Manchester data centre operator Teledata has reported a 40% increase in recurring contract revenues over the past 12 months, with 30% of that growth occurring during H1 of 2022. The firm’s colocation revenues have increased by 50% in the 12 months to June 2022.
The announcement comes on the back of a period of significant investment for the Wythenshawe based firm, which announced last month that it will be opening a second data centre facility in Manchester later this year. This follows expansion at the firm’s existing site, where three new data halls were opened in 2020 and 2021, taking Teledata’s total number of data halls up to five currently. The firm, which was traditionally a colocation provider but evolved to provide both colocation and cloud services in 2016, states that this investment is necessary in order to meet the demand Manchester is currently facing.
Matt Edgley, director for Teledata commented; “There is currently a lack of data centre space in Manchester, with capacity in the region nearing critical point. Data centre space is becoming harder to secure so we’re working hard to grow our facility in line with regional demand. As a data centre provider, we have a responsibility to our clients to ensure that continuous capacity is available.
“It’s been positive to see that despite the many challenges the past couple of years have brought, our investments into connectivity and capacity are reaping dividends. The investments being made are attracting not only new customers to Teledata, but also additional fibre providers which are investing heavily into the expansion of their own networks to deliver diverse solutions to network intensive clients. This is increasing high capacity connectivity and dark fibre options for our customers and enables us to provide consistently resilient and competitive options for both cloud and colocation customers.”
