Connected to Adapt’s UK data centre network via resilient links, enabling load balancing and synchronous replication across multiple production environments, Digital Woking is a high security data centre designed for high power and cooling density.

The DRT data centre in Woking is located on the M25 periphery. Coupled with Adapt’s Central London based estate, this makes the facility a perfect solution for split site hosting requirements.

Every suite comes with a dedicated plant ensuring that all equipment can be easily maintained without any intrusion or impact to services, enabling our customers to maximise the usage of their technical space.
