Individual Locked Racks

As a minimum security measure, many customers take advantage of this facility and, of course, these also benefit from the standard security measures taken throughout our two Manchester data centres - shared power distribution, UPS, fire prevention, climate control.

Private Rooms and Suites

If security or privacy is paramount to your needs, a private room or suite in our M247 datacentres is the best solution and we can provide a dedicated walled off space, configured to your specific needs. Power supply and access systems to your area are dedicated exclusively to your needs for maximum security and availability. Your suite will be located inside a shared climate area and will benefit from our standard security, UPS and fire prevention systems at the UK datacentre complex.

Shared Rooms

M247 is able to provide a dedicated area, within a shared room of their Manchester data centres, into which you can install your own cabinets. These will occupy a shared area alongside equipment belonging to other M247 customers. Each cabinet is supplied with a dedicated dual power feed which is drawn from a shared power distribution system. Cable trays are included and you enjoy all of the standard sophisticated climate control, UPS, security and fire prevention that we have to offer. Talk to us if you would like a quotation for us to supply cabinets or other hardware.


Although still located within a shared area of the UK data centre, a cage provides you with space separated from our other customer. You share power distribution, UPS, fire prevention and climate control systems with our other clients.
