UK data center operator Infinity SDC announced that it has opened its Slough data center facility, in the heart of the UK's IT corridor. Slough is a key communications hub connecting the M4 corridor with the rest of the world.
As Infinity's first purpose-built data center, it was developed with real estate investment trust company SEGRO, and provides 92,000 square feet of technical space. The facility is supported by 34MVA of power, and has 250kW data halls. It provides connectivity options to multiple ISPs and a large choice of telecommunications carriers including BT, Virgin Media, Colt, Zayo, Level 3, Easynet and Geo Networks.
“We are delighted that our new facility in Slough is complete and ready for clients to use," said Stuart Sutton, Infinity CEO. "This site offers customers a whole range of dedicated, shared and modular co-location solutions to meet their exacting needs in a low risk area with low fibre latency to London.
“Infinity Slough will provide much needed data centre capacity in the Thames Valley area, home to many of Europe’s leading IT and computing companies and a hub of national significance," Sutton added. "The area already has an extremely high concentration of communications companies, and it will become increasingly significant in the future due to initiatives such as Crossrail. Infinity Slough is a fantastic addition to our portfolio of data centres in and around London, further strengthening and extending our offer to clients.”
