(Ping! Zine Web Hosting Magazine) – The London area will soon have more hosting options, thanks to PEER 1 Hosting’s new Portsmouth, UK data center.
The provider of services including managed hosting, colocation, and cloud was expected to officially launch the new facility on Monday.
The data center is 57,800 square feet and can provide for 20 thousand servers. It’s also energy-efficient.
Commenting on the matter in a press release, PEER 1 Hosting President and CEO Fabio Banducci stated, “This new datacenter represents a significant investment for PEER 1 in the UK and European markets. There is a shortage of green datacenter capacity in the region which creates a great potential for growth.”
“We see this location meeting the needs of our customers going forward in an increasingly data rich world,” he continued.
According to PEER 1 Hosting EMEA managing director Dominic Monkhouse, the opening stands for a $70 million dollar investment. The web host has seventeen data centers in both Europe and North America. For more information on PEER 1 Hosting, visit: http://www.peer1.com/
