Following a £3.7 million investment, Custodian Data Centres, based in Maidstone, has confirmed that it is now supporting over £1.5 billion of client turnover.
Custodian’s clients include high-tech companies, legal firms, shipping, media, accountancy and retail companies. Kent clients include multi-million turnover companies such as Holiday Extras and the KM Group, however Custodian Data Centres pride themselves on their ability to look after all sizes of business. Their portfolio ranges from individuals and SMEs to large multi-nationals, with around 70% of their clients being SMEs.
A data centre is a place where companies can house and operate their IT infrastructure in a secure, highly connected, powered and cooled facility. Data centres are also often used as part of back-up and disaster recovery systems, where preservation of data or ability to be “always on” is mission-critical to a business’s strategy.
Custodian Data Centres believes that its location in the south east is an asset that many companies are keen to utilise. Located in the gateway to Europe, their site is able to provide inner London connectivity in a safe outer London location, which is also more affordable. Having invested £1 million into a new fibre network, Custodian operates over 215km of connectivity in and out of Kent.
Rowland Kinch, Custodian’s CEO says “Most IT directors understand that their equipment is mission critical to their organization – data centres are able to meet business requirements at a lower cost than if the service was kept in-house. They have the ability to have businesses up and running within hours, as well as provide the flexibility to grow alongside an organisation.”
Custodian has been rigorously audited by government organisations looking to provide cost-effective solutions and is home to some local NHS services, and providing support to Kent County Council, Shepway and Medway District Councils.
Following the company’s recent investment, they are now planning to triple their current capacity and recruit over 10 members of staff to help manage the facility. With a projected growth percentage of overall turnover of 200% Custodian is hoping that more local Kent companies explore the benefits of using a data centre and therefore can also enjoy business growth.
