METRO2C Alliance adds TeleData Manchester

Strategic telecoms Alliance adds 70,000 sq ft of data centre space.

DUBLIN, IRELAND -- (Marketwired) -- 02/24/14 -- The METRO2C Alliance, a collaboration of leading connectivity providers, data centre operators and Internet Exchanges founded by Sea Fibre Networks, today revealed TeleData as a member. TeleData's fully owned 70,000sq ft Manchester based data centre provides customers with secure, resilient and efficient colocation and data centre services supported by best-in-class connectivity solutions. This announcement heralds the first of many to come from Manchester as the Alliance aims to support digital infrastructure and the regions rich history of innovation.

Manchester is at the heart of the UK's North West "digital cluster" which is the second largest in Europe. It is home to companies driving innovations in cloud-computing and Big Data such as Cisco, EMC, IBM, and Oracle and multi-nationals like Siemens, Kelloggs and Adidas. Data centres are a critical physical layer for development of next-generation cloud based IT solutions and the addition of TeleData's Delta House facility provides METRO2C customers with a secure and stable platform to deliver these services. The Delta House facility is the only data centre in the UK to benefit from an on-site BS5979 Security Centre and 2(N+N) UPS adding an extra layer of physical security and technical resilience for customers.

Diane Hodnett, CEO of the Alliances' founding member, Sea Fibre Networks, said: "The distance from Manchester to Dublin is shorter than from Manchester to London so making sure the region is properly served in terms of connectivity and secure data centre services like Teledata's is a top priority for the METRO2C Alliance."

Matt Edgley, Sales Director at Teledata said: "We are delighted to join the METRO2C Alliance and share its vision that the future of cloud-computing is based on the collaboration of critical digital infrastructures including data centres."

Predicting the future has never been more challenging - not because of the lack of data but because of the flood of ungoverned and risk laden information. Microsoft states that 2.5 exabytes of data are created every day. Expectations and reliance on data are being pushed to the limits, as demands around hybrid options continue to grow.
Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.
Business professionals no longer wonder if they'll migrate to the cloud; it's now a matter of when.
