Datacentreplus Assisting Greater Manchester To Become The UK’s Leading Digital City

Datacentreplus is playing a key role for Greater Manchester to become the UK’s leading digital city. A city with a bold economy, which actively encourages businesses to invest and grow, where technology is used to deliver positive change and also connects young people with opportunities.

Based near Media City UK, Datacentreplus was founded in 2015. Since this time, it has flourished into a thriving, well – established company providing Colocation, Dedicated Servers, Cloud Hosting and Backup for growing and established businesses in and around Greater Manchester.

It is wholly privately owned by founder and Managing Director, Mashukul Hoque, a Manchester-based entrepreneur operating from Salford with a strong track record in the IT services sector.

There are only around 220 data centres in the UK and very few are privately owned.  Building a data centre is a complex endeavour and there are strong barriers to entry for new players (for example, significant up-front capital investment) which means it is significant when a new entrant comes along.

Our aim at Datacentreplus is to become a key contributor to the growth of the digital sector in the North West and become a key driver to the success of businesses looking to set up here.  We very much want to play a strong role within the technology community in and around Manchester and hopefully encourage, attract and nurture digital talent to this region of the country.

We are also a company who strongly believe in conducting our business practices in an ethical way. This means that ethical values are at the heart of everything we do and we are very proud to support a wide range of local businesses and community across Greater Manchester. These include through the likes of education, visiting local primary schools to discuss the importance of technology and careers in the digital sector, our participation in the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) program, which encourages children to explore STEM related concepts, as well as supporting the likes of the Mancunian Way and Forever Manchester charity.

Founder and Managing Director of Datacentreplus Mashukul Hoque says:

“Manchester is my home town and it always made perfect sense to invest here.  We are proud to be able to contribute to the growth of Manchester’s digital economy and look forward to creating jobs and helping businesses flourish here.”


Datacentreplus Completes Significant Investment Programme In Data Centre

Manchester MediaCity-based hosting company Datacentreplus is pleased to announce the completion of its power upgrade works. We have just completed the last phase of power upgrade works that started back in April 2017. This represents a substantial investment in the business and one that will see it serving its customers well into the future.

Datacentreplus owns and manages the data centre itself and has been serving customers since 2015, offering colocation, dedicated servers and other cloud services. It now has a strong customer base and continues to grow rapidly whilst developing an enviable reputation for customer service.

“The power upgrade was a long time in the planning and it is with great relief that it was completed on-time and represents a huge investment for us in being able to provide class-leading resilience to our customers”.

The works comprised of upgrading the power to the data centre (tripling the amount of power available) and also an upgrade to to the latest Riello UPS systems with N+1 backup. We also took the opportunity to add more rack capacity to the data hall as a result of strong customer demand.

In addition to state-of-the-art UPS systems, the data centre facilities are also fully protected through 24×7 security and resilient communications so that there is no interruption to customer service.

We are continuing to invest in the data centre and future upgrades will include better customer facilities and work areas to help fulfil its ambitions to double its size over the next 12 months.
