Collocation data centre provider LDeX group has recently doubled its capacity at its LDeX2 data centre campus in Trafford Park following the continued growth and uptick in customer demand.
The new 20,000 sq. ft. site, which is next door to LDeX’s current data centre, will host network carriers and global Internet Exchange Points, with all customers benefiting from support by expert technicians all year.
LDeX2 has said that its ‘state-of-the-art’ facility will also offer best in class carrier neutral collocation, along with network connectivity and streaming media satellite services to a large array of clients in the UK, Europe and the USA.
CEO of LDeX Group Rob Garbutt said; “Doubling capacity within a year is a great achievement and I’m proud to say we’ve hit this goal significantly quicker than we anticipated”
On the continued investment in Manchester, Garbutt said: “We know all about Manchester’s rich history in innovation and the substantial talent pool. We were confident we’d find success here – just like we did with UK Grid – and we’ve been working incredibly hard since we opened our first Manchester data centre just over a year ago.”
“As a company that also operates in London, we are incredibly optimistic about the potential of the northern economies. We fully support the Northern Powerhouse initiative, but it’s time to stop the rhetoric and focus instead on action. We hope our investment here acts as a ringing endorsement for the region’s technology credentials. “
