Telehouse upgrades London data centre

1 min read Data Networks & Network Services
Data centre service provider Telehouse has announced the upgrade of its Telehouse North data centre in London.

The upgrade will offer additional capacity for service providers including ISPs, ASPs and system integrators. Its TFM25 suite has been refurbished to include increased space for new and existing customers, as well as power per rack from 0.5-1kW to 3kW.

Opening in October 2021, the refurbished suite promises to deliver high power densities in line with modern demands as well as a fully redundant power supply to meet increasing resiliency requirements.

Telehouse North opened in 1990 as the first purpose-built colocation data centre in Europe and has been the primary home for the London Internet Exchange (LINX) since 1994. Remaining the most connected building in Europe, it is part of Telehouse’s expanding Docklands campus. Telehouse South, the organisation’s fifth data centre in London Docklands, will open in early 2022.

“Telehouse North has been a popular destination for carriers since the 1990s and this refurbishment is in direct response to customer requests to be part of that community,” said Mark Prestridge, senior director of customer experience at Telehouse UK.

“It gives more customers the opportunity to scale up and benefit from being interconnected in a carrier-neutral facility. It’s also a major step in our continued expansion, which includes investing in new facilities like Telehouse South, alongside the modernisation of legacy buildings such as Telehouse North.”
