Databarracks recently opened its doors to Alex Taylor, a PhD student of anthropology from the University of Cambridge who is conducting research on the data centre industry. In this guest post, Alex explains the reasons ...
Databarracks is obsessed with security.
We’ve made a point of it. We know that relying on a third party to deliver your business critical systems is fundamentally an act of trust. From the ex-military bunker we use to host systems down to our tireless support team, we’ve built our whole business around an appreciation of the gravity of that choice.
We started 13 years ago with backup, when cloud computing was a still just an idea. We knew then that hosted IT services would change the face of business computing, so long as they were reliable – so long as they did what they said they would.
Ensuring we do just that – deliver on our promises – comes down to our other obsession: support. The Databarracks culture is defined by hiring talented people who genuinely care about what we do.
Award winning service.
Awards are important to us because it means we're achieving what we set out to do: deliver the best cloud services in the UK.
Perhaps more important than the awards though are the success stories behind them. We won every single one of those awards because a satisfied customer either nominated us or endorsed us.
Databarracks continually prioritises customer service over all else, so it means a lot when people vouch for us.
