Business benefits of using a data centre
Volta is working tirelessly to educate different industries of the benefits they stand to receive by choosing to host their IT equipment in a data centre. For example:
- Financial Services - businesses that operate in the financial sector have to adhere to the highest standards of data protection, security and regulatory compliance. Not only this, the industry also demands 100% connectivity to support trading infrastructures to ensure trade reporting is carried out in a timely manner and trading data is stored in accordance with regulatory guidelines and timelines.

- Media – The UK has a thriving creative industry in film and media. This involves large amounts of content being created and shared online and when this content needs to be transferred quickly and reliably - the scale of connectivity becomes of hugely important. Read more about how Volta can support the Media industry through providing highly resilient and a well-connected data facility
- Public Sector – The UK public sector is undergoing a ‘digital transformation’ which is spearheaded by the Government as it looks to make large efficiency and cost savings. Public Sector organisations are waking up to the realisation that large savings can be made by no longer maintaining their own dedicated IT service centres with all of the associated costs and space requirements – instead they can benefit from hosting their data in extremely secure data centres. Additionally, Volta has direct access to the N3 network, meaning that businesses within the Health sector can rest assured that they receive dedicated access to the N3 network. If you’re considering hosting your data in a data centre, then read our eBook on the 10 questions you should consider before doing so.
Customers housed within Volta’s central London data centre benefit from the latest cooling technology, on premise and in-rack security, and state-of-the art power resilience that many other data centres simply cannot provide.
