Co-Location Services


Penguin are pleased to now offer co-location services within our network infrastructure. Based in our private racks within the Plusant data centre at Maidenhead, we can offer co-location services from single 1U servers up to quarter, half or full racks or even private data suites. We can also provide connectivity to your servers at speeds of up to up to 10Gbit.

Co-location of your hardware is an ideal solution when you wish to retain full control of your choice of server hardware, software and it's configuration. With co-location, we maintain your server 24/7 in a highly secure data-centre environment with multiple redundant power supplies, UPS (Uninterruptable Power Supply) backup, redundant air-conditioning systems, fire suppression systems and also a highly resilient 10Gbit network infrastructure.

Optional Extras

Additional Power Usage

Should your server require more power than is allocated within our standard packages, additional power can be purchased on 0.1A increments. Power usage is measured as the peak current consumption during booting. Our power charges also include the CRCEES Carbon Reduction Levy, meaning no additional charges are dur for this.

£5+VAT per 0.1A

Additional Power Connection

If your server has a redundant power supply, we can provide a second connection to it for you to ensure redundancy.

£5+VAT per month

Additional Network Connection

If you require an additional network connection, whether it be for a VLAN, direct link between servers or for out of band access to your server via a DRAC or iLo card, we can provide an additional network connection for you.

£5+VAT per month

Dedicated IP Address

If your website requires an SSL certificate, you will need a dedicated IP address for it. A dedicated IP address allows your site to be referenced by its own unique address, as opposed to the standard shared server IP address. All IP address usage must be justified as per RIPE guidelines.

£1+VAT per month

Permanent KVM over IP Access

KVM over IP allows you to access your server over the Internet as if you were directly connected to it. This is particularly useful for diagnosing issues such as filesystem corruption where intervention may be required on an FSCK, or for other tasks such as an operating system installation. With a permanent KVM over IP port you can access your server directly at any time.

£10+VAT per month

Fully bespoke configurations are available as to your requirements, including detailed 24/7 monitoring of your server and its applications by our network operations staff.

With this service either yourself or our staff can be alerted immediately to any issues affecting the performance or operation of your server, for example a high CPU load, web server not responding, etc.

This service is extremely flexible and customisable therefore please contact our sales team with your requirements and they will be happy to provide you with a bespoke quote.

Co-located servers may be delivered to either our main Cardiff office, or preferably directly to us at the data centre.

Colocated servers do not include any form of management service, although we are available for ad-hoc work as required. Should you require this, please see our Server Management page for further information.

All prices exclude VAT

We are also looking to shortly offer co-location services within Cardiff. Please contact our sales staff if you would like to pre-register your interest for Cardiff Co-Location.
