More and more businesses and organisations across the island of Ireland are discovering the benefits of a presence at Prescient’s modern large-scale data centre strategically based in Coleraine. Our customers include financial, manufacturing and IT services companies, and a growing number of cloud-service providers. We offer carrier neutrality and the lowest-latency connections to Dublin and North America available from anywhere in the UK. From rack space for a few servers or require an entire hall together with a package of managed support services, we are here to help.
Colocation with Prescient:
The flexible solution for fast-changing times
This last year has been difficult for everyone, and we’ve all had to adapt the ways we live and work. In the past, many businesses housed their servers and key IT equipment on their own premises. But with buildings frequently unattended due to staff working at home, there are fewer people to ensure that critical IT infrastructure is secure and running smoothly.
Relocating to Prescient’s high-security data centre solves this problem. As a Tier-3 facility, you are assured of the very best levels of resilience and reliability.
At the same time, other companies have needed to make changes to their IT infrastructure to enable their staff to work remotely. Hosting new infrastructure in our purpose-built data centre with its choice of connectivity options can make the process – and any future changes – significantly easier.
And in many cases, with our flexible terms, relocation support and competitive communications carrier options, we’ve been able to save customers money too.
Furthermore, post Brexit, businesses in Ireland seeking a data centre presence within the UK need look no further than Prescient.
Our location in Coleraine is around 3 hours’ drive from Dublin and a mere 30 miles from the border near Letterkenny. It provides world-class facilities that are in step with – or ahead of – the best data centres on the UK mainland, and avoids the hassle of flights or ferries when you visit.

Prescient’s Northern Ireland data centre:
The local solution with world-class standards
Whatever you want, just ask!
Prescient can offer a flexible range of options, including rack sizes, PDU types, short-term contracts, bespoke design, and support services.
And with hot desks and permanent office space, plus build rooms to run, install and test your hardware – and even a kitchen and showers to help you stay refreshed – our data centre is as comfortable for you and your staff as is it for your servers.
Prescient is the first commercial carrier-neutral data centre in Northern Ireland.
This enables you to select and configure your communications to suit your needs – and change them as necessary.
You could also choose to enjoy the benefit of multiple paths and multiple carriers for redundancy and resilience, or utilise different carriers for the same routes for performance comparisons.
Our Northern Ireland colocation facility has been painstakingly built to Tier 3 concurrently maintainable standard.
In fact, every part of every critical system is designed to meet the requirements of Tier 3 (or, in most instances, exceed them).
This means that neither maintenance or an external fault could cause you a loss of power, cooling or connectivity.
We are located in the Atlantic Link Enterprise Campus, adjacent to the University of Ulster in Coleraine (a little over an hour’s drive from Belfast and just 3 hours from Dublin).
Our unique proximity to the GTT transatlantic cable landing station enables the UK’s lowest latency connections to North America at just 56ms.
This is empowering growth of the digital economy throughout Ireland, connecting both local and international providers of IT services and cloud solutions.
Our multi-dimensional approach to data centre security provides impressive levels of protection for your data and IT.
We’ve personnel on site 24/7. The perimeter is surrounded by 3-metre-high anti-climb fencing. Our hi-def CCTV systems monitor all interior, exterior strategic locations and access points.
Biometric scanning, together with anti-passback systems and man traps, contribute to access control that is incredibly rigorous yet fast and friendly
Access to the data centre is available 24/7 should you need it.
But if you wish, Prescient can unburden you from the task of managing your servers and other hardware, and the distraction of addressing network issues or unexpected events.
Delivered together with select partners, our managed-service packages take colocation to the next level.
