UK regional Edge firm Pulsant is expanding its data center in Rotherham, South Yorkshire.
The company this week announced it would invest £3 million ($3.68m) expanding capacity at the facility by 116 percent to 380kW. At more than 2,000 sqm (21,525 sq ft), the Rotherham site will see total IT space increase by 30 percent.
The Rotherham site will also be Pulsant’s first site to pilot non-palm-derived HVO biofuel to replace fossil diesel in its standby power generators. The company is also eliminating the use of FM200 fire suppressant gas, and moving to LED sensor lighting to reduce electricity use.
Ben Cranham, Pulsant COO, said: “Our focus on delivering regional access to Edge infrastructure is seeing us invest significantly to meet the growing demand for access to low latency, high performance, compute, storage, and connectivity services across the Yorkshire and Humber region.”
He continued: “The Rotherham data center investment cements Pulsant’s domain expertise in the Edge infrastructure market, adding further capacity to its platformEDGE infrastructure to reach businesses across the UK.”
Founded in 1995, Pulsant operates 12 data centers across the UK.
