VIRTUS data centres has announced plans to open its fourth data centre in London, LONDON3, which will be located next to its LONDON4 site in Slough.

The company’s existing sites in Slough, Hayes and Enfield are now developed to serve as individual business hubs for organisations across financial services, public sector, life sciences and education, cloud and IT services.

The data centres also provide access to over 20 public cloud platforms from a wide selection of global and regional telecommunications providers.

Neil Cresswell, CEO, VIRTUS Data Centres, said: “The rapid adoption of cloud and digital business across all industries is driving the need for the kind of high quality and innovative data centre space that VIRTUS develops and operates.

“We have seen increasing demand for high performance solutions as well as more and more requirements to connect to cloud providers and other services.”

By responding to the demand for hyper efficient, metro fibre connected, flexible and scalable colocation space, the new LONODN3 data centre will provide an additional 3,000 net technical metres (NTM) of IT space. It will also increase VIRTUS’ London portfolio to over 50MW across its four sites.

Cresswell said: “Our data centres are where the cloud lives in London, so they are in high demand from service providers and users wanting to better interconnect their applications and data across public and private clouds, and get closer to their consumers.”
