Pulsant expands Rotherham DC capacity by 116%

13 October 2023

Pulsant is expanding its Rotherham data centre capacity by 116% to 380kW. The new power will accommodate growing regional demand for low latency, high performance, scalable network infrastructure.

At more than 2,000 SQM, the Rotherham site will see total IT space increase by 30% to support a growing technology sector demand in the Yorkshire and Humber region with edge colocation, hyperscale cloud access, and distributed compute services.

Rotherham will be Pulsant’s first site to pilot non-palm derived HVO biofuel to replace fossil diesel in its standby power generators. Pulsant is also eliminating the use of FM200 fire suppressant gas and moving to LED sensor lighting to reduce electricity use across the centre.

“Our focus on delivering regional access to edge infrastructure is seeing us invest significantly to meet the growing demand for access to low latency, high performance, compute, storage and connectivity services across the Yorkshire and Humber region,” said Ben Cranham, chief operating officer at Pulsant.

“Our platformEDGE infrastructure, in Rotherham and across the UK, is supporting the increasing number of business decision makers challenging cloud only strategies on cost and vendor lock-in grounds and their IT counterparts who see the limitations in the hyperscale model,” said Cranham.
“The Rotherham data centre investment cements Pulsant’s domain expertise in the edge infrastructure market, adding further capacity to its platformEDGE infrastructure to reach businesses across the UK.”
