What are the Data Centre Awards?

Now in its second year, the Data Centre Awards aim to reward businesses across the sector for innovative and leading achievements across various categories. They are focused on critical industry objectives and represent the highest standard of relevance and recognition.

The awards ceremony took place at Data Centre World on March 2 this year, which has long been the venue for displaying and exhibiting the best the industry provides, whether it is service systems or products.

Why we won the award

The award was given to 4D in light of how we continued to deliver our SLAs without affecting resilience or performance, even while changing the way we worked throughout the pandemic. 82% of customers rate us as Good or Very Good at handling our crisis comms, including how we kept people updated during the lockdowns. Judges highlighted these effective communication methods, where keeping staff and clients safe became a priority and uptime or 24/7 access was undisrupted.

Our most recent customer survey found that 92% of customers rate our support team as Good or Very Good at handling ticket submissions and remote hands requests, demonstrating how reliable our customers consider us at helping maintain their systems.

We also worked at an industry-wide level to ensure we could continue to support our customers. Working closely with other UK data centres and techUK, our CEO Jack chaired a committee which co-ordinated with the Government to demonstrate how essential data centres are and got us onto the critical infrastructure list, protecting our services and our customers throughout the pandemic.

What we have to say

Jack Bedell-Pearce, co-founder and CEO of 4D Data Centres, said:

“We are delighted to see all our hard work has been recognised at the Data Centre World Awards. It is a real testament to the whole team’s efforts last year, which included creating a new portal to provide increased functionality and visibility for customers, as well as a one-stop shop for everything needed to manage their systems. We have demonstrated that a continued service and performance can be achieved alongside maintaining a legislative and compliance testing programme.

We’re proud to be a people-focused data centre operator, which always prioritises delivering the best possible service to our customers 24/7, 365 days a year. This support is trusted by our customers when it comes to any maintenance or repairs they may need.”

Reliability and problem solving have always been at the heart of 4D, with a focus on upskilling and training engineers to ensure its data centres are equipped with a high level of expertise.

As soon as a new engineer joins the company, they join a rigorous internal programme which gives them a range of certifications depending on their specialism, including CompTIA A+, CompTIA Server+, CompTIA Cloud+ and CompTIA Network+. 4D’s efforts to build a skilled and capable workforce is what earned it Microsoft Silver Partner status.
