London cemented its position as one of the largest datacentre hubs in Europe this week with the opening of two new facilities aiming to provide improved resilience and energy efficiency, and help meet the growing demand for cloud computing.
Telehouse announced the opening of its Telehouse West datacentre in Docklands that will offer high-capacity data storage for businesses, and connectivity for 400 internet service providers, carriers and operators.
The £80m facility offers 99.999 per cent redundancy back up to ensure availability at all times, and a primary sub-station is being built to add a further level of redundancy protection.
Telehouse said that the datacentre has been built to minimise the amount of carbon it uses to help firms meet the Carbon Reduction Commitment legislation, and that any excess heat will be used to generate power for nearby homes and businesses.
Michelle Reid, sales and marketing director at Telehouse, said that the new facility will also give customers the chance to scale data requirements as and when necessary.
