Scheduled to launch in October 2013, the 20,000 sq ft facility will have 9,300 sq ft of data center space with provision for 120 racks, significantly expanding Tsohost’s existing network and underpin the provider’s growth.
Adam Smith, Tsohost technical director, said the company was experiensing rapid growth, and building its own data center was a logical next step. “We have been planning this since 2012 and, when the ideal location on the Slough Trading Estate came up, with ample connectivity and power, it was the perfect opportunity,” he said.
“This investment gives us complete control over our environment allowing us to continue offering the uptime and performance our customers have come to expect.”
The facility is located in close proximity to available power, fibre connectivity and key PoPs, including Equinix LD5. It has a dedicated dark fibre ring of about 150km interconnecting it with Equinix LD5 and Telehouse Docklands.
