Aspire’s data centre network is the backbone of our cloud-based services.

Our services are delivered via our privately-operated ISP network. We operate 6 enterprise-class Data Centres across the UK, connected by our 1Tbps resilient Core Network.

Located in Gateshead, Newcastle, Sunderland, Leeds, Manchester & London, our data centre locations are all Tier 3 classified and accredited to ISO 27001 Information Security Standards. All are resiliently connected, ensuring we can maintain 99.99% uptime.

We use DWDM wavelengths for all of our core backbone links to ensure stability and total manageability. We do not use MPLS or Ethernet solutions from other carriers for such links.

All Aspire data centres have resilient power, fire detection, FM200 fire suppression and security. We offer co-location, giving you access to industry leading sites and the ability to locate your network equipment closer to multiple suppliers.

Monitored 24 hours a day, 7 days a week by our dedicated Core Infrastructure team, our Core network handles over 5 million minutes of voice traffic and over 3 petabytes of internet traffic every month!
