Frankfurt Two has come a long way since our last construction update! Back in December, the site was dominated by an incomplete concrete frame and we had only just started constructing the second floor. Six months on, we have completed construction of the 5-storey, purpose-built data centre and it is already under partial occupancy!
Zenium Announces London Three
Situated on the Slough Trading Estate, a premier data center location in the UK and owned by SEGRO, London Three will offer 3,670 sq m of world-class technical space with an IT load of 9MW. Each data suite will be customised to meet client specifications and will offer industry-leading energy efficiencies including the latest adiabatic cooling technology and low PUE’s. London Three will also provide multi-layer security, carrier neutrality with diverse routes and a Tier III+ level of resilience.
“We are determined to increase the supply of premium data centre space sought by cloud providers, systems integrators and multinational corporations in this key international business hub,” said Franek Sodzawiczny, Founder and CEO at Zenium.
“Over 70% of power across the current Zenium portfolio is consumed by two returning customers which demonstrates the strength of the business relationships we develop. It also highlights their preference to secure the same level of service and state-of-the-art infrastructure from the same trusted provider in multiple locations.”
London continues to be Europe’s main data centre destination, with a 38% market share (1). In spite of the high cost of constructing data centers in the city (2) and any uncertainty about Brexit, there has be no reduction in demand for additional capacity in this region.
The addition of London Three to the portfolio extends the total data centre technical space offered by Zenium in the UK to over 15,100 sq m with a combined IT power of 31.62MW. The data center will be ready for Zenium to commence fit-out of the data halls in the fourth quarter of 2018. The facility will be operational, and ready for occupation, in 2019.
