Lunar Digital began the planned multi-million-pound upgrade of the Reynolds House data center in Manchester, UK. The company started development works across all the data halls at the site, including full renovations of the C5 and C6 data halls to optimize power and cooling, the deployment of new cooling solutions to cater to HPC and AI customer needs.

Lunar also added a new UPS system for C3, 4, 5, and 6 data halls, blanking panels in all areas, and underfloor baffling and CAC (Cold Aisle Containment) for colocation areas and HAC (Hot Aisle Containment) for HPC solutions.

Mark Sedgley, CCO at Lunar Digital, said, “We are delighted to have the opportunity to invest in this incredible city. Modernizing our data centers will enable us to deliver highly efficient colocation and with the adoption of AI and machine learning that is transforming the way we live our lives, we are also dedicating our approach to enabling HPC solutions, a fast-growing space that has limited options currently in Manchester.”

He added, "Sustainability and giving back to the environment are incredibly important for Lunar Digital. Our obligation to invest ethically into improving the efficiency of our data centers and advancing our strategy to become not only net zero but carbon positive is something that is very close to our heart.”
