Leaseweb UK, a leading hosting and cloud services company, has announced the official opening of a new data centre facility in Slough, Berkshire to expand its service offering in the UK. Leaseweb currently has a capacity of 200KW and will service new, as well as existing customers hosted at its LON-11 and LON-12 facilities in central London.
The new facility is the third addition to Leaseweb’s data centre locations in the UK and is undertaken in partnership with storage and information management services company, Iron Mountain, which acquired Leaseweb’s sister company, EvoSwitch, in 2018. In joining an important UK connectivity hub in the home counties, Leaseweb UK will offer competitively priced colocation services to a wider customer base and expanded disaster recovery (DR) services to existing customers including service management software specialist, TOPdesk.
The growth in adoption of data-driven strategies to derive business value has led to increased demand for as-a-service offerings such as those provided by Leaseweb UK.
Eltjo Hofstee, Managing Director of Leaseweb UK, said: “Leaseweb’s expertise in these areas puts us in a strong position to leverage this trend and help businesses position their workloads based on their needs, from colocation to dedicated servers, or to being a hybrid cloud service partner. Adding a facility in Slough enables us to tap into one of the biggest connectivity hubs in the UK outside of London, therefore enhancing our ability to deliver according to these needs.”
