Hosting and colocation specialist UKFast has won a top data centre industry award in the week that the firm is set to launch Manchester's most powerful data centre complex.
The Manchester-based business took home the award for the Special Assignment Team of the Year at the DatacenterDynamics EMEA Awards, in recognition of its migration from external facilities to the firm's first purpose-built, fully-owned and managed data centre.
Lawrence Jones, UKFast CEO said: "We took a big leap of faith investing in our own data centres, but it was something that we needed to do to ensure that we provide the best possible service and hosting environment. It was a huge task to migrate around ten thousand live solutions to MANoC 4, and I have never seen such dedication from a team in my life.
"The whole team pulled together, working weekends, late nights and extra hours to make sure we completed the move with minimal downtime for our clients.
"We are so proud to win this award, especially in the week that we launch our new data centre complex. It's a wonderful testament to the team and their amazing effort, commitment and achievement."
Held at the Lancaster London hotel, the DatacenterDynamics EMEA Awards recognise the very best innovation, leadership and different thinking in the data centre industry across Europe, the Middle East and Africa.
