Managed Hosting – VPS, Dedicated & Shared Hosting


Opting for Private Cloud, and managed colocation or data storage no longer precludes you from benefiting from the flexibility, scalability and cost efficiency that virtualisation and shared environments bring. Working with GNT Data Centre means you can realise the flexibility, scalability and cost efficiency of Public Cloud with the inherent security, high availability and compliant environment that dedicated infrastructure assures. We also provide fully dedicated solutions for those that do not want to employ Cloud Infrastructure.


GNT Data Centre has the skills and experience to identify and build the most appropriate technology stack (compute, network, storage) on which to run your workloads.


Each server runs a single workload, and where all servers, network, switching, storage and firewalls are managed and operated solely for the customer organisation.


By employing hypervisors, one server hosts multiple virtual machines (VMs) to run multiple workloads and perform many roles.


In multi-tenanted environments, consumers can share firewalls, storage and processing. For infrastructure as a service (IaaS), different VMs may share hardware via a hypervisor; for platform as a service (PaaS), different processes may share an operating system and supporting data and networking services; for software as a service (SaaS), different consumers may share the same application or database.


GNT Data Centre's Object Storage is a cost-effective and highly secure alternative to Public Cloud storage that guarantees data sovereignty and overcomes the challenges of conventional block-based storage. We also support a wide range of versions of servers, applications, hypervisors and databases, including: NAS, SAN, Windows, Linux, MAC, Oracle, Exchange, VMware, and Hyper-V.


Delivered as a service with an exceptionally high standard of digital, physical and human security, GNT Data Centre’s Managed Hosting solutions and Cloud Infrastructure and services eliminate the pain associated with Cyber Security and meeting onerous compliance mandates. What’s more, you never need to over specify computing power and capacity up front – you only pay for what you need, when you need it:

  • Our Cloud platform is based on an infinitely scalable IBM infrastructure with automatic protection against hardware failure
  • The orchestration and management software is Egenera, employed by Fortune 500 companies
  • Our fully automated infrastructure can be scaled on demand and allows customers to deploy both Virtual and Physical server sets from a common platform
  • Utility consumption, with the flexibility to allocate resource as you see fit and be charged accordingly
  • We’re ISO 27001 accredited, PCI DSS certified and fully compliant with all 12 PCI DSS v3.0 requirements


Contrary to perceptions, organisations can improve their risk position by taking the right type of Cloud services in the right proportion from the right type of service provider. Working with GNT Data Centre gives you access to a suite of comprehensive and advanced Information Security services such as Security Incident and Event Management (SIEM). SIEM is costly and complex to manage in-house, but with our Cloud Infrastructure, you receive a fully managed service supported by 24x7x365 monitoring via our Security Operations Centre (SOC).


GNT Data Centre’s SIEM provides a full audit trail of everything technical teams do when accessing an environment. All log data is transferred securely to an independent and accredited SOC, where they are monitored continually in real time. Log data is kept totally secure – even GNT Data Centre cannot access it – and is available for forensics should an incident occur.

Hybrid and Community Cloud

Outsourcing to GNT Data Centre means you can be part of a community of likeminded businesses that like you understand the value of security. You can scale up and down quickly and seamlessly, and build dedicated and virtual environments within a single, high availability infrastructure that is secure by design.


PaaS is not a one size fits all solution. That’s why our specialists work closely with your development team to create an environment that’s available instantly when you need it and works the way you want it to.

Hardware as a Service (HaaS)

Hardware as a Service (HaaS) builds on the benefits of Colocation. Colocation customers are able to offload responsibility for supply, installation and maintenance of server hardware, storage and network devices to TGNT Data Centre for a fixed and predictable monthly cost.

Infrastructure as a Service (IAAS)


TGNT Data Centre’s IaaS combines infinitely scalable IBM infrastructure and Egenera orchestration and management software with industry-leading virtual hardware delivered from our highly secure UK-based data centres. You can deploy both virtual and physical server sets from a common platform and benefit from sophisticated ITIL-based monitoring and management with our on-site customer service desk, available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year.

With our protected Windows, Unix and Linux environments, up to four additional levels of security and full encryption available, our IaaS is inherently secure. It ensures the confidentiality, integrity, and availability (CIA) of your mission critical data throughout its journey in the cloud – from desktop to data centre to device.

In common with our Platform as a Service (PaaS) solution, IaaS can be used to create cost-effective and highly scalable IT solutions where the complexities of managing the underlying hardware are handled by us. If the scale and demand of your operations fluctuate or expand, IaaS allows you to harness cloud resource as and when required rather than purchase, install and integrate hardware yourself, thereby saving time and money.


Our Hybrid Cloud model is a combination of two or more clouds (private or public) that remain unique entities, but are bound together by technology that enables data and application portability across both clouds depending on security and control requirements.

With Hybrid Cloud, you can migrate critical applications, data and processes to a private cloud (whether dedicated, dedicated virtualised or multi-tenanted) for maximum security and integrity, and migrate test and development or web-facing services to a public cloud in order to benefit from complete flexibility, scalability and the utility billing model.


Historically provisioned on dedicated physical systems and storage, private cloud computing delivers similar advantages to public cloud computing, including scalability and self-service, but through a proprietary architecture. While public clouds deliver services to multiple organisations, a private cloud is dedicated to a single organisation and is managed and operated either on premises by internal or third-party teams, or externally by a Managed Services Provider (MSP) as an outsourced service.

Choosing GNT Data Centre as your private cloud service provider means you can benefit from the highest levels of data security and availability in the UK. We combine the best in physical, human and digital security, and offer a wide range of options for access control, encryption and segregation to ensure the confidentiality, integrity and availability of your cloud-based applications and data.


The PCI DSS standards v3.1 introduced in June 2015 means information security is more than a tick-box exercise in compliance. With the threat of fines of up to £100 per card affected by a breach, it pays to partner with an expert who sees PCI compliance as a way of achieving operational best practice for security.

Network – BGP Routing & Peering

We operate our own redundant, fully meshed, self-healing 10 Gigabit network from our secure data centres to the Internet. All of these services are monitored and managed 24x7x365 via our expert team at GNT Data Centre’s Network Operations Centre..


We use Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) routing to take advantage of multi-homing and the intelligent re-routing of traffic to divert around problematic areas and ensure reliable connectivity.


We have multiple peering arrangements in place, improving performance, redundancy, capacity and cost by directly swapping traffic between ISPs. This eliminates the need to go through transit providers.


We operate on a Carrier Neutral basis. This means you are not tied to any single provider for your connectivity. With a growing number of on-site Tier 1 providers, we’ve also secured dual redundant links to Points of Presence (PoPs) in Telehouse and Level 3, enabling you to purchase super-fast connectivity direct at preferential rates from more than 150 ISPs.


GNT Data Centre’s team of Open Source specialists has decades of experience and a demonstrable track record of success in managing, monitoring and building Open Source platforms. We provide the IT infrastructure platform, up to the operating system, application server, and inclusive of the application and end user support – whatever you require to achieve your application development and business goals.
