Colo-X data centre brokerage iconWhy source data centre and colocation services through us

Our approach is a consultative one. We prefer to talk to a buyer to ensure we fully understand all the relevant issues around their data centre and colocation requirements.

We can usually suggest some initial options, fine tune a shortlist of ideas and provide some immediate ballpark pricing. Further to discussing this with our client, we will prepare formal quotations.

The best choice for most colocation buyers is not usually based on price alone, but on a range of factors. This is where our extensive experience and expertise in the data centre and colocation industry can really be of benefit.

We then introduce our client to the chosen suppliers. Our service is FREE to our clients, and we earn a standard, fixed commission paid by the successful supplier if a deal is done.
