Interoute launches two VDC locations in the UK

09 October 2014 | Kavit Majithia


European cloud services company Interoute is to open two new Virtual Data Centres (VDC) in the UK.

The facilities – located in Slough and London’s Canary Wharf – will bring the total of Interoute’s VDC locations to ten globally.

Interoute will operate the data centres through its recent acquisition of UK group Vtesse, and the company claims it is one of the fastest growing providers in the enterprise cloud services.

“Interoute believes in being close to its customers and key markets because it brings lower latency and higher-performing solutions, straightforward compliance management and good customer service,” said Matthew Finnie, Interoute CTO. “That’s why we are investing in many zones, rather than relying on a single or limited presence to serve a continent.”

The company has launched five new VDC zones in 2014 alone, and Interoute claims its networked cloud is the fastest-growing enterprise IaaS cloud computing platform in Europe, surpassing Azure, Amazon Web Services, Google and Softlayer.

The new capabilities were deployed in less than 12 weeks.
