Telehouse Europe has launched the first phase of Telehouse North Two, its new £135 million data center in London, and has marked the occasion by confirming the London Internet Exchange (LINX) as a partner.
With two floors of secured colocation space immediately available to early adopters, Telehouse North Two will cover 24,000 square meters of gross floor area across an 11-story building within Telehouse’s existing 73,000 square meter Docklands campus – located very close to the center of London.
In addition to LINX, several other new and existing customers have already registered their interest in purchasing space within Telehouse North Two, following advance tours earlier this year.
“LINX is delighted to offer its services to Telehouse customers within North Two. With the North Two data centre, Telehouse have again shown they are at the forefront of data centre development,” said John Souter, CEO of LINX. “Our relationship with Telehouse goes back more than 20 years and it has enabled us to transform London’s Docklands into one of the world’s leading global internet hubs. This partnership is only going to grow in importance, with the new facility delivering greater connectivity and capacity as internet traffic continues to grow.”
The investment in North Two further enhances connectivity at Telehouse’s Docklands campus. This would enable Telehouse to meet the growing demand from Cloud Service Providers (CSPs) and Over-The-Top content providers (OTTs) resulting from the rise in cloud adoption and the increased demands for content. North Two will provide the infrastructure for its existing and new customers to expand, with direct connections to its base of Internet Service Providers (ISPs) and Application Service Providers (ASPs), carriers, mobile and content providers, enterprises and financial service companies.
“The partnership between Telehouse and LINX has driven innovation and progress in the UK and worldwide, leading to unrivaled connectivity,” said Hiroyuki Soshi, Managing Director of Telehouse Europe. “The launch of North Two will further drive the industry to reach new heights and allow businesses to grow exponentially.”
