Data Centre Tour

The UKFast data centre complex represents a £22 million investment in enterprise-grade data centre facilities. We own, manage and maintain all 30,000 sq. ft. of our Manchester data centre facilities, enabling us to have total end-to-end control.

Our government accredited data centres are tier 3 in configuration in line with the Uptime Institute and TIA requirements, making them concurrently maintainable facilities, ensuring business continuity.

We have ISO data centres capable of housing AI machines and power hungry servers.

The Benefits of Colocation

High Availability

Colocation offers a range of benefits that organisations can't generally realise internally, such as improved bandwidth, lower latency and higher levels of security, as well as redundant power and cooling. Our data centres are highly resilient, ensuring maximum uptime, availability and service delivery.

Improved Performance

Effective air cooling and airflow systems ensure the best possible performance from your hardware. Combined with a wide range of connectivity options, your mission critical applications will be fast, highly available and consistent for a greater user experience right across your business.

Greater Scalability

Periods of business growth can often increase the demand on your bandwidth and resources, leaving you stretched. With colocation, space can rented based on your current requirements, but can be easily scaled up as needed if your requirements change.

Increased Security

We know that data security is crucial to your business. Our data centres are ISO certified with high levels of physical security around and throughout the facility. With a new security centre manned 24/7/365, access protocol and separate perimeter, internal 2.8m razor wire prison fencing and rising road barrier, we guarantee the only person accessing your hardware is you.
