We live in a changing world.


For one thing, it's faster moving, with the amount of data being generated doubling every 18 months. Post 9/11, it's sadly also more dangerous, terrorism posing a constant threat. Plus, in the space of just a few years, IT has become essential to every business.

The Data Centres that support your IT are changing too. As power demands soar, and connectivity costs plummet, Data Centres are migrating away from costly, congested and vulnerable city centres.

Highly secure and resilient facility


NGD was created in 2007 to offer a Data Centre especially designed for this new world. Occupying a low-risk rural site, this highly secure and resilient facility is both cost-effective and future-proofed.

Want evidence of NGD's success? Well, its roster of world-class blue-chip clients speaks for itself.

When data is more valuable than gold, there is Nowhere Safer than NGD.

All the latest.
