About us

4D Data Centres helps companies manage and improve their IT infrastructure. Through our government-approved data centres and our extensive core network, we help our clients navigate the transition from in-house servers to off-site colocation or the cloud. Our services include public and private cloud hosting, ultra-fast connectivity and colocation for companies of any size.

With DDoS protection built into our core network, should your services come under attack, we can help you with a single phone call. And our managed firewalls can add an extra layer of protection should you need it.

Above all, our investment in our infrastructure and employees means you can consistently rely on us to keep you online and your data secure. Here are a few case studies that show how we’ve helped our clients over the years.
