Manchester based Internet Infrastructure company M247 began work today on their brand new datacentre in Trafford Park. This new building presents M247 with a white sheet of paper on which to design what is likely to be the most energy efficient datacentre in Europe.
Their existing datacentre, located right next door to their new building which was purchased last month, is almost completely at capacity so new customers signing up to the Connectivity, Co-location, Cloud, Dedicated Server, Internet Security and Web Hosting products offered by M247 will soon be able to enjoy the spacious surrounds of the new building which boasts a location with free and secure parking just a very short distance from Junction 9 on the M60 motorway and a stone’s throw away from the Trafford Centre.
M247 Operations Director Jonathan Buckle is part of a team managing the build of the new datacentre and he says “ the experience we gained a few years back when we opened our first datacentre will be invaluable to the success of this new building. We’re determined to have our new datafloors operational in the very near future and a number of our development team will be moving across within days to enjoy their new spacious office accommodation. Our team has grown significantly recently and this new space will help us all benefit in so many ways.”
Asked what other changes this new building will bring, Jonathan said “IceColo, the server co-location arm of M247 will now be offering a “carrier neutral” co-location product set from our new datacentre. In our industry ”carrier neutral” means that customers will have a lot more choice and flexibility when it comes to which telecoms providers they can use. We have also recently invested heavily in ensuring our growing international network operates as efficiently as possible and we can now provide a massive capacity that positions us with practically unlimited growth potential for many years into the future.”
Jonathan also points out that “with a PuE of under 1.2, the existing M247 datacentre is widely regarded as one of the most energy efficient datacentres in the whole of Europe and its planned to build on what’s been carefully developed there to take our new datacentre one step further towards lowering our carbon footprint. “
