Savvis, a CenturyLink company and global leader in cloud infrastructure and hosted IT solutions for enterprises, has announced the availability of a new data centre in London Docklands. The new facility offers the opportunity for long-term expansion and will complement Savvis' existing European locations in the London area - Docklands, Slough and Reading - and Frankfurt, Germany.
Known as Savvis LO3, the new data centre has some 1.53 megawatts of IT load available and 10,800 sq ft of raised floor space. Savvis has made further investments in the data centre's infrastructure, increasing resilience to ensure that it can support the company's standard 100% service level agreement on power that is maintained across all of its global data centres.
"Our global clients in the financial services sector need expandable, high-quality colocation, managed infrastructure and cloud with the close proximity to markets needed for low-latency trading. As they expand their trading operations, demand for this type of capability as a flexible resource is growing," said Neil Cresswell, Savvis EMEA managing director. "Against the background of ever-increasing power constraints in the London region, we are delighted to deliver this power and space to support the continued growth of our clients."
Globally, Savvis currently operates a Tier 1 application transport network and more than 50 data centres with more than 2 million square feet of raised floor space designed to support enterprise IT operations.
