Equinix Manchester data centres

Manchester is one of Europe’s fastest growing digital and technology hubs. With an influx of infrastructure and business investment, Manchester is becoming one of the UK’s most prominent centres of creative, digital and media companies.

As the UK’s second largest city, Manchester occupies a key strategic location in the centre of the country, at the intersection of the UK’s highly resilient “figure-of-eight” fibre optic network. The city also features dense telecommunication connectivity to major UK cities, the U.S. and Europe. Combined, these factors make Manchester an ideal data centre hub.

The Equinix data centres are located proximate to MediaCityUK, the largest purpose-built creative, digital and technology community in Europe.

Equinix hosts major Cloud Service Providers including AWS, Microsoft Azure, Oracle and Google Cloud, offering customers direct connectivity which bypasses the Internet for their multi and hybrid cloud strategies.
