iomart confirms plans for Tier 3 Manchester data centre

New facility will meet growing demand in city.

UK managed cloud services provider iomart has confirmed its plans for a Tier 3 data centre in Manchester in its half yearly statement to the City.

In the plc’s statement, CEO Angus MacSween said: “This investment, which we are aiming to ensure will bring with it official Tier 3 certification, will be a well-received capacity addition in the fast growing technology and communications sector around the Manchester area.”

The data centre that iomart plans to transform is a 10,000 sq ft facility which came as part of its acquisition of the Manchester company LDeX in December of last year. LDeX delivers carrier neutral, premium colocation space and low latency connectivity solutions.

In its half yearly results, iomart, which already has a substantial presence in Manchester, reported revenue 8% ahead of the previous period, having increased to £55.1m (H1 2019: £50.9m), driven by its Cloud Services operation which grew by 10%.

As well as its plans to increase its presence in Manchester, the cloud computing company continues to expand its global data centre footprint.iomart reported that it now has points of presence in over 25 locations around the world, with capability established in Paris, Frankfurt and Amsterdam in the last six months. These additions to the footprint, the company said, ensure that iomart can offer even more support to its customers with any EU requirements post Brexit.
