IX Reach brings cloud options to TeleData’s Manchester data centre

09 November 2018

IX Reach will provide cloud connectivity from TeleData’s flagship data centre in Manchester offering tenants access to its full portfolio of services including direct connections into the cloud.

Cheshire-based IX Reach is a global reseller for internet exchange points and provider of wholesale carrier solutions such as remote peering, low latency point-to-point/multipoint capacity, cloud direct connect solutions, etc.

The company says it has partnered with TeleData due to demand for connectivity and access into the cloud around the North West. TeleData’s independently owned and purpose-built data centre is located within two kilometres of Manchester Airport and 15km from Warrington where the chemical and pharmaceutical industries are prominent. Services offered at the 70,000ft2 facility include server hosting and workplace recovery.

TeleData commercial director Matthew Edgley says: “Having IX Reach – who are official partners of Google Cloud Platform, Microsoft Azure and ‘Advanced Tier’ partners of AWS – present in our data centre will help the local economy and our tenants grow and future-proof their cloud strategies.

“Cloud connect also means any customer of IX Reach within other data centres will be able to connect privately and diversely into our own enterprise grade cloud solutions.”

IX Reach adds that as well as being able to directly connect to the cloud platforms offered by Amazon, Google and Microsoft, TeleData’s tenants will also be able to access more than 170 global PoPs, and all via what it claims is a “simple” cross connect.
