IXEurope, Europe's fastest growing specialist datacentre services group, has acquired a new site to convert into a datacentre in London to accommodate strong growth from the corporate market.
A key target for the new site will be financial services organisations. First customers for over 20% of the space have already been signed and delivery of service will commence in January.
With approximately 30,000 square feet of net area, the datacentre is IXEurope's third facility in London and tenth across Europe following its acquisition in October 2005 of a 13-acre (5 hectare) datacentre and business continuity campus in Frankfurt, Germany.
A multi-million pound refit has commenced to ensure the datacentre will have a physical infrastructure that is consistent with IXEurope's industry-leading standards for security, environmental control and power. It will be built to a power density of 1,200 Watts/m2, and already has multiple fibre optic connectivity from BT, COLT and MCI.
Comments Guy Willner, CEO of IXEurope: "This acquisition is part of a Europe-wide expansion plan which we are executing over the coming months at IXEurope.”
London is one of IXEurope's fastest growing markets and the expansion is a result of the company's phenomenal success in 2005. A significant driver of the expansion is the strong traction with London's corporate and financial services market, which has come to rely on IXEurope as these companies increasingly realise the benefits of outsourcing the datacentre aspect of their IT infrastructure.
