Digital Realty Trust, an owner and manager of corporate and Internet gateway datacentres, has announced the construction of a custom datacentre facility for HSBC.
Located on a development site in suburban London that was acquired by Digital Realty Trust in April 2007, the new state-of-the-art datacentre facility is being built to support HSBC’s global computing infrastructure. HSBC and Digital Realty Trust have signed a long-term lease agreement for the build-to-suit datacentre.
The companies have collaborated closely in developing its specifications to support HSBC’s security requirements, environmental goals, and a wide range of other technical and business needs. The project is expected to be completed in late 2008.
