Teledata has announced plans to open a fourth data hall at its Wythenshawe facility in Manchester, UK.
The expansion will see an additional 75 server racks become available, will cover 2,400 sq ft (223 sqm) of space and provide an additional 300kW of customer power. The new hall is scheduled to open in the spring of 2021.
“Data centers form an increasingly important part of the national fabric, enabling remote and flexible working with high capacity networking and compute solutions to ensure peace of mind,” said Matt Edgely, director for Teledata. “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 center services and hosting solutions is critical.”
“It is our aim to remain ahead of the curve, providing secure and powerful data centers for our client’s mission-critical data and online applications.”
Based in Wythenshawe, Manchester, in the northeast of England and opened in 2007, Teledata’s facility offers colocation, cloud, dedicated server hosting and workplace recovery services across 70,000 sq ft (6,500 sqm) of floor space.
The news is the second phase of a £2m ($2.7m) expansion project Teledata announced last year. Stage one saw the facility open doors to its third data hall in December 2020. The new expansion sees the company looking to increase its workforce by 20 percent.
