Zenium, a data center provider that’s based in London but hasn’t until now had a facility in the London data center market, has acquired a site in Slough, planning to launch a data center there early next year.
The company is only a few years old and has so far focused on the two markets where it has live data centers: Frankfurt and Istanbul. Now, responding to demand from existing and potential customers, the company is entering the London market.
While this its first London data center, the company’s top management aren’t newcomers to the London data center market. Zenium’s founder and CEO Franek Sodzawiczny co-founded Sentrum, a London colocation provider whose three-site greater-London portfolio was acquired by San Francisco-based Digital Realty Trust in 2012 for about £716 million.
The site, which will be called London One, will provide about 46,000 square feet of data center space and has 15MVA of power capacity available, Zenium said in a statement.
