Pulsant is set to invest £3 million into expanding its Rotherham data centre capacity by 116% to 380 kW.
The Rotherham site will see total IT space increase by 30% to support growing demand in the Yorkshire and Humber region, with 204 kW of extra data hall capacity.
The Rotherham site will also pilot non-palm derived HVO biofuel to replace fossil diesel in its standby power generators, and will utlise FM200 fire suppressant gas and move to LED sensor lighting in a move to meet sustainability goals.
Ben Cranham, Chief Operating Officer at Pulsant, said, “Our focus on delivering regional access to edge infrastructure is seeing us invest significantly to meet the growing demand for access to low latency, high performance, compute, storage and connectivity services across the Yorkshire and Humber region.
“Our platformEDGE infrastructure, in Rotherham and across the UK, is supporting the increasing number of business decision makers challenging cloud only strategies on cost and vendor lock-in grounds and their IT counterparts who see the limitations in the hyperscale model.”
