Sudlows and UKFast open carbon-neutral data centre

Data-centre design and build company Sudlows and hosting provider UKFast have teamed up to open a high-power data centre in Manchester in the first quarter of this year.

The new development, called Manoc3, will incorporate 12,000 servers to deliver entirely carbon-neutral hosting to a list of UK clients including HSBC, Barclays, T-mobile and JJB Sports.

Sudlows has been working on the UKFast project for the past 12 months and will incorporate the latest UPS and Free Cooling technology to increase energy efficiency and cost effectiveness.

Both companies give consideration to their environmental impact and Sudlows in particular, as a practicing member of The Green Grid consortium for energy-efficient data centres, will be able to advise and support UKFast throughout the project.
