Our unique history

We've built our reputation helping hundreds of organisations like yours leave behind reactive systems and processes while keeping pace with an ever-changing threat landscape.


With over 20 years of experience at the forefront of technology developments, this is our company story:

  • 1999

    The beginning

    David Barker, our founder and CTO, began his own business building websites at just 14 years old. His business offering soon expanded into web hosting and domain registration.

  • 2007

    Our first data centre

    With investment from Keith and Jack Bedell-Pearce, 4D opened its first data centre, realising an ambitious goal of David’s he developed when he was reselling rack space in the early noughties.


  • 2017

    Our growth

    With David and Jack running the Byfleet data centre over the last ten years, the business had grown. It was time to expand and we opened a second data centre in Gatwick.


  • Now

    Where we're going

    We continue to expand the number of HPC racks we host, helping companies utilise this new generation of computing technology.

    We also have a close eye on immersion cooling, quantum computing, 5G and other future technologies, to ensure our customers are always given industry-leading solutions.

4D Awards

4D is committed to utilising industry-leading technologies. Among these, we’ve deployed sophisticated cooling systems in our data centres, including adiabatic cooling towers. This high-capacity cooling allows us to host HPC infrastructure, and they’re also highly energy-efficient, leading to us winning ‘Best Energy Efficiency Project of the Year’ from the DCS awards and ‘Project of the Year’ at the Electrical Review Awards. This energy-efficiency also helps in our drive to be eco-friendly, and you can learn more about our Eco Credentials here.
