£20 investment for enterprise cloud computing and IT infrastructure services
Savvis, a provider of cloud infrastructure and hosted IT offerings, has announced £20 expansion of its Slough data centre in the UK.
The company said that the development is expected to meet growing European demand for its cloud computing and IT infrastructure services and also comes in anticipation of the Symphony Virtual Private Data Centre (VPDC) launch in Europe later this year.
The new facility will be expanded by 20,000sqft of saleable data centre space. The development will be completed in September 2010 and will result in a total of 43,000 square feet of saleable data centre floor space, Savvis said.
According to Savvis, the Slough facility currently offers Symphony Open, its public cloud offering, which is the second cloud offering available from the Slough data centre.
In addition, Savvis offers proximity hosting for the financial community. The full suite of Symphony offerings, including VPDC, is expected to be available in the UK in the third quarter of this year through the company’s data centre in Slough.
Brian Klingbeil, managing director EMEA for Savvis, said: Following a rise in enterprise adoption of managed hosting services in Europe, we are now experiencing increasing demand for both private and public cloud infrastructure services. From our highly secure data centre in Slough, European customers can access some of the industry’s highest levels of IT infrastructure flexibility.”
