At a time when the datacentre sector is set to grow by another 28 percent, Isle of Man online technology group Wi-Manx are about to unveil their new, state of the art datacentre. Planned for early September, the official opening of the centre will coincide with a rebrand for the 100% Manx-owned company – which is currently in progress in partnership with BRANDSavvy, a Glasgow based branding agency.
The new datacentre facility will feature the latest generation of redundant power systems, cooling technology, access control, high-speed connectivity options and server systems. From this new datacentre, Wi-Manx will be launching a comprehensive range of hosting services including dedicated-servers, co-location solutions, virtual servers, cloud hosting, complex hosting, domain-name and e-mail services.
Meanwhile, the company’s rebrand will position Wi-Manx as a global player in the datacentre market, giving immediate impact as well as longevity as the company’s success continues worldwide. BRANDSavvy has a wealth of experience in global brand development and positioning, and plans to develop a powerful brand for Wi-Manx that will truly reflect the nature of its business, while strongly targeting the UK and global markets.
According to a report from Tariff Consultancy Ltd, the datacentre sector will grow dramatically over the next five years – with revenue across Europe increasing by 53 percent by the end of 2016. Companies such as Wi-Manx are meeting this high demand. The benefits the Isle of Man are immense, with the attraction of global brand names and the creation of local jobs to sustain this growth in the industry.
David Stickland, Chief Commercial Officer of Wi-Manx said:
“At Wi-Manx, we are a strong player in the international datacentre business, offering some the very latest technology in a competitive package. Our new datacentre will increase our productivity and allow us to truly participate on the world stage. Together with our investment in the centre, we are also rebranding – as our profile grows, it’s important our business has a look and feel that our customers can recognise and trust.”
