London, United Kingdom – Thursday, 18th May 2023
AtlasEdge, a leading pan-European Edge data centre provider, and LINX, one of Europe’s largest internet exchanges, have announced a new partnership, expanding the presence and offering of both companies in Manchester, UK
The partnership will accelerate the transformation of AtlasEdge’s existing Salford site into an interconnectivity hub, with customers able to benefit from connection to LINX’s members and services in Manchester.
LINX Manchester is the Internet Exchange Point for the north of the UK, where over 150 national and international networks are present and peering. The interconnection hub run by LINX is close to hitting 400Gbps of traffic, making it one of the largest exchange points in Europe.
AtlasEdge announced the expansion of its existing Manchester site in December 2022. Two new facilities will provide colocation IT capacity and low-latency services to AtlasEdge’s end users, allowing near-instant connectivity and collaboration. LINX currently has a physical technical setup in five data centre locations in Manchester.
The demand for regional interconnection services in the UK has risen considerably in recent years, and both AtlasEdge and LINX are capturing opportunities to deliver increased capacity driven by customer-led demand.
“With the continued growth in demand for LINX Manchester, we are really pleased to be able to be partnering with AtlasEdge. Manchester has such a vibrant digital scene right now and provides such a diverse hub for interconnection from London.”Jennifer Holmes, CCO, LINX
“We are delighted to be collaborating with LINX, one of the world’s leading internet exchange points. This move bolsters our service offering in one of the UK’s fastest-growing digital and media hubs, allowing our customers to significantly scale their peering relationships.”Dan Thomas, SVP Sales, AtlasEdge
Manchester is the home of the smart urban environment, MediaCityUK, and is working towards becoming an internationally recognised digital city with the launch of its own digital strategy, a step forwards that will complement the ambitions of both AtlasEdge and LINX.
