Proximity Data Centres is expanding its network of data centres in the UK by announcing the opening of its tenth facility

Proximity Data Centres has announced the opening of its tenth UK facility. 

The latest of the company’s growing portfolio of edge data centres will service Central England, one of the UK’s largest regions.  This is in line with the company’s strategy to provide a nationwide network of highly connected regional edge data centres which meets the digital needs of 95% of the population outside London. 

The new facility, Proximity Milton Keynes Edge 10, is a purpose built, tier 3 standard 48,000 sq ft facility with multiple data halls and provides 3 MW of available power. 

John Hall, Managing Director, Colocation at Proximity Data Centres said, “Proximity Milton Keynes Edge 10 is ideally located for the many businesses in Central England looking for secure, scalable colocation services combined with high speed low latency connectivity to meet the needs of increasingly demanding users and applications. The region also has a rapidly expanding technology sector and Edge 10 is ideally positioned to support this important market. 

“Edge 10 is an important milestone for Proximity as we are now well on the way to establishing a truly UK-wide edge data centre footprint capable of reaching 95% of the population. We plan to have a further ten sites available within the next 12 to 18 months.”
