Hot on the heels of growth of 58 per cent for its cloud hosting during 2020, cloud hosting and data centre operator Teledata will open a fourth data hall at its Wythenshawe facility during spring 2021.
The expansion, which will see an additional 75 server racks become available for the firm’s cloud hosting and colocation customer base, will cover 2,400 square feet of space, and deliver an additional 300kw of customer power to the data centre.
This new data centre marks stage two of a £2 million expansion project announced by the company last year. Stage one saw Teledata launch its third data hall in December 2020, which the firm reports is already full.
Director Matt Edgley commented that data centre capacity in Manchester is nearing a critical point:
“Data centres form an increasingly important part of the national fabric, enabling remote and flexible working with high-capacity networking and computer solutions to ensure peace of mind.
“We’re seeing a serious lack of new investment into high quality supply, particularly in our region, and this is leading to data centre space becoming harder to secure for businesses seeking to expand their hosting capacities and cloud networks.
“As businesses continue to run against the challenges of a global pandemic, with working from home more important now than ever, the requirement for resilient, secure and dependable data centre services and hosting solutions is critical. It is our aim to remain ahead of the curve, providing secure and powerful data centres for our client’s mission-critical data and online applications.”
