Pulsant has made a further £4.5 million investment in its Manchester data centre.
According to Pulsant, the new investment will expand the company’s platformEDGE in the North West, delivering 300kW of additional IT capacity alongside upgrades to connectivity and cooling.
The plans will expand Data Hall 4 by 320 msq, and are set to be completed in December 2023.
Situated close to Manchester city centre, Pulsant has said the data centre will support business growth across the North West.
Ben Cranham, COO at Pulsant, said,“For regional businesses to thrive, they need access to a high bandwidth, low latency interconnection network. This investment in Manchester extends our commitment to support the growing technology demand for regional data centre access and colocation services across the North West.
“It supports Greater Manchester Council forward-thinking digital strategy and evolving regional ecosystem, enabling Manchester to become one of the leading digital economies in the next five years.”
As part of Pulsant’s target to be net zero by 2050, the company will be trialling non-palm oil derived HVO biofuel to replace fossil diesel in its standby power generators in its Manchester facility, as well as committing to eliminate the use of FM200 fire suppressant gas by 2030.
