Infrastructure you can rely on in our Manchester data centre
Our Manchester data centre is located on a purpose-built technology park, just south of the city centre. It offers 300m² (3,229 ft²) of high quality, resilient and secure space. Customers using our Manchester data centre enjoy high speed secure connections to a wide range of Tier 1 national and international carriers as well as the city’s own dedicated fibre-optic network, The Loop.
The Manchester data centre also benefits from the city’s own dedicated fibre-optic network loop, which stretches more than 170km and provides connectivity to top businesses. Our Manchester data centre is covered by our 100% uptime guarantee and is carrier neutral, to allow fluid interconnection between multiple national colocation providers.
Unlike other managed hosting companies, we own and operate our own multi-site network, allowing us to deliver flexible and diverse cloud solutions without any middlemen.
