BT Global Services is building a new £17m data services centre within the M25 perimeter to serve the enterprise market.

The South London facility will host high end IT services such as business continuity, IT transformation, and IT infrastructure hosting and management for large enterprises and public sector customers.

BT said the new datacentre will use biometric security measures to conform to the high infrastructure security standards required by the likes of financial services firms and government. 

Andy Green, CEO of BT Global Services, said, “Datacentre services are fundamental to the delivery of networked IT services. This significant investment demonstrates our long-term commitment to supplying networked IT services globally.

“Our ambition is to achieve growth of 20% per annum in the datacentre services market.”

The new datacentre is scheduled to be in service by this September, said BT.
