Telehouse International Corporation of Europe, a global data centre service provider, has announced the opening of its fifth data centre in London, Telehouse South.
Telehouse South is now the provider’s largest facility and is located in London Docklands, Blackwall Yard. The first floor of colocation space at Telehouse South provides the capacity for up to 668 racks and 2MW of power, with a further upgrade to 2.7MW for an additional data hall scheduled for the end of 2023.
At full buildout, the 31,000 sqm facility will provide 12,000 sqm of colocation space and a total power capacity of 18MW. At full capacity, Telehouse will have invested £223 million into the development of this ten-story data centre.
Seigo Fukuhara, European bloc chief and managing director, KDDI Europe and Telehouse Europe, said, “London Docklands remains an important strategic location for us and one of the most critical interconnection points in the world. As businesses continue to accelerate their digital transformation post-pandemic and demand for digital services grows, Telehouse South offers enterprises greater efficiency through scalable hybrid cloud infrastructure, with faster access to data and applications and the flexibility to grow.”
The carrier-neutral facility is positioned to serve businesses looking for low latency connectivity to London’s financial district. Telehouse South is interconnected with the existing four data centres through a network of 7,000 dark fibres, across two diverse routes. It will offer connectivity to a diverse ecosystem of over 900 partners, including internet exchanges, cloud service providers, internet service providers and content service providers.
