Service provider will invest £7 million in internet infrastructure project in Nottingham
Service provider Timico is investing £7 million in an internet infrastructure project at its headquarters in Newark, Nottinghamshire.
The premises will host a new data centre along with an advanced network operations centre (NOC) to support the firm’s network services business. The build will cost £5
million with a further £2 million planned on increasing capacity over the next three years.
The company said the facility would enable it to offer regional customers a high-quality data centre with diverse connectivity to the internet via both sites in London and Manchester. It will also provide Timico’s corporate customers with additional disaster recovery resources outside the M25.
Timico will now be able to provide these services nationwide with facilities in Fareham in Hampshire, London Docklands and Newark .
Timico co-founder and chief technology officer Trefor Davies (pictured) said: “Our biggest focus is going to be in the private cloud. Whilst we have customers waiting to locate physical equipment in Newark the bulk of the investment is going to be in a virtualised infrastructure.
“Timico has been offering its customers a virtualised platform for over three years and this will represent a step up in that capability.
“Also, many of our customers already use virtualisation internally. This investment will allow them to seamlessly evolve their Disaster Recovery strategy to include resources maintained in the cloud.
“The cost of connectivity for Wide Area Networks (WANs) has plummeted in recent times and this makes distribution of such resources cost effective.”
Timico said the NOC represents a step-up in its network monitoring capabilities.
