The power of two… We’ve recently announced that work has begun on our second cloud build-out, across the city at our second data centre location, TeleData Manchester.
That geographic separation is important, as it will mean that we’ll be able to offer even greater reliability to our cloud customers, who will benefit from what is best described as “commercial” resilience.
In what we believe to be a unique among cloud infrastructure providers in the North West, customers will be able to take advantage of a doubling up (often referred to as “redundancy”) at each layer of our infrastructure — both in physical terms, and supplier terms: diversity right across our offering.
We feel that this is a really important development, as we look to find new ways to support our customers as they continue to move towards a cloud based way of working. With more and more services delivered via cloud applications, this kind of resilience is going to be increasingly significant.
Keep an eye here on our blog and on Twitter for further updates on our progress, and for more insight into the possibilities and benefits of a resilient cloud.
