Radiant was handed the lead role for BSkyB on the deal, which has seen the broadcaster build new centres across London and Scotland. Eversheds acted on the property elements of the transaction .Radiant, the boutique created by a group of breakaway partners from Barlow Lyde & Gilbert, Latham & Watkins and Morrison & Foerster, has been working with BSkyB since launching in January 2011.
Radiant partner Andrew Giverin said: "Data centres continue to be a critical focus for any large technology driven company. For all the attention given to cloud computing, on a final analysis cloud is about moving software between (or within) data centres and is just helping fuel the building boom.
