New cloud hosting consultancy arrives in Manchester

New cloud hosting consultancy arrives in Manchester


Steamhaus, a new cloud and network consultancy has launched in Manchester. Located in the Northern Quarter, Steamhaus will fill the technical and customer service void that often prevents companies from exploiting the vast potential of a cloud-based infrastructure.
Steamhaus will give digital and creative agencies, online retailers, app developers and high traffic websites in the North West choice and flexibility. Completely provider-independent, the team will go beyond the traditional hosting approach to source, design, build, maintain and manage the most appropriate cloud set-up for each client, helping brands and agencies better understand their applications and code.
The new venture is headed up by Daniel Keighron-Foster, founder and former managing director of Melbourne Server Hosting, who has personally invested £500,000 in the company.
He said: “I’m delighted to return to the Manchester hosting community. Manchester is a fantastically well connected city and is vying for a place on the world stage for its digital capabilities. This position has seen the launch of initiatives such as IX Manchester and the appearance of a host of colocation and hosting companies. But there are still too many brands and agencies that are yet to reap the benefits of these services.
“This is often due to a shortage of in-house skills or over-stretched resources which make it more difficult to manage a cloud-based infrastructure. Steamhaus will remove those barriers by managing the entire process for our clients, freeing up growing brands and agencies to focus on their core business.’’
Supported by a strong technical team with more than 50 years’ combined experience, the Steamhaus heritage means it is uniquely positioned to understand customer pain points when it comes to hosting – in particular with regards to designing, implementing and maintaining a cloud infrastructure.
David Mapple, co-founder of Outcider said: "Following the development of our media research software, we were looking for a partner who could build a high-availability hosting platform that can scale upwards with demand.

"We engaged with Steamhaus and have been extremely impressed with how much they know and the positive impact they've had on the performance and reliability
of our hosting, and truly consider them to be a partner to our business.”
