Digital Realty Opens New London Data Centre
Digital Realty Trust (NYSE: DLR), a leading global provider of data centre solutions, has announced the opening of the first two facilities at its new Digital Chessington data centre in South West London. Two 1,440 KW Turn-Key Flex(SM) data halls are now available to lease, with three additional facilities currently in development that will bring the total capacity at the site to 7,200 KW.
Digital Chessington offers modern, purpose-built tier three data centre space in the London area, with strong communications links to the city centre via a range of diverse carrier options. The development benefits from high-capacity, robust power supplies from a dedicated 18MVA electricity sub-station based on-site.
The Digital Chessington facility reflects the latest advancements in efficient data centre design, enabling very effective power utilisation efficiency (PUE), while supporting a flexible approach to customers' data centre operations. The facilities' built-in air conditioning infrastructure can natively support both enclosed hot- or cold-aisle cooling that uses outside-air free-cooling for greater power efficiency, as well as an open architecture-based cooling approach.
As a brand-new development, Digital Chessington has been designed to fulfill the practical requirements of enterprise data centre users. The site currently contains three floors of office space, and each data hall benefits from ample staging workspace for technical operations, with lift access and power and cooling facilities throughout.
"Our new Digital Chessington facility is the result of years of experience in data centre design and construction gained across our global operations," said Adam Levine, Vice President, Sales at Digital Realty. "Digital Chessington is ideal for organisations looking for high-quality, dedicated data centre space with excellent fiber connectivity to central London.
