Business communications company Daisy Group has completed a £1m upgrade to its Manchester data centre and has unveiled plans to open a fifth UK site by the end of the year. Daisy has carried out a raft of improvements to boost capacity and efficiency at the underground Manchester complex, which sits behind a 12-tonne bomb-proof door in a former Bank of England vault in the city centre.
The investment increases capacity by 50%, taking the number of servers from 2,000 to 3,000. Daisy has installed additional power and cooling infrastructure so that another 1,000 servers can be installed in the future, which would give it sufficient capacity to accommodate at least two years' growth.
