Daisy Group contracted to manage 2e2 Data Centre Business

DaisyDaisy Group has been appointed by Oakley Capital Private Equity to manage the 2e2 Data Centre Business.

The 2e2 Data Centre was rescued by Oakley after its parent business 2e2 Group went into administration. However, Oakley decided to pass the responsibility over to Daisy.

Daisy has said it will work with existing data centre employees of the business to provide data and hosting services from its data centres in Gateshead and Reading. It said that combined together, these data centres would double the amount of data centre power available to the Group’s customers, increasing from 2Mw to 4Mw.

Matthew Riley, chief exec of Daisy, said customers would also get the opportunity to work with a long-term partner with “proven expertise” in the data and hosting market.

He added that Daisy is now placed to provide stability to existing 2e2 customers and “offering further expertise and resource to Daisy customers”.
