IBM to open London data centre this month in SoftLayer cloud services expansion
Tue 1 Jul 2014
IBM’s cloud operation, Softlayer is to invest in a new London-based data centre. The Chessington-based data centre, launching later this month, is part of the firm’s $1.2bn expansion programme which will also see new data centre builds in both Paris and Frankfurt by the end of 2014.
The site will house around 15,000 physical servers and power SoftLayer’s cloud services such as bare metal servers, virtual servers, storage and networking. It will connect through the company’s private network with all SoftLayer data centres and network PoPs (point of presence) around the world.
