Colocation data centre provider LDeX Group has doubled its capacity at its LDeX2 data centre campus in Trafford Park, following continued growth and an uptick in customer demand.
The new 20,000 sq. ft. site, next door to LDeX’s current data centre, will house network carriers and global Internet Exchange Points (IXPs), with customers benefitting from support by expert technicians 365 days a year. The state-of-the-art facility will also offer best-in-class carrier neutral colocation, network connectivity and streaming media satellite services to a large array of clients in the UK, Europe and the USA.
Rob Garbutt CEO of LDeX Group, said: “Doubling capacity within a year is a great achievement and I’m proud to say we’ve hit this goal significantly quicker than we anticipated. I put it down to our fantastic team offering outstanding customer service to our customers in many different time zones with often complex problems that we are able to resolve.”
“We have gone from strength to strength since we established in 2011 and this expansion underlines the fact that there is real demand for colocation and data centre services in the region. I’m looking forward to providing great service to even more organisations in the North West and beyond.”
LDeX Group owners Rob Garbutt and Patrick Doyle founded the company in London following the successful sale of their previous organisation, Manchester-based UK Grid Group, to Telecity Group plc in September 2011. Inspired by the region’s burgeoning technology scene and armed with a wealth of knowledge of the local data centre market, the pair opened LDeX’s first Manchester-based data centre in July last year.
Garbutt continued: “We know all about Manchester’s rich history in innovation and the substantial talent pool. We were confident we’d find success here – just like we did with UK Grid – and we’ve been working incredibly hard since we opened our first Manchester data centre just over a year ago.
“As a company that also operates in London, we are incredibly optimistic about the potential of the northern economies. We fully support the Northern Powerhouse initiative, but it’s time to stop the rhetoric and focus instead on action. We hope our investment here acts as a ringing endorsement for the region’s technology credentials.”
