(Ping! Zine Web Hosting Magazine) – Telehouse, a leading provider of global data centres and managed ICT services, has released an additional floor with almost 1000m² of colocation space at Telehouse West, its state-of-the-art flagship data centre facility in London’s East India Dock adjacent to its existing sites.
Telehouse West was opened in 2010 and has rapidly met the demands of UK and multinational businesses for high-capacity data centres, as well as offering connectivity to over 400 ISPs, carriers and Internet Exchanges.
Michelle Reid, Sales and Marketing Director, Telehouse, stated: “Demand has been exceptionally high since we opened Telehouse West just over a year ago and the initial two floors were rapidly taken up. Still on schedule, our new floor offers up to 10kW per rack in one of the best locations in London in terms of low latency connectivity, transport infrastructure and security.”
Telehouse, which housed the original peering switch over 20 years ago, now serves over 1000 major blue-chip corporations worldwide from its 40 plus global data centres. Telehouse has seen the landscape of the internet industry evolve dramatically, tracking demand closely and expanding with the phased build-out approach.
Interestingly, this approach based on major shifts in data centre demand trends reflects large-scale changes in the use of the internet. In the 1990’s, the customer base within the first purpose-built data centre in Europe, Telehouse North, consisted of banks and network providers, the facility played the critical role as a primary and back-up site for many of Europe’s financial institutions as well being the major platform for the internet going public. Telehouse East, opened in 1999 serving the greater international market in the telecommunication and IT industry as well as the dot.com businesses which helped grow the number of websites exponentially, consequently placing greater demand on mainstream bandwidth. Many of the customers which occupy the floors in the newest data centre Telehouse West are the industries that have always been at the forefront at steering the popularity and evolution of the internet; the social, media and gaming industries.
“For over two decades we have helped our customers grow nationally and internationally, anticipating their needs and providing highly reliable managed services, ensuring their reputation for stability and dependability reflects ours, regardless of their size. In return, the level of confidence and loyalty we see from our customers is hard-matched by any of our contemporaries”, concluded Reid.
