Former bank vault used as data centre - Data & Server Racks
The Daisy Group has upgraded its underground data centre, which is built in a vault once operated by the Bank of England.
Few concerns over physical security exist at the site - as well as the vault door, the facility is located 25 feet underground.
“We’ve been hosting data for more than 13 years and have seen the market and the demand for secure storage increase dramatically in that time,” said Daisy's corporate sales director Will Kennedy.
“The new facilities and space that we have created in our Manchester data centre mean that we’re able to open up our world-class hosting solutions to any kind of business, large or small, that require secure and instant access to their data and applications."
Swedish internet service provider Bahnhof also operates a data centre in an old underground bunker located in Stockholm.
