About this report

 

London is a major global center for commerce and industry. As such, it attracts investment across a range of industries, including intensely IT dependent sectors such as financial services, e-commerce and internet media. This has resulted in significant data center investment in the greater London area, particularly since certain applications are latency sensitive and proximity can be a critical requirement for some end-users.

London is a major global center for commerce and industry. As such, it attracts investment across a range of industries, including intensely IT dependent sectors such as financial services, e-commerce and internet media. This has resulted in significant data center investment in the greater London area, particularly since certain applications are latency sensitive and proximity can be a critical requirement for some end-users.

As a result, London has developed into one of the largest data center hubs in the world. One in every three data centers in the UK is in London and the UK is arguably the largest data center market in Europe and the third largest in the world.

This DCD Intelligence report, published under the Data Center Trends & Analysis research service, contains answers to the following questions in addition to others:

  • How much power do London data centers consume? How is London power consumption expected to grow over the next 3 years?
  • Where does London rank vis-a-vis other data center hub cities?
  • How has London’s data center power consumption evolved over the past 5 years?
  • How has London white space evolved?
  • What are the primary investment drivers of hub cities including London last year?
  • How is London IT capacity allocated? 
  • How old are data centers in London compared to those elsewhere in the United Kingdom and other major markets?

The information and analysis in the Metropolitan Hub Series: London report are based on DCD’s annual data center census samples from 2011 to 2014 conducted among end-users, service providers and vendors in London and other relevant markets.
