Embodying all the characteristics of their desirable namesake, Krystal are the largest independent web host in the UK, and they like to do things a little differently.
Chances are that if you know anything about the web hosting industry, you will know of Krystal. They’ve sat at the sharp end of this sector for a long time, carving a name for themselves as an organisation that really cares; it’s their now famous creed that really sets them apart.
Also sitting front and centre to the Krystal formula is an unmatched passion for technology and forward-thinking innovation, with consistent, heavy investment in their infrastructure, now relied on by nearly 35,000 customers worldwide.
How do you become such a large, respected player in this competitive space? Aside to expert in-house capabilities, it’s also important to align with an infrastructure partner that can assist with scalable, highly resilient colocation and connectivity services as development, expansion and growth continue full force.
Our now long-term relationship with Krystal began back in 2015, during their acquisition of a hosting company we’d been working with for several years prior. A clear alignment of values became apparent during early conversations, and we’ve since assisted with their explosive growth to over twenty racks across three inter-connected facilities.
Krystal are absolute experts in their field, which makes our role as their infrastructure partner a simple one; we provide secure, well serviced rack space, access to highly resilient power and connectivity, and act as a resource they can rely on completely for remote hands. The rest they handle in-house.
With mission-critical systems spanning all corners of our metro network, Krystal enjoy access to diverse, high capacity Layer 1 services between all on-net locations, as well as outbound access through our robust blended transit service.
Ever pushing the boundaries of what’s possible in terms of performance, Krystal have two ground-breaking platforms that operate alongside their shared and dedicated hosting services.
Onyx, a high availability managed Wordpress platform, and Katapult, an ultra-high performance NVMe powered platform for virtual servers.
We’re proud to support Krystal as they continue to invest in custom, bleeding edge technologies, which rely on our rock-solid infrastructure around the clock.
Krystal are one of those rare breed organisations that manage to provide a world-leading service while also maintaining true integrity and transparency, something often found lacking as hosting providers grow and evolve.
It’s simply in their DNA, and it’s why we enjoy working with them so much, ensuring they have access to the sustainable infrastructure they need to thrive.
