Keysource has designed the state-of-the-art CXNDC 200 rack Data Centre to a tier-III standard covering nearly 10,000 sq ft, and bringing more than 40,000 Mbps of internet connectivity. The project will support demand from local and national clients and will also become the business’ new headquarters. Work is due to begin on the site in July.
Richard Clifford, Head of Innovation at Keysource, said: “The growing demand for smart cities infrastructure in the UK represents a significant opportunity for Keysource. We have a long track record of delivering for colocation and internet service providers like Connexin and understand the particular needs of this growing area of the data centre market. CXNDC will provide Connexin with a state of the art data asset and we’re proud to be supporting both it and Hull’s smart city ambitions.”
Furqan Alamgir, CEO at Connexin, said: “With CXNDC we are making a major investment in Hull as it progresses its journey to become a leading UK smart city. Keysource’s consultative approach has been key to ensuring this new asset is designed and optimised with the long-term operation of the site in mind.”
