Consistent demand for phase one of data hall space at London2, which opened in December 2014, is driving the build out of London2’s phase two expansion ahead of schedule. Development of London2’s phase two has already begun and will initially deliver a further 3MW-plus of IT load. On completion of phase two, two thirds of the UTI Tier 3 certified, BREEAM Excellent London2 site will be complete and available for client use.
Virtus’ new customer wins include companies specialising in cloud technology, secure hosting, professional services and education; as well as the finance industry and a mining company, further building out Virtus’ cloud, financial and utilities communities. In addition, Virtus has also announced the extension of three existing managed hosting providers from Enfield based London1 into its Hayes London2 data centre.
Darren Watkins, managing director, Virtus, said, ‘Following unprecedented customer demand for space in London2 phase one, Virtus has again partnered with Bouygues Energies and Services to build out the second phase of London2. We’re delighted to announce these new wins at Virtus Data Centre sites in London.
‘Given the success achieved by London2 in the short amount of time it’s been open for business, we‘re excited about what this means as we enter the second half of 2015.’
