Coleraine based data centre gears up for continued growth

  • Northern Irish data centre gears up for continued growth as businesses adapt IT infrastructure and data storage approaches.

    Highlighting their optimism for the future, Prescient Capital, have re-committed on their investment in the centre, renaming the facility Prescient Data Centre.

    Following an upsurge in new business over recent months and substantial contracts agreed with three Northern Ireland-based businesses which represent 20% growth for the company in 2021, the Prescient DC team is optimistic about the post-pandemic recovery and future opportunities for the Centre.

    Commenting on increasing interest in the facility Doug Friend, CEO of Prescient Data Centres said, “We are reassured about the prospects for the Prescient data centre in Coleraine following a massive influx of interest displayed by companies based across the Island of Ireland with diverse data storage needs.”

    Stephen Soraghan, Managing Director at Edge Automation Computing Services Ltd added: “With data, communications and edge computing playing a more important role in all of our lives than ever we strongly believe that the largest carrier-neutral data centre in Northern Ireland will be the choice for anyone with a requirement.” 

    Mr Soraghan also stated: “As the closest data centre to North America, Prescient has the fastest connectivity for any UK data centre and also have a unique position of being a well-connected UK data centre within a very short – drivable – distance from Dublin and Cork and with easy access to the post-Brexit EU market.”

    For many businesses, the past year has been a catalyst for adapting IT infrastructure to allow staff to operate remotely. Migrating this infrastructure to a purpose-built data centre with a choice of connectivity options has helped to support these changes and lower the risk associated with hosting critical data in an unattended building, often with poor power backup and security. 

    As more companies announce that they will not return to their brick-and-mortar premises, it is expected that large and small businesses alike will seek out the security and continuity guaranteed by Prescient DC through their emphasis on security with 24-hr CCTV surveillance, power and cooling backup for ultimate peace of mind.
