Founded in 1994 by experts in security, Cryptography and Open Source, The Bunker was first incorporated in 2004. We acquired the freeholds to our Ash and Newbury facilities from the UK Ministry of Defence and US Air Force respectively. Purpose built to protect data and people in the event of a nuclear attack; these former command and control bunkers now protect data from every potential threat that could compromise the availability of a business’s critical applications and data.
In 2006 institutional investors Foresight Venture Partners supported The Bunker and joined the board, laying the foundations for the rapid growth we see today. The Bunker has continued to make substantial investments in our sites, with major upgrades in power, cooling and connectivity to support our state-of-the-art high security, high density data centre services.
We are a mature business with a prestigious base of long-standing clients, and a reputation for great service and sensible IT. Since our inception, we have enjoyed consistent growth year on year because clients entrust us with their most complex technical challenges and demanding business requirements. They rely on our broad technical expertise to support their own teams to evolve systems to meet changing business demands.
Working with The Bunker gives clients the confidence that their systems will be secure and available and when due diligence is performed, that their environment will be fully compliant. And for those who wish to reduce their storage costs but cannot use Public Cloud storage, The Bunker provides easy access to a Cloud Storage platform that delivers Petabyte scalability, security and guaranteed UK data sovereignty, at a price competitive with Public Cloud.
We’ve also evolved in line with changing business demands – with dedicated, dedicated virtualised, and virtualised multi-tenanted Cloud Infrastructure and Data Storage solutions and services founded on best practice in Information Security, compliance and good governance. These three pillars are business as usual for The Bunker, and will always be manifest in everything we do.
Crucially, we care about your business, and run your infrastructure the way we run our own. This is why we have a proven track record of substantially outperforming competitors in all areas of security, compliance and business continuity.
We have built the most secure data centres in the UK, located within purpose built, ex-Ministry of Defence facilities that are armoured, nuclear bombproof and military-specified fortresses. Our data centres have been upgraded with millions of pounds of investment in extra power, cooling, fire suppression and Carrier Neutral connectivity. They are IL3/4 rated, and provide a secure, flexible and compliant environment for core, production, backup, test and development, or disaster recovery infrastructure.
The Bunker cares about your business, treating your infrastructure like our own. With great customer service, responsive SLAs and incident response, we provide proactive consulting and a personalised approach. Customers come to us because they know they will be highly available and secure, and when due diligence is performed, that they will be compliant.
Our culture starts and ends with security. However, we believe that security and compliance should be enablers, not barriers to business growth and innovation. This is enshrined within three key tenets that underpin our culture:
