What is VDC?

VDC serves as an extension of an organisation’s IT operations as it integrates seamlessly into existing infrastructure with fibre Connectivity over Exponential-e's carrier-class Network.

VDC designed for high-availability, reliability and Business Continuity.

The Exponential-e VDC service is hosted in three geographically diverse UK Data Centres. We can replicate customers’ services from one site to another over our carrier-class Network with dedicated Connectivity.

The VDC: putting Cloud estate configuration at your finger tips.
