Pulsant, a leading UK data centre and Edge infrastructure provider, has announced £4.5m further investment in its Manchester data centre, supporting the delivery of Edge Computing and high-bandwidth, low-latency connectivity for local businesses.
Due for completion in December 2023, the expansion of Pulsant’s Data Hall 4 will make Edge Computing capabilities more accessible and powerful for businesses in the North-West through Pulsant’s platformEDGE, its next-generation Edge Compute platform. Local businesses will be able to access LINX peering services and 10 global clouds – all from the heart of Manchester.
