Noel Meaney, founder of Citadel100 datacentres, euNetworks and Seafibre Networks, has announced his new datacentre venture: Stellium. Targeting wholesale, rack services and cloud solutions.
The Stellium campus has the power, scale and flexibility to provide enterprise-level cloud infrastructure, dedicated and shared co-location services, and powered shell facilities that enable customers to configure the datacentre to their own requirements.
Stellium’s Tier III+ datacentre campus is located in Newcastle and has a power usage effectiveness (PUE) rating of 1.16. The campus has its own dedicated power supply from an adjacent National Grid Interconnector, which provides up to 80MVA via four 20 MVA 11kV feeds from two dedicated SSE substations.
Meaney has also invested in a 40km metro fibre network in Newcastle. The multi-duct network is the first of its kind to be built in the city and connects Stellium’s datacentres to multiple long-haul and international carriers.
Newcastle is located on the same latitude as Dublin and Amsterdam and much like those cities is fast becoming an internationally recognised technology innovation hub; a recent report shows it as second only to London for growth in the UK tech sector.
