News: Onyx Group to expand South Yorkshire datacentre


Stockton business IT provider, Onyx Group has announced plans to expand its Rotherham datacentre, increasing its ability to provide a range of resilient IT solutions to companies across the UK.

Onyx acquired the 22,000 sq ft Manvers datacentre in 2011 to firmly establish its position as a leading UK datacentre services business in the enterprise space.

The expansion follows a large investment deal worth £42m from ISIS Equity Partners (ISIS) in October 2011.

The fit out will develop a further 20,000 sq ft of high capacity data hosting and workplace recovery seats, which will provide space for 250 racks and 500 business continuity positions.

The Onyx datacentre provides local businesses with a range of innovative and flexible solutions to their hosting and data availability needs. It also offers a comprehensive business continuity service that companies can use in the event of a disruption that can prevent them from accessing their offices.

Neil Stephenson, CEO of the Onyx Group, said: "This is great news for the South Yorkshire region as it demonstrates that businesses are keen to invest here, creating more jobs and providing support to a thriving, innovative business hub in what is fast becoming one of the UK's key regions for growth."

The expansion is in recognition of the Digital Region project that is bringing continuous 25mb+ broadband to over 97% of South Yorkshire, including 550,000 homes and 1.3 million people. The project is financed by European, regional, local and private investment of over £90m, including £30m from the European Regional Development Fund.
