Everest Data Centres – the privately owned datacentre owner and operator – has selected SSE Telecoms – a UK provider of network infrastructure and datacentre services, and part of the SSE Group – to ensure that Everest’s brand new 66,180 sq ft Reading facility is connected to the company’s existing sites in Slough and London Docklands.
SSE Telecoms implemented a 190km diverse three site dark fibre network to connect Everest Data Centres’ new 1,000 rack, 6 MVA Reading facility to its existing site in London Docklands, and also to connect the London site to Everest’s Slough facility. SSE Telecoms was selected for this implementation as it was able to deliver a fibre rich network within close proximity of all of Everest’s facilities, as well as direct network routes between the company’s core sites.
“As we pride ourselves on providing a first-class service to our customers by delivering quality and secure data centre solutions as standard, our expectations were extremely high at the outset,” said Ed Butler, managing director at Everest Data Centres. “With a service provider as trusted as SSE Telecoms on board, we are in no doubt that our current and long-term needs are fully understood and can be met without fail. Crucially, we are also able to approach our plans for further expansion with confidence, as we look to establish a site in the M25 periphery in the near future.”
By providing this three site fibre network, SSE Telecoms was also able to simply deliver Ethernet, internet access and wavelength services to Everest Data Centres.
“This network solution has been built with the future in mind,” said Chris Jagusz, managing director of SSE Telecoms. “Our scalable and agile network can accommodate further expansion as Everest extends its UK presence with next-generation data centres and we’re delighted to be working with Everest to link its growing infrastructure across the south east of England.”
