Colocation with Prescient:
The flexible solution for fast-changing times
Recent years have been full of challenges and changes for businesses, organisations and individuals alike. As a forward-thinking data centre operator, we are especially well placed to help customers swiftly adapt and get ahead.
For example, 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, connecting both UK and international providers of IT services and cloud solutions.
Post Brexit, businesses seeking a data centre presence in the UK that is close to the EU need look no further than Prescient. We’re just 30 miles from the border and provide world-class facilities that are in step with – or ahead of – the best data centres on the UK mainland.
We are therefore the ideal location for organisations looking to establish a UK and EU presence near to one another. And as a Tier-3 facility, you can be sure of the best levels of resilience and reliability.
Add to this our flexible terms and competitive communications carrier options, and you’ll see why our local, international and global customers all tell us that Prescient is not only a compelling choice, but an extremely cost-effective one.

Prescient’s Northern Ireland data centre:
The local solution with world-class standards
We are located in the Atlantic Link Enterprise Campus, adjacent to the University of Ulster in Coleraine.
Visiting is easy as we are little over an hour’s drive from Belfast City Airport and just 35 mins from City of Derry Airport.
We are also a mere 30 miles from the EU border near Letterkenny in Ireland. Using Prescient together with a data centre there provides the possibility of an extremely close EU-UK presence.
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.
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.
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.
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.
