Teledata to open new data centre in South Manchester

A second data centre facility covering 25,000 ft2 will accommodate over 500 server racks for the firm’s cloud hosting and colocation customer base.

Manchester data centre operator, Teledata will be opening a new data centre facility in South Manchester later this year. 25,000 ft2 of floor space and 4MVA of power will accommodate over 500 new server racks in both high and standard density. The project should see the first data halls coming online in Q4 2022.

Since 2020, Teledata has opened three new data halls at its Manchester campus, taking the total number of halls up to five currently. The new facility will see the firm open up to 10 more data halls - depending on client needs - all of which will be carrier neutral, protected by BS5979 accredited security and built to enterprise standards using best-in-class efficient technology to deliver stringent uptime expectations.

Matt Edgley, director for Teledata commented; “As a data centre provider we have a responsibility to our clients to ensure that continuous capacity is available. There is currently a lack of data centre space in Manchester, with capacity in the region nearing critical point. Data centre space is becoming harder to secure for businesses seeking to expand their hosting capacities and cloud networks, so we’re working hard to grow our facility in line with regional demand. We hope to be able to expand fast enough to meet this demand so that we can support our clients’ growth through resilient, secure and dependable data centre services and hosting solutions.”
