In response to significant client demand, international data center colocation provider Serverfarm is adding an additional 8MW of highly efficient IT capacity to its carrier-neutral LON1 data center.
Serverfarm has operated its LON1 data center since March 2018 in Feltham, a location that would benefit from its proximity to Slough, Hayes, Hounslow and Park Royal as well as solid connectivity to all major cloud platforms.
“We will have 3MW of new power capacity available in the next four months, with more to come in 2023,” said Arun Shenoy, Chief Marketing Officer (CMO) at Serverfarm. “And in true Serverfarm sustainability fashion, by building additional data center power capacity without the construction of new facilities, we are avoiding the use of unnecessary concrete, steel or glass.”
The three-story LON1 data center, which has won three awards, has nine halls and a 20MVA power and cooling capacity. With an annualized Power Usage Effectiveness (PUE) design of less than 1.25, the data center is intended to be concurrently maintainable. The facility can support densities up to 40kW/rack and is a member of the NVIDIA DGX-Ready Data Center initiative.
The data center has robust fiber access to data center clusters in Slough and London Docklands, as well as direct network links to major cloud providers such as AWS, Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud Platform (GCP). Additionally, LON1 provides the complete line of Serverfarm’s InCommand Services, which include fully managed asset, capacity, and change management services.
