IT services provider Freestyle IT has chosen Datum Datacentres
(Datum) for its colocation services. Freestyle IT, which has headquarters in Hampshire, United Kingdom, was established in 2002. The company offers “specialist consultancy” services and caters to companies of all sizes including those in the financial, media and public sectors. The company chose Datum because it offers a high quality support team manning a state-of-the-art facility in a secure location.
Datum, which has headquarters in Farnborough, Hampshire, United Kingdom, bills itself as providing “leading-edge carrier and cloud neutral colocation data centers to enterprises and service providers”. Datum is an Attenda company and part of UK IT Services group. The company prides itself on offering data centers that offer secure environments for “content, data and business critical IT” and provides connection to neutral networks and cloud service providers. Freestyle IT found itself in urgent need of a new provider because its previous provider required it to accept new terms which were not aligned to their business.
“We started our search by speaking to our contacts and partners in the business and undertaking a search of suitable facilities,” explained Warwick Everett, Freestyle IT’s founder and co-owner. “We had a clear idea about what we needed to support our business and our customers and using specific criteria, we drew up a shortlist of potential providers. As a specialist consultancy, we focus on ensuring everything we do has a positive impact on the business success of our customers and it was important that we found a partner who could share our consultative approach. When we met with Datum we were impressed by the facility, its secure location, the attitude of the team and the possibilities offered through the Datum Connect ecosystem of enterprises and providers. Our decision to select Datum paid off as everyone worked with us to ensure that we achieved our goal of being up and running in less than a month, complete with IT transit and IT ranges.”Do you know of any other providers gaining new customers?
