Colocation Services

Colocation is a great way to outsource part or all of your IT infrastructure by leasing space, equipment and services in a data center. A little like a block of flats or a condominium, with both private and shared areas or resources. At nLighten, we offer you a colocation area comprising all you need for your connectivity – whether you’re a tiny start-up or a global enterprise.

We’ve fitted our cabinets with 100 % rated A and B power feeds, so everything keeps running even if there’s a power or plant outage. We also ensure resilient infrastructure that meets ASHRAE A1 standards for people working in the relevant rooms. All whitespace areas are CCTV monitored and provide power metering at cabinet level. There’s a DCIM online portal service for the real-time monitoring of your energy consumption and environmental conditions from the comfort of your own office (or anywhere else) – and a 24/7 help line for when you need assistance from a real person.

At nLighten, we’ll be happy to provide you with securely accessed colocation space. Our pre-defined modular aisle and services containment system ensures fast deployment for your hardware and is scalable, to grow alongside your business.
With a private cabinet in an nLighten colocation space, you have the freedom and flexibility to configure your infrastructure the way you want it.

At nLighten, our standard and secure 19-inch cabinets are 48 U high, 600 mm (24 inches) wide and 1200 mm (48 inches) deep. Each lockable cabinet has a nominal power density of 4 kW and a maximum power density of 15 kW, extensible with direct liquid cooling to 50 kW.

Our data centers offer both raised floor and concrete floor rackable areas. Planning a large, high-density deployment? Our concrete floor areas are ideal for your needs, allowing air-cooled power density of 20 kW per cabinet and hyperscaler standard distribution systems.
Looking for extra protection for your high-security applications? nLighten has the solution. We can add optional electric roller shutters to our standard cabinets. They comply with standards for external security applications. You benefit from physical security that’s equivalent to a private cage but with reduced footprint and cost. Plus: you can scale up much more easily as your business grows. If you’re already an nLighten customer, we can even retrofit your existing cabinets with these shutters as a bookable option.
nLighten offers configurable, high-security cages to fit your specific requirements if you have sensitive applications that need extra protection. A private cage provides you with the equivalent of your own secure data center – but one that brings extra benefits. These include a local data ecosystem with best-in-class connectivity and energy infrastructure, without the capex investment.

Our modular plug and play infrastructure assemblies are completely standard and provide rapid expansion at linear cost.

Cooling and humidity

Our resilient cooling and humidity infrastructure maintains temperature and humidity levels that comply with the class A1 allowable ASHRAE (American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers) technical committee 9.9 guidelines 2021.

For high-performance computing (HPC) applications, we additionally provide for direct-to-chip cooling systems.
