LONDON, October 7, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- BIS Ltd, a leading owner and operator of secure and expertly managed London data centres and outsourced managed IT services, is pleased to announce that their continued successful provision of Ethernet services has earned them a Colt UK Partner of the Year award.

Rob Jupp, Director of Colt's Midsize Business Division in the UK, said, We are delighted that BIS and their customers recognise the benefits of our award-winning Ethernet services for their wide area network. These low latency connectivity solutions are easy to manage, scalable and flexible and offer high speed access to business critical applications when and where customers need them.

He continued, BIS has successfully designed and implemented a number of solutions encompassing replicated cloud storage to enable business continuity.

David Pyemont, Chairman of BIS Ltd said, We are extremely proud to have been recognised again by Colt. This is testament to all the hard work our staff have put into delivering complex networking and managed services projects.
