industry news Virtus Data Centres unveils plans for London’s largest data centre campus Virtus Data Centres has announced plans for two new adjacent facilities on a single campus near Stockley Park, West London. The new site will be amongst the most advanced in the UK and create London’s largest data centre campus. The two buildings, on the secure eight- acre campus, total 34,475m2. Known as Virtus LONDON5 and LONDON6, they are designed to deliver 40MW of IT load and have the secured power capacity to increase to 110MVA of incoming power from diverse grid connection points, future proofing expansion for customers. The location of the campus is ideally situated: 16 miles from central London on the main fibre routes from London to Slough, and seven miles from Slough, thus providing unrivalled hyper efficient, limitless metro fibre connected, flexible and massively scalable data centre space, within the M25. Work has started to fit out space in LONDON5 for customers who have already committed and general availability is expected in early 2018. These two new data centres will provide an additional 17,000NTM (net technical metres) of IT space and will increase Virtus’ portfolio in London to approximately 100MW across its six facilities in Slough, Hayes and Enfield, with the power to expand to circa 150M \)ѡمɥ̸͕́)ȁѡȁɵѥ٥ͥ)ܹ٥̹) ѡ)Qqф ɔ tЁ)եЁѼ啐Ʌѥ)ф ɔ٥ɽ̸+ + + + )%P%9IMQIU QUI)QL%PɅљɴ)ɥхѕ єɽ)Mѕѽɥ)%ѕЁݕȁɅ)M=Q]IMIY% L)ܹɥхլ
