US-based Nexcess wanted to expand their operations in the UK. They needed a UK-based data centre partner who could provide a high level of reliability whilst alleviating any need to hire local engineering resources or expertise. Since 2011, Nexcess have significantly expanded their IT infrastructure, workloads and connectivity with 4D to sustain their continued growth within the UK.
Nexcess is a leading provider of web hosting solutions, including shared hosting and virtual private servers, dedicated servers, server clusters and colocation.
"4D has been an incredible partner for almost a decade during our rapid growth and increased needs in the UK. Being in the US, their partnership and skilled remote hands is critical to our success as we don’t have employees in the UK."
Vik Patel | VP of Platform Operations, Nexcess
Nexcess needed a reliable and flexible data centre partner for all their services based in the UK, who could handle all day-to-day maintenance of their servers, minimise how frequently their US engineers were flying over, while also providing easy access to the London market for when overseas trips were necessary.
The Solution and the End Result
Nexcess now uses 4D for any UK hosting project, and we handle much of their UK provisioning, meaning their engineers only have to fly over for final configuration and deployment. Additionally, with Covid-19 and its related travel restrictions, Nexcess has also been able to completely rely on 4D’s engineers to help ensure their new services are pushed live, allowing them to do an entirely remote deployment.
What started out as 3 racks of services with 4D, as a single site customer in Surrey, has now turned into 17 racks’ worth of colocation space over 2 data centres.
Growth in colocation space with 4D of 600%
Launched solutions across both of our data centre sites
Solutions include high power density racks with over 10kW feeds
24/7 UK support, all year round from our expert engineers
