    Ark Data Centre

    Our intention is to help our customers embrace the massive organisational benefits of the cloud, without compromising on security, without limiting access to familiar applications, and passing on the cost and green advantages of storing data in an effective, environmentally friendly manner.

    Our first challenge was to find the best hosting solution for our cloud portfolio; one that could deliver against even the most stringent security requirements at an affordable cost. With the recent recession leading to ever tighter budgets, we understood that customers wanted better data availability increased security and environmentally friendly data centre operations, all at a lower cost.

    Capita started working with Ark Data Centres in 2009, a company with leading infrastructure and cooling systems, as well as ample space to store. Since then, we have worked with Ark to develop standard infrastructures, processes and services rather than creating bespoke solutions, and as a result our customers have benefited greatly from lower cost data centre solutions. Given the success and customer satisfaction of the projects we had already delivered using Ark data centre facilities, we selected them as our preferred supplier of secure, energy efficient data centre space for Capita Private Cloud.
