A North East based technology provider is strengthening its position in the UK through the acquisition of a data centre west of London. Onyx Group have purchased the 12,000 sq ft data centre in Slough to enable the Group to build a larger presence in the Capital.
The locality of the new facility will support the need for financial services companies to have low latency in data centres and also support Onyx’s London business. The new data centre will add to Onyx’s five other data centres across the UK, and will provide facilities for businesses based along the M4 corridor. The new facility also includes a 100 seat workplace recovery centre, which will enable businesses to relocate their offices in the event of a disruption. The Centre is due to open in time for the London 2012 Olympic Games, which could provide major disruptions to the city, and will enable businesses to prepare for the potential impact it could have on their business.
