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

Exponential-e’s VDC is designed for customers to manage their virtual estates at the touch of a button. Configuration, real-time changes, capacity and pooling of resources can all be done on-demand via our secure Cloud portal.
