Proximity Edge 9 comprises a 90,000 sqft facility built to Tier-III standards, offering 4MW of capacity with potential to expand to 20MW.
Proximity Edge 9 is the latest in Proximity’s expanding network of regional edge data centres which currently covers the North, North West, Midlands, Thames Valley, South West and South Wales. According to the company, within the next 12 to 18 months, a total of 20 sites will be available nationwide.
Proximity’s data centre grid electricity is sourced from 100% renewable providers, and its sites are ISO 9001 Quality-, 14001 Environmental- and 27001 Security-compliant.
