Minimal energy consumption
Building 5000 is the greenest data centre in the UK. So when you choose us as your hosting provider, you will significantly reduce your company’s carbon consumption. As carbon allowance payments under the CRC Energy Efficiency Scheme become a reality, our green approach will make a real difference to your bottom line.
Power for Intensive Computing
Building 5000 has 11MVA of available power, which is far more than the average data centre. So you can fit more processing power in less rack space without worrying about whether we can support your electrical power requirements
The data centre is built using a modular ‘pod’ system. Each of these pods has its own electrical room, so that you can use your allocated space in whatever way suits your business’s needs best.
Intelligent Pricing Plans
Buying space in the traditional way does not suit everyone. If you want more flexibility, you can buy a power allocation for a flat rate per kW. Our racks range in power and cooling density from 2kW to 15kW, so opting for this approach means you can choose how you use that allocation.
PEER 1 Hosting has a second data centre in Fleet, Hampshire, which offers 400m2 of technical space to any businesses that require high availability solutions deployed across two UK data centres. These clients can also take advantage of our global load-balanced solution for continuous uptime.
Portsmouth is ideally located for businesses based along the M3 corridor and is just an hour by car from London – perfect for colocation customers who need to upgrade or maintain their servers regularly.
