European data center firm AtlasEdge has relaunched a data center in Leeds, UK, after acquiring and renovating the facility. AtlasEdge has since invested more than £13 million to upgrade the site, known as LBA001, which is the first Tier III standard data center in the city.

"We are delighted to be launching this site, the first of its kind in Leeds and one which is purpose-built to serve growing requirements for lower latency, higher performance, and localized solutions," said Giuliano Di Vitantonio, CEO, AtlasEdge. "This is yet another example of us taking a site with existing connectivity, and leveraging our combined expertise to deliver an outstanding new facility which will act as an important regional aggregation hub and support the next wave of growth in digital infrastructure for the surrounding area.”

“The infrastructure that this state-of-the-art data center brings to Leeds is game-changing, and, as an anchor customer, we are very proud to support this launch,” added David Cusworth, EMEA managing director, Hardy Fisher Services. “It allows companies to have the connectivity they need around the clock, the security to mitigate against internal and external risks, a manned site and technical team for support, and carbon efficiency thanks to the cooling systems that are used. It’s the full package, and it’s available on our clients’ doorstep.”
