Local support for local businesses
Based in Sittingbourne, Sota has been providing IT services in Kent for almost 35 years. From our early days providing business accounting software, Sota has always pushed the boundaries. We opened our first commercial-grade data centre in 2004, and became an independent network operator in 2009, building our own regional fibre-optic network.
Our data centres in the secure Kent Science Park campus now provide IT managed services to more than 500 businesses and 10,000 users in Kent and across the country. With modern and cost-effective solutions, we’ve helped some of Kent’s most recognisable brands level up their IT, from Shepherd Neame to the Kent and East Sussex Railway.
During the COVID-19 lockdown, RSBC migrated to SotaCloud, and we had no issues. Sota's engineers are friendly and helpful, and this reinforces my confidence in our partnership. Congratulations to a great team.
Charity, Not for Profit
Our relationship is founded on trust, and a shared commitment to IT excellence. We have gone from a start-up business to a global entity, and as our needs have changed, Sota has adapted with us.
Sota’s strategic direction and support has resulted in an intelligent business continuity strategy, and their dedicated team always take a hands-on approach to every individual project, offering fantastic support from start to finish.
RBLI has benefitted from Sota’s services, which have significantly increased speed, and improved productivity for our 260 staff users. The success of the initial connectivity project lead to the implementation of a full business continuity solution.
