About Us

Capitoline is a specialist data centre consultancy. We don’t sell products. We offer independent advice and consultancy to help you plan new data centres, improve existing ones, manage them properly and educate yourself and your staff in best practice data centre design, auditing and operations management.

So many companies offering data centre advice have something to sell. I wanted someone who was truly independent

Capitoline’s consultants are chartered engineers with over 30 years’ experience in engineering, IT infrastructures and business management. This in itself is enough experience from which to offer sound advice but in addition to this you can benefit from our experience of auditing 100s of data centres and computer rooms around the world.

Capitoline was founded in 2005 and since that time we have been providing services to companies in almost every industry in many countries around the world.

We know that when you have a question you want an answer and so your enquiry will be answered by Matt or Barry who are the founding Directors of Capitoline. Both of them have over 30 years experience in IT and Engineering infrastructures. They founded Capitoline in 2005 and have been focussed on helping clients improve their data centre facilities and operations management ever since.
