MANOC (Manchester Network Operation Centre) is the home to UKFast's servers and network.
MANOC I & MANOC II originally started as facilities within data centres owned by The University of Manchester. MANOC I was located in the Kilburn Building on Oxford Road (home of the School of Computer Science). After The University of Manchester realised they did not have sufficient power to grow or maintain the facility if it grew much larger, a new MANOC (MANOC II) was established again with the University of Manchester, this time in the Science Park. It is the UK’s second biggest internet hub and a nerve centre for the North West: almost all of Manchester’s net traffic goes through here.
