The central London data centre

Situated on Great Sutton Street, the Volta Data Centres facility provides businesses with state-of-the-art certified and accredited data services in the beating heart of London. It means our capital city-based partners reach their global audiences and clients with low latency, high performance connectivity, and 100% uptime service level agreement (SLA), as standard.

Not only is the facility walking distance from Liverpool Street Station and the Barbican tube stop, but its specific location on two separate diverse power rings within London’s upgraded 33kV network means Volta is one of the most power-resilient data centres in the UK.

A carrier-neutral data facility with 20+ diverse entry points and over 25 carriers on-site, Volta customers access the level of connectivity they need from the providers they prefer. It means diversity, flexibility, and cost-efficiency, with the power to adapt, and the ability to stay agile.

However, a prime location, 100% uptime, and ultra-resilient connectivity mean nothing without formidable security. That’s why the Volta Data Centres facility is manned with security guards 24/7, equipped with biometric access control, and provides reliable backups and UPS devices to protect your data against outages.
