Crosspoint’s dedicated quarter racks offer a secure, high-quality and cost-effective point-of-presence in key London data centres.

Quarter-rack colocation with Crosspoint

Our quarter racks are perfect for ISPs, managed service providers, hosting providers and other wholesale operators. They offer a secure yet high-quality point of presence on a cost-effective basis in a key London data centre ecosystem.

Smaller-scale enterprise and cloud providers also find our quarter racks the ideal entry point to the world-class data centres in the Crosspoint portfolio. In fact, many enterprise customers often take two locations from us. These are directly linked by our competitively priced London-data centre network.

Our quarter-rack cabinets usually offer 11U of space in a cabinet 1200mm deep. They feature dual power supplies as standard. Each customer has their own dedicated pair of power bars, which are fully independent of those of other users in the cabinet. Peace of mind and security of supply is therefore assured. Cross-connects are also securely delivered to customers’ units via dedicated internal trunking.

Crosspoint has been selling dedicated quarter racks since 2004 and our distinctive light-blue cabinets are becoming an increasingly familiar sight in our 12 London data centres. Our unique cabinet design is the result of 12 years’ operational experience. It ensures we can deliver an extremely secure, high-quality colocation solution (even on a part-rack basis) to the most demanding of users.
