The Staffordshire city of Stoke-on-Trent is well known for its pottery industry and this is referenced in both the city’s common name of “the Potteries” and the nickname of the city’s football club Stoke City FC, “the Potters”. However, it would be far from potty to use a considerable diversity of data centre products, including networking equipment including routers, switches and firewalls, in the creation of high quality data centres in Stoke. Below, we explain further about why we at Data Centre Shop could help many people to benefit from great data centres in the Potteries.
There’s much more about Stoke than Robbie Williams
What is today the city of Stoke-on-Trent was originally formed as a town through a federation of six separate towns – namely, those of Stoke-upon-Trent, Hanley, Burslem, Tunstall, Longton and Fenton – and several villages in the early twentieth century. The city was, in the 2011 census, recorded as having a population of 270,726. However, the larger Stoke-on-Trent Built-up Area, which also includes the nearby towns of Newcastle-under-Lyme and Kidsgrove, was recorded as having a population of 372,775, while, for the even larger area of North Staffordshire, which includes the Built-up Area and Staffordshire Moorlands, the recorded population was 469,000.
Why we can help in the creation of great Stoke data centres
Why do we mention all of this? Because we really want to emphasise that there are many people who live in and near Stoke who could benefit from great data centres in the city. We reckon that, right now, there are likely to be many people in North Staffordshire who either currently want to use such data centres or will be eager to do so in the future. Hence, many local companies could hugely benefit from creating great data centres in Stoke.
They can create such facilities with assistance from reliable data centre products from specialist data centre products retailer Data Centre Shop. We offer such products from several companies, including Cisco, HP and Red Hat, that have made their names in providing good data centre products.
