IFL expands Manchester data centre

Internet Facilitators Limited, a business class data centre provider, today announced that it has expanded its Manchester data centre network with an additional 5,000 sq ft of premium colocation space.

The company says that its expansion on the ground floor of Reynolds House, where the company already occupies over 17,000 sq ft, will be its second in the last twelve months.

It avers that with further large scale expansion news expected in the next few months, this will ensure ever increasing demand will continue to be met by IFL with quality supply through its continued investment in new data centres.

In order to bring the new expansion space into service, the comapny articulates that it will build a second on-site energy centre with a new 1MVA power supply, diesel generators and n+1 UPS system.

Also, state of the art air conditioning will be deployed to ensure the lowest possible Energy Efficiency Ratio - a measure of how much additional electricity is used beyond that needed for servers.

An additional 150 racks will be made available with an expected average power usage of 4.5KW per rack up to a maximum of 8KW per rack, adds the company.

The company further explains that its data centres offer connectivity solutions from a wide range of Tier 1 network providers including BT, Cogent, NTL, NWIX and THUS all of whom have multiple resilient routes into the building.

Also, their data centre network is connected to other data centres in the region through dedicated fibre networks such as MCIX & NWIX. London based carriers also provide low cost backhaul to data centres located in the nation's capital, claims the company.

It says that the increasing number of carriers and IP Transit providers continues to drive the cost of connectivity downwards and ensure IFL customers are located on the backbone of the region's internet.

Matthew Edgley, IFL Sales Manager comments, "Much of our continued success can be attributed to the growth of our existing partners and customer base. Recognition of this drives our commitment to provide a continuous supply of high quality rack space to facilitate their future growth."

"We are attracting record numbers of new customers as an increasing number of organisations realise the advantages of outsourcing their data centre whilst retaining their in-house technical staff and expertise. The company is in outstanding health with sales records being broken every quarter since 2006.

The very strength of the sales pipeline proves demand for quality colocation space and absolutely necessitates our continued multi-million pound investment in expansion," added Edgley.
