Host-IT has announced the opening of its latest data centre located in Chester. It is ideally situated to serve the north west of the UK and follows four other site openings during 2023 in Birmingham, Bristol, Nottingham and Leeds, expanding the total portfolio to six with its pre-existing Milton Keynes data centre.

Set in 3.4 acres, the facility includes meeting rooms, office space and kitchen facilities. A full range of services is available including shared colocation, quarter, half and full racks.

More advanced services such as dedicated servers, bare metal and back-up are also accessible. The secure facility has 24/7 access and provides on-site engineering support.
