LONDON3 • Slough
VIRTUS Data Centres (VIRTUS), the UK’s fastest growing data centre provider and where the cloud lives in London, has announced the launch of its fourth facility.
The new data centre - to be called LONDON3 - will be located next to the existing VIRTUS LONDON4 in Slough, creating an expandable secure connected campus. Both buildings will be linked and share facilities.
Responding to high demand, the new data centre will provide an additional 3,000 NTM (net technical metres) of IT space. It will increase VIRTUS’ portfolio in London to over 50MW across four sites, making it one of the leading providers in the capital.
The data centre will be fitted out in two phases, with the first phase expected to open for business by late 2018.
VIRTUS' sites in Slough, Hayes and Enfield now serve as a business hub for hundreds of organisations across financial services, the public sector, life sciences and education as well as cloud and IT Services industries, giving access to over 20 public cloud platforms via the majority of global and regional telecommunications providers.
