Savvis Expands UK Data Centre

Web and cloud hosting provider, Savvis plans to meet growing demand for European cloud computing and IT infrastructure by expanding its UK data centre.

Savvis said that the 20 million pounds Sterling ($30.3M USD) expansion of its Slough data centre in the UK precedes the Savvis Symphony Virtual Private Data Centre (VPDC) launch in Europe later this year. Savvis Symphony Open, its public cloud solution, is currently being offered in addition to managed and virtualised hosting, private cloud, and network services.

The Slough facility will be an ISO 27001 accredited facility and the planned 20,000 square feet expansion is expected to be completed by September 2010. Approximately 43,000 square feet of saleable data centre floor space will be the end result of this expansion.

Brian Klingbeil, managing director EMEA for Savvis outlines the necessity of the data centre enhancement: “Following a rise in enterprise adoption of managed hosting services in Europe, we are now experiencing increasing demand for both private and public cloud infrastructure services. From our highly secure data centre in Slough, European customers can access some of the industry’s highest levels of IT infrastructure flexibility – from colocation and managed hosting to cloud computing and network services. This breadth and depth of solutions continues to attract enterprise customers into our Slough facility.”

Globally Savvis maintains more than 1.4 million square feet of raised floor space through its 28 data centres including three in the UK. Savvis said the Slough facility expansion is one of four worldwide scheduled for completion in 2010.
