    Abstract

    DHI are reviewing potential datacentres for colocation services in phase 2 of DHI operations. The DataVita Fortis datacentre has been visited by DHI staff and its proximity to DHI makes it an ideal datacentre for the DHI to use. DataVita Fortis, located in the greater Glasgow area (ML6 8NW), is a colocation data centre that is carrier neutral. Carrier neutral (or network neutral) datacentres are datacentres that allow interconnection between multiple telecommunication carriers and/or colocation providers. A benefit of carrier-neutral datacentres is that they allow users the ability to switch providers without physically moving their server’s location.
