This new phase further supports businesses expanding in the UK, providing customers with the critical IT infrastructure required to gain competitive advantage.
With £26m of capital investment, the second phase of LD6 will add 1,385 cabinets, bringing the total operational capacity of the data centre to 2,770 cabinets. This expansion is also an indicator of Equinix’s continued commitment to the UK, where demand for data centres and colocation services in the cloud, enterprise and financial services sectors continues to grow.
Russell Poole, managing director UK, Equinix, commented, ‘As one of the most pivotal connection points in the world, London continues to play a significant role in facilitating the flow of data that supports the digital economy. With the completion of the second phase of LD6, Equinix will bring to market more opportunity for interconnection to connect companies to their customers, employees and partners and to ultimately accelerate their business performance.’
