Savvis has expanded operations in Slough, England, growing square footage to 100,000 spreading 8.88MW of power across the site’s two data centers.

“This investment marks a significant milestone in Savvis’ commitment to serve the growing infrastructure needs of the European market,” said Jeff Von Deylen, president of Savvis. “We have nearly doubled capacity in Slough to meet growing demand and give businesses in the region the services they need to grow.”

The Savvis LO5 data centre offers an initial 2.4 megawatts of IT load on 35,000 square feet of raised floor space. It is designed to support power densities in excess of 150 watts per square foot.

“The success of our existing data centre in Slough confirms that businesses view this area as a strategic geographic location,” Von Deylen said. “Our hosting portfolio in Slough allows businesses in the financial services, consumer brands and other verticals to benefit from Savvis’ carrier diversity, interconnectivity and cloud services.”

LO5 is Savvis’ fifth data centre in the London area and sixth in Europe, serving growing demand for the company’s full suite of cloud, colocation and managed-hosting services, including the recently announced Savvis Symphony Cloud Storage.

Savvis operates more than 50 data centres worldwide, with more than 2 million square feet of gross raised floor space throughout North America, Europe and Asia.
