Proximity launches Milton Keynes Data Centre
The UK’s fastest growing regional data centre provider, Proximity Data Centres has opened a new data centre in Milton Keynes. The company has announced the opening of its tenth UK facility in Buckinghamshire this week. The facility is built to Tier III standards and covers 48,000 sqft with multiple data halls. The data centre has 3MW of available power capacity. The 3.2 acres site offers low latency connectivity via multiple tier 1 carrier connections including dark fibres with fully diverse links.
Located in Milton Keynes, the site will service central England to provide a network of regional edge data centres to meet the digital needs of the population outside of London. The facility was previously owned by Nuco Technologies Ltd, which owns the hosting company Host-IT.
“Proximity Milton Keynes Edge 10 is ideally located for the many businesses in Central England looking for secure, scalable colocation services combined with high-speed low latency connectivity to meet the needs of increasingly demanding users and applications,” said John Hall, managing director for colocation at Proximity Data Centres.
“Edge 10 is an important milestone for Proximity as we are now well on the way to establishing a truly UK-wide edge data centre footprint capable of reaching 95% of the population. We plan to have a further ten sites available within the next 12 to 18 months.”
Proximity has announced that its grid electricity is sourced from 100% renewable providers.
