Manchester, UK

U.S. based hosting company NetActuate, a company with global operations operating one of the world’s largest IPv4 and IPv6 peered networks, has announced the addition of a core data center Point-of-Presence (PoP) in Manchester, United Kingdom. For NetActuate’s platform clients, the new facility offers a full array of NetActuate services, including BGP anycast, IP transit, bare metal, colocation, and virtual/cloud options.

The NetActuate Manchester data center is a colocation facility with approximately 70,000 square feet of space. NetActuate claims it to be the first data center in the UK with 2(N+N) UPS redundancy and an on-site BS5979 control center, as well as industry-standard environmental monitoring, fire detection, and suppression systems to prevent environmental threats to hardware. It also has a long list of certifications including ISO27001.

“We’re excited to expand further within the UK for our customers,” said Mark Mahle, Chief Engineering Officer at NetActuate. “The new facility gives us in-country disaster recovery and active-active HA options within the UK, while improving latency for consumers.”

Anycast Delivery Platform

Customers at this new data center location may also take advantage of direct connectivity to LINX Manchester (as well as the NetActuate Global Network), which includes over 130 linked networks, including a mix of Internet Service Providers (ISPs) and large content networks. The Internet Exchange would often surpass 170Gbps. In September of last year, it reached a new maximum traffic peak of 255Gbps, making it one of Europe’s busiest exchanges.

In terms of providers, NetActuate’s anycast delivery platform, which is built on one of the world’s biggest peered IPv4 and IPv6 networks, would allow clients to quickly establish and extend their worldwide presence

The NetActuate anycast platform expands NetActuate’s worldwide presence and was designed to enable low latency and high dependability across a wide range of global markets, including Manchester and over 30 U.S. and international locations.
