euNetworks connects new London data centre
19 December 2012 | Kavit Majithia
UK-based euNetworks has connected London’s newest addition to the country’s booming data centre market.
Data centre company Volta’s newest facility will become operational in early 2013, and euNetworks will provide connectivity services to the centre.
euNetworks serves the London market with scalable bandwidth connections, and companies involved range from tech to digital businesses, in addition to media companies, internet service providers and financial services that require low latency connections.
Volta claims its facility, located in Great Sutton Street, is Central London’s most advanced and resilient data centre. The site, which is based in close proximity to the city’s Tech City, is strategically located to cater to companies in the emerging sectors.
“As a bandwidth infrastructure provider, connecting to data centres and other high bandwidth buildings in our operating cities is vital to being able to serve our customers and drive more value out of our unique city-based fibre assets,” said David Selby, VP of product and strategy at euNetworks.
Julian King, commercial director at Volta, said the development is a further sign that London’s emerging media and technology hub is attracting more investment. “As this area becomes increasingly popular, it is equally important that the infrastructure that supports and enables this developing ecosystem is readily available. Working with leading carriers like euNetworks, we are investing in providing support for London-based companies, delivering the low latency connectivity and bandwidth upon which their businesses rely so heavily.”
