In a deal worth £9.6m, UK Grid Data Centres has brokered a new partnership with managed hosting specialist UKFast.

The deal fast tracks the availability of hosting facilities to business and allows Manchester to continue as a big player in the UK’s digital growth, which remains on an upward curve in this time of uncertainty. The collaboration sees the facility re-branded as MaNOC (Manchester Network Operations Centre.) The project increases UKFast’s data centre capacity by 350 per cent allowing colocation to return to its portfolio of services alongside managed hosting.
