Why Newcastle

There are many reasons to choose Newcastle as your location of choice. Why continue to locate in congested London with increasing power costs and repeated issues with infrastructure when:

  • Stellium provides 80 MWs (designed to scale to 180 MWs) of REGO certified renewable power at Stellium Newcastle
  • Stellium provides metered power contracts – in London the infrastructure to give metered contracts is not always available. Energy is now 70% of your colocation cost so this is a major issue for your business in terms of transparency.
  • Stellium provides mobilisation time for contracts up to 1.3MW in 4 weeks
  • Stellium has no latency congestion. In fact we provide some of the lowest latency now available in the UK. As the landing station for the latest international subsea fibre cables, Newcastle is now closer to New York than London is.
  • Stellium has no cooling issues – unlike London data centres who experienced major cooling issues in 2022, Stellium had none.

Decisions about your mission-critical IT is a complex process, so our customers tend to have a lot of queries before discussing their requirements with us directly. We have addressed some of these in the FAQs section here.
