Serverfarm Grows Power Capacity at its LON1 London Data Center
Available power set to almost double following infrastructure upgrade.
London – June 21, 2022 Serverfarm, the innovative data center operator and developer, is expanding its carrier-neutral LON1 data center with an additional 8MW of highly efficient IT capacity in response to strong customer demand.
Serverfarm has operated its LON1 data center since March 2018 in Feltham, a location benefitting from its proximity to Slough, Hayes, Hounslow and Park Royal and strong connectivity to all major cloud platforms.
Arun Shenoy, CMO at Serverfarm, said: “We will have 3MW of new power capacity available in the next four months, with more to come in 2023. And in true Serverfarm sustainability fashion, by building additional data center power capacity without the construction of new facilities, we are avoiding the use of unnecessary concrete, steel or glass.”
According to the Global Alliance for Buildings and Construction 2021 Global Status Report, building materials and construction account for 10% of global CO2 emissions.
