As service continuity and reliability is paramount to a hosting provider such as Ultraspeed, the company needed to find a colocation provider who could guarantee the highest level of connectivity.
 
In order to identify the best colocation provider that suited its needs, Ultraspeed conducted a stringent assessment of potential facilities, visiting over 10 different London data centres.
Ultraspeed selected Telehouse for its proven track record of reliability and industry leading data centre facilities. As the most experienced provider of premium data centres in the UK, Telehouse’s London Docklands and City sites provide a strong base for Ultraspeed’s hosting offering. Naturally, Telehouse became home to Ultraspeed’s main IT infrastructure, which supports mission-critical business functions such as 24x7 customer service and support.

Jordan Gross, commercial director of Ultraspeed comments:
“Telehouse emerged as the cost 
experienced, trustworthy partner offering the highest levels of reliability in the industry. The company’s facilities are world class, and the fact that Telehouse hosts all the major ISPs demonstrates its continued strength of service.”

Thanks to Telehouse’s remote-hands service, minor IT issues, such as rebooting servers, are dealt with by Telehouse’s onsite, expert engineering teams as part of the company’s managed service package, guaranteeing Ultraspeed complete peace of mind and convenience. Ultraspeed also draws key benefits from Telehouse’s London location and geographical dispersion of the individual sites, allowing Ultraspeed to support customers requiring disaster recovery. As a major internet hub, Telehouse is also able to provide Ultraspeed with unrivalled connectivity and access to international Tier – 1 carriers such as Abovenet, Interoute and TeliaSonera.
