Custodian Data Centres expands network to offer hybrid cloud solutions


Custodian Data Centres, a data centre and network services provider, has announced that it has expanded its dark fibre routes into Digital Realty Sovereign House, Telecity Meridian Gate and Global Switch 2 (GS2) in London.

The new connections into London will mean the Kent-based data centre will be able to offer hybrid cloud solutions to its clients with connections into major providers including Google, Amazon and Microsoft. This further increases Custodian Data Centres ability to connect clients directly to almost anywhere in the world, with existing dark fibre routes into Telehouse North and Level 3 Goswell Road.

As Robert Williams, technical director, explains, “The continuous expansion of Custodian’s network infrastructure is always driven by customer demand. Expanding our network into a new location is always a significant investment, but adding several new sites to our ‘on-net’ dark fibre infrastructure enables us to rapidly deliver new services to these locations.

Consequently, it then enables our customers to pick up connections quickly and easily to the services they need the most, without having to pull together multiple providers and separate contracts. If a customer needs a connection to their chosen cloud provider, it can now be simply delivered directly into their rack in Maidstone immediately.”

Custodian Data Centres recently invested £4 million into opening a series of data rooms at its Kent facility. Availability for more than 1000 racks with diverse ‘A’ & ‘B’ feeds able to draw up to 64Amps have been made to ensure they remain the South East’s independent, reliable and flexible data centre operator.
