London, United Kingdom, 13 October 2020 –The construction of LONDON11 will add more than 13MW of new capacity within 5,500m2 of net technical space to VIRTUS’ inventory in this highly desirable location. With the opening of LONDON11, the VIRTUS Slough campus will provide a total of over 77.5MW of power and 32,150m2 of net technical space to VIRTUS’ expanding customer base. LONDON11 will go live in November 2022, with the data centre offering flexible and scalable colocation provision to hyperscale and enterprise customers. Furthermore, VIRTUS is seeing significant interest in this new data centre with reservations already being placed.

Neil Cresswell, CEO of VIRTUS Data Centres commented:

The start of building LONDON11 is a significant milestone in a busy year for VIRTUS. Throughout the COVID-19 epidemic our focus on operational excellence has enabled us to provide safe, reliable service to our valued customers, from our five live data centres, whilst also safely bringing two additional new data centres live in the past six months. An additional three sites are scheduled to go live in the next 12 months, followed by LONDON11 in 2022. We continue to see increasing demand for quality colocation at scale in the London data centre market - driven by remote working, accelerating digital transformation and Brexit, amongst other factors. We have worked hard in the last five years to provide this continuous runway of state-of-the-art, well connected data centres - in key UK locations where there is limited supply - stretching out years into the future, and with the backing of STT GDC, we will continue to support our customers as they scale and grow.
