Proximity Data Centres, a regional Edge colocation data centre provider, announced the immediate availability of three more high quality facilities. The new sites in Liverpool, Chester and Coventry add a further 8 megawatts (MW) of IT load capacity and more than 80,000 square feet of net technical space to the company’s growing UK network of strategically located Internet Edge data centres. 

These latest acquisitions join the company’s Wakefield, Nottingham and Bridgend locations, adding a further 21 employees, who are predominantly in engineering and operational roles.  

The announcement is in line with the company’s growth strategy which will expand Proximity’s UK network of regional Edge data centres to 20 sites within the next 12 to 18 months. This will enable the company to offer UK-wide coverage with all its Edge data centres, selected for their proximity to major conurbation areas.   

“In these uncertain times, we are especially pleased to have successfully completed our latest Edge data centre acquisitions,” said John Hall, Managing Director, Proximity Data Centres. “With the on-going support of our funding partner, ICG Real Estate, we are locating high quality, high capacity, scalable and extremely resilient regional Internet Edge data centres within easy reach of enterprise businesses, cloud and content providers. Ensuring low latency connectivity will help them achieve maximum operational efficiency and deliver excellent customer service – essential for businesses in today’s hyperconnected Digital Economy.”
