Internet Facilitators Limited, a provider of data center services, today announced the opening of an additional 13,000 sq.ft. of data center space in Manchester, UK.
This project positions IFL as the largest provider of quality carrier neutral data centre space in Manchester. The ┬ú7million deal with Manchester Technopark secures IFL's third facility, which is located in Reynolds House, Manchester Technopark, increases fourfold the space presently available. Reynolds House was purpose built as a data centre and IFL will be investing a further ┬ú1M in the property. Scheduled for opening on 1st October 2006, the additional space will meet the needs of companies embarking on deployments of next generation technology, claims the company.
Commenting on this exciting development, Dr Peter Mills, Managing Director of IFL said, "Availability of high quality data centre space in Manchester has limited the region's internet community and forced many companies to locate equipment in London and further afield. IFL's expansion will ensure that high quality services are available locally and will avoid this migration southwards for many companies. In addition to providing regional colocation services, this is also good news for those with a presence elsewhere, looking for a secondary UK location away from the industry's over reliance on London data centres."
