VIRTUS Data Centres has unveiled some new expansion plans for its UK data center footprint. They will be refitting two adjacent buildings in Stockley Park, which lies 6 miles from London and 7 miles from Slough, and launching them as LONDON5 and LONDON6.
Combined the two buildings will add some 34,475 square meters, or 371K square feet, and 40MW of IT load to VIRTUS's footprint. According to VIRTUS, the new campus will be the UK's largest. Work has started on the first of the two buildings, which should be available early next year.
VIRTUS is also currently working on building out LONDON3 for a launch next summer, which will be next to LONDON4 in Slough which they brought into the fold earlier by acquiring a facility from Infinity Data Centers. The company is part of ST Telemedia's GDC group, which also operates data centers in India, China, and of course Singapore.
