OUR SECOND MANCHESTER DATA CENTRE
Situated in Trafford Park, 2km from central Manchester, Our secure Manchester Datacentre complex offers 2 standalone buildings. LDeX3 is a 10,000 sq ft facility which will house up to 300 racks with a design density of 3Kw per rack.
LDeX3 is ready to be fitted out and has power provision and planning secured. It offers a perfect opportunity for a single large enterprise to secure a dedicated facility on a services contract, or alternatively a small number of customers each wishing to house a substantial deployment of equipment.
Dependant on customer needs we can look to incorporate your design requirements into the infrastructure build.
LDeX3 will benefit from having two diverse ducts linking into LDeX2 allowing your organisation to benefit from the diverse carriers already present in LDeX2 and reducing the time and complexity needed to provision carrier services, and allowing a greater choice of carrier options versus securing your own off net building.

We adhere to the best practices in Data Centre energy management
Data Centre Power
Our onsite private substation receives 1.5MW of electrical power from two independent primary upstream substations for maximum mains resilience. Every rack within the data centre is provided with truly diverse A+B feeds as standard. With N+N UPS protection, your rack power is reserved on 2 x diverse UPS banks for complete fail over capabilities – far more resilient than N+1 alternatives. N+1 Diesel generator power is always on standby with fuel on site and 24/7 replenishment contracts in place.
Data Centre Security
The colocation Manchester site is surrounded by 2.5m security fencing and comprehensive CCTV systems which report images to on-site security & a specialist third party monitoring centre for an additional layer of protection. Virtual tripwires, armed at certain times of the day, protect the boundaries and provide immediate intruder threat alerts to our security guards and send automatically generated images direct to the local police where a threat is identified. Facial recognition biometric systems and volumetric man-trap portals work with our secure access procedures to control secure access to all areas of the data centre.
Data Centre Connectivity
LDeX3 is carrier neutral and provides direct access to a range of leading network providers and carriers. All clients are free to select the network of their choice from those available on-site, whilst direct and low latency dark fibre availability, high capacity optical wave lengths and layer2 access to other data centre locations provide inter-connections to networks and equipment located elsewhere.
Data Centre Cooling
The LDeX3 data centre will utilise the very best in cooling and direct heat channelling technology to deliver and manage cold air flow with maximum efficiency. All areas of the data centre benefit from N+1 cooling resilience and we can cool up to 10kW per rack. Bespoke cold aisle containment with the use of blanking plates and return air plenum ensures best practices are adhered to.
Data Centre Support & Services
24×7 highly qualified LDeX technicians are on-hand to support your equipment on site and are trained to work as an extension to your own support team. Services provided include simple reboots and cable requests through to CCIE level network investigation services.
Data Centre PPM
LDeX Group carries out an ongoing stringent Planned Preventative Maintence (PPM) programme to ensure all Data Centre M&E infrastructure is finely tuned and running to it’s maximum effeciencies and reliability.
