Kao Data, a provider of advanced, hyperscale-inspired data centres for the UK’s Innovation Corridor, has announced a dedicated ‘Built-to-Suit’ service for the hyperscale community in the UK. The service enables Kao Data to fund, design, build and operate Open Compute Project (OCP-Ready) data centre capacity, for organisations dependent on scalable, resilient, digital infrastructure.
With financial backing from one of the UK’s largest investors, the new ‘Built-to-Suit’ service enables Kao Data to offer attractive, low cost financial terms for hyperscale cloud service providers looking to fund and rapidly develop new data centre capacity around London’s perimeter. As part of the service, Kao Data’s leadership team will oversee all developments, enabling clients to benefit from the guidance, insight and expertise of award-winning industry professionals who are well positioned to manage the challenges of industrial scale data centre construction projects.
“Our Built-to-Suit model presents a significant opportunity for hyperscale providers, removing many of the financial, contractual, logistical and technical complexities often experienced on large data centre builds,” said Paul Finch, Interim CEO and COO, Kao Data. “By working with Kao Data’s established team of engineering and operational specialists, hyperscalers can significantly shorten the development and build cycle of their future data centre deployments.”
