Telecity Dominance in Manchester continues?

It’s been a busy week for Manchester-based data centre UK Grid. Firstly, they announce a tie up with AMS-IX and IX Reach to provide a virtual blob of Dutch peering goodness in Manchester’s Science Park, then today, it’s announced that Telecity Group have acquired the UK Grid business, adding three further datacentres to their Manchester operations.

This certainly stays true to Telecity’s current form, which is to buy up competing data centre operators, having acquired Manchester’s IFL and Dublin’s DEG in fairly short order over the last 18 months, significantly increasing Telecity Group’s share, making them something of a dominant player in those markets.

Local (and privately-held) competitor M247 put their own slant on Telecity’s latest move in Manchester by announcing an acquisition of their own: a new building to enable further expansion.
