e-shelter’s London Data Center, United Kingdom
The London data center market is one of the most active colocation ecosystems in the world with a strong networking, internet, and cloud infrastructure presence. London is a strategic hub for data center services for both UK organizations as well as multinational companies who have established offices there and, from both a physical and digital perspective, require reliable services to reach local customers even faster. As one of the leading data center providers in Europe, e-shelter continues to build the foundation to successfully serve this vibrant data center market today and in the future. e-shelter is constructing one of the largest data centers in Europe in Dagenham, East London. The new campus will be known as “UK London 1 Data Center” (London 1) and is capable of up to 24,000 sqm of IT space and 60MW IT load once fully developed. Phase one, with an initial 8MW IT load, is targeted for a December 2019 opening, with five further phases planned to follow.
