34SP.com Taps UK Grid for Data Centre

Manchester, United Kingdom – Customer focused website hosting company 34SP.com has announced the launch of its third data center buildout in partnership with UK Grid, a customer focused provider of quality data centre space and network services based in Manchester, United Kingdom. The data centre is the third provisioned by 34SP.com with existing data centre space in London and Manchester. According to the company, the previous data centre buildouts were approaching capacity, and 34SP.com desired to find a massively scalable, world class data centre with close proximity to Manchester City.

The new data centre space is a tier2 premium data centre in Manchester. The site location is Manchester Science Park, Synergy House and is UK Grid’s latest addition to its ‘carrier neutral’ data centres. The facility includes redundant power and cooling and is serviced by a fully diverse fibre ring providing extremely high availability, as well as full physical and virtual security. The data centre also has its own independent HV supply and power substation enabling the facility to sustain the newest high powered racks required by the next generation of powerful servers. The carrier neutral facility is connected via a dark fibre ring to multiple tier1 and tier2 bandwidth providers. Completely separate and independent multi homed fibre entry points into the building provide the maximum redundancy and uptime available.

Daniel Foster, co-founder of 34SP.com and the company’s Technical Director described the reasons for building out the new data centre, ”We’ve been growing ever since we started, and part of growing as a web host means adding server hardware. To date, we’ve been using our main London datacentre to add this capacity, but wanted to add another site close to our headquarters in Manchester. This not only allows for easier access to hardware for development purposes, but will allow us to offer further redundancy to our customers.

After reviewing datacentre providers in Manchester we visited a few and UK Grid stood out from the crowd. They offer exactly the type of datacentre we were looking for, with great power and connectivity options. We’re already providing customer services from Synergy House and look forward to expanding our presence there in the coming months and years.”

Patrick Doyle, Technical Lead at UK Grid commented on the addition of 34SP.com to the data centre, ”We are very pleased that 34SP.com has chosen UK Grid as their partner to expand their hosting business. 34SP.com have a very good reputation in the industry and UK Grid has been able to meet their demand and expectations with both colocation and connectivity to their existing site in London. We are very keen to work with locally based ISP’s and hosting companies in the North West and 34SP.com is another valued addition to our growing list.”
