, power, cooling, connectivity, and physical security. As your IT needs grow, your data centre 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 data centre environment even in the face of major disruptions to IT operations such as power outages.

    Every Pulsant data centre 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 data centres 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 data centre security.

    Our expert data centre 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
    • Ideally located to major road & rail links
    • 24-hour access
    • Full range of supplementary services
  • Looking after your systems and data is our prime concern

    Our data centres 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 data centre 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 27001 accreditation for IT security
