DataCentred: The Northern Home of the Cloud – We’re a new company with a lot of heritage.
DataCentred provides regional, carrier-rich co-location services, combined with next generation shared computer processing and storage solutions (Infrastructure-as-a-Service “IaaS”) from our MediaCity facility in Salford. The facility comprises 3,000 square metres with capacity for 850 racks.
DataCentred has been created by the founder who established the first pan-European colocation company, now a £1.4bn market cap FTSE 250 organisation. DataCentred’s management team comprises thought leaders who have joined from some of the world’s leading technology companies including IBM, the BBC, HP and Cap Gemini.
DataCentre is the largest UK-owned and UK-operated public OpenStack cloud. As one of the first large-scale OpenStack deployments in the UK, DataCentred’s technical experience brings clarity and knowledge to your own design and commissioning. DataCentred’s high-performance platform helps you to meet your obligations in terms of data sovereignty, security, access and compliance.
DataCentred’s team has been developing an OpenStack platform in MediaCityUK in Manchester since 2011. DataCentred’s technical experience and commitment to regularly updating our platform means you get your hands on OpenStack’s latest and greatest features in a production environment backed by an expert team.
DataCentred also offers an open platform and is committed to open source and interoperability. DataCentred’s OpenStack implementation exposes all the APIs. For DataCentred, open source is about collaboration, technical excellence and openness. DataCentred is not interested in constructing elaborate proprietary interfaces, open source should be open for business.
