Equinix Customer Success Story - Selection Services


Selection Services, a UK-based supplier of IT managed services, was growing fast and needed to add a presence in another data centre in addition to two existing sites in central London. It required new capacity to support its expanding cloud proposition and it needed to meet demands from some of its 700+ customers for a co-location point at least 30km from its existing London presence for high availability in the event of a disaster – thus ensuring the company could fulfil compliance requirements.



The Challenge

Selection Services, a UK-based supplier of IT managed services, was growing fast and needed to add a presence in another data centre in addition to two existing sites in central London. It required new capacity to support its expanding cloud proposition and it needed to meet demands from some of its 700+ customers for a co-location point at least 30km from its existing London presence for high availability in the event of a disaster – thus ensuring the company could fulfil compliance requirements.

The Solution

To start the process of finding a data centre provider, Selection talked to Geo Networks, a provider of dedicated fibre infrastructure. Selection had already chosen Geo to provide connectivity between its co-location sites. Of the possible locations from multiple vendors recommended by Geo, Selection chose the Equinix LD5 Internet Business Exchange (IBX) in Slough, to the west of London. LD5 enables Selection to provide reliable, high performance cloud and hosting services for customers who want a presence outside central London. Geo provides a cost effective, fast private fibre link that connects Selection’s points of presence in LD5 and its two existing London locations.
