IONOS and Fasthosts open new data centre in Worcester

IONOS, Europe’s largest hosting services provider, and Fasthosts, its UK subsidiary, have opened a state-of-the-art data centre situated at Worcester Six Business Park.
The 43,708 sq ft unit comprises a cutting-edge 30,729 sq ft data centre and 12,978 sq ft of ancillary offices.

The data centre represents a £21M investment in the local Worcester community. It has been designed with a modular approach, with each module at the site fully independent and, technically speaking, a data centre in its own right. This provides the opportunity for expansion with three extra modules to support future growth.
Sustainability is at the forefront of the data centre, with a wide range of sustainable and energy-efficient features, including solar photovoltaic panels covering up to 10% of the energy use at the site. All necessary carbon used for the construction of the building envelope has been compensated.

Designed and constructed to a Tier IV standard, the data centre is connected to the middle of the UK’s fibre figure of eight, linking the site directly to IONOS’ backbone network with an outside capacity of 3,000 Gigabit per second. This strong fibre optic connectivity will help drive the latest technology in the region to support business growth, all whilst operating securely and sustainably.
