Level 3 Communications expands London data centre capacity

The new facility will increase enterprise customers' global operations using Level 3's network footprint and service portfolio

By CBR Staff Writer

Telecommunications and Internet service provider, Level 3 Communications has launched an advanced data centre facility in Hayes, West London to serve enterprise customers in the region.

The new facility will offer its enterprise customers with the data centre space that is located on Level 3’s fibre routes across the Atlantic and its low latency routes into the Chi-X trading platform in Slough.

Addition of the new facility is part of Level 3’s strategy to extend its data centre expertise globally by investing to upgrade, expand data centres and managed services.

The facility, which comes under the Level 3 Premier Elite data centres, features high density cabinets, 24 x 7 security and maintenance support and will provide additional capacity to Level 3’s three existing data centres in central London.

Level 3’s new data centre will also offer disaster recovery, replication and redundancy facilities and will enable customers in the region to expand or outsource heir enterprise data centre requirements.

The company claims it has chosen Hayes to help enable companies to meet disaster recovery objectives, while also being able to perform synchronous replication.

Hayes is located equidistant between the Chi-X trading platform in Slough and central London’s financial services district, as well as being on Level 3’s primary low latency route across the Atlantic.
