    DataCentres in Scotland?

    Does anyone know if there are any datacentres in Scotland and if so where are there and is there any info on them?
    Or does anyone offer dedicated servers in Scotland?

    http://belowzero.biz claim to be "Scotland's only Co-location specialist".

    Your probably better off couriering your box(es) to London Docklands though... (no disrespect to the Below Zero guys, of course).

    The UK is way expensive for hosting and just about anything else. :-)

    I am based in Scotland as well, Glasgow. But even though I have thought of co-lo in the past. The expense for a lot of BW is prohibitive. Plus all out users are in the US So even if we wanted to the revenue we generate in dollars is goes further in the USA than it would in UK. Especailly with the pound so strong.

    But I am sure Zero and others are good options if you really need to co-lo in Scotland.

    40GB for 219 Pounds. Wow. To think i was interested in getting a dedicated server there
    Never argue with an idiot. They will drag you down to their level, then beat you with experience.

    Scolocate is the only 'carrier neutral' datacentre in Scotland, and where most of the major carriers have their POPs.

    Off the top of my head the main hosting co's in Scolocate are Iomart, EQSN, Ednet, Abel and ourselves.

    Below0 are I believe in a PSInet POP in the centre of Edinburgh.
