- Bytemark Hosting
Bytemark Hosting has been the “geek hosting outfit of choice” for the UK hosting since 2002, because it’s run by programmer, Matthew Bloch, and network engineer, Peter Taphouse. With a staff of software engineers, they are continuing on that trajectory. Their hosting spans £10 per month servers to multi-site managed projects with high uptime guarantees. Bytemark run comprehensive managed hosting service, and have hosted for big national brands like ASDA and Bostik, government departments such as the Department of Health and Central office of Information.
Bytemark already has two large hosting spaces in Manchester, with its core network spread over a futher three data centres in Manchester and London with multiple internal and external ten gigabit connections.
The new data centre, built in York, will enable Bytemark to significantly increase their capacity and enhance service delivery. This is over-provisioned compared to similarly-sized hosts, with a goal of being robust in the face of random disconnections or abuse.
Sudlows’ innovative proposal included a modular design utilising a DX/Fresh Air cooling system and double conversion UPS units, connected in parallel; located within the adjacent electrical switchroom.
The new data centre facilities at Bytemark will now provide a fast and energy efficient platform upon which this rapidly expanding hosting business can continue to provide dyanmic hosting and support services to their clients operations.
