Today we’re celebrating 15 years as Teledata… and what a 15 years it’s been!
Founded in 2005, we opened our first data centre - known as TD1 - in 2007. Shortly afterwards, we became the only data centre in the world to have an NSI Gold Approved BS5979 Cat II Security Operations Centre on site, after building our on-site security ARC (Alarm Receiving Centre). This gave our security team direct links to police control rooms for ultimate, priority response.
In 2012, our second data centre (named TD2) opened, and in 2016 we acquired 1st Easy. 1st Easy had been operating within the hosting sector since 1999 and specialised in the provision of VMWare based public cloud solutions and data centre infrastructure services. This acquisition further expanded our capabilities to serve the increasing demand for highly secure, resilient and hybrid IT enabled environments.
In 2018, we launched our own active-active cloud hosting platform known as CloudActiv, followed by private cloud and private virtual desktop solutions. In 2019, we became the first colocation provider to install a smart energy battery storage system - a project which we worked on with the Business Growth Hub, and which saw us invest some £1.5 Million into energy efficiencies.
More recently, we’ve proudly opened our third data centre (TD3) just last month, with our fourth (TD4) scheduled to open in the spring of 2021. And 2020 finished with more excitement, as we won the award for Energy Efficiency Project of the Year at the prestigious DCS awards, gaining recognition for our smart energy battery storage project.
We want to take this opportunity to thank our team, without whom none of this would be possible. They show dedication, commitment and passion day in, day out and despite the challenges that 2020 has brought, remain at the top of their game, working together for the good of the company to drive the business forward, delivering the best possible service and solutions for our clients.
Thank you #TeamTeledata! And happy 15th birthday to us….
