Located alongside the city’s thriving ‘Silicon Canal’, the brand new 5,800m2 state-of-the-art facility will deliver high performance, energy efficient data centre space to meet the increasing demands of businesses across the Midlands and the UK.
The launch of the new Birmingham Central facility adds an exciting new chapter to 6DG’s longstanding commitment to invest in the region, with the new addition to the portfolio adding to the diverse footprints of the company’s existing South Birmingham and London based data centres.
Mike Ing, COO at 6DG, commented, ‘This is a significant investment from Six Degrees that helps to cement Britain’s second city as a major digital hub for the future. It also establishes us as one of the leading players in the Midlands hosting marketplace.’
As one of the largest data centre properties in the Midlands, the new facility has been designed to the highest standard. It is Uptime Institute Tier 3 Design Certified, meaning that its performance and reliability have been independently assessed. Each data hall delivers 1.5MW of capacity with energy efficiency capabilities at a design PUE of 1.3, almost halving the power consumption for customers migrating from legacy facilities.
