International publication Data Economy recently published an article examining a newly completed data center buildout by Instor, in London, for Digital. From the article:
Digital Realty Expands London Data Center Power Capacity
Demand from global cloud provider sees one of the UK’s largest data centres power capacity expanded.
One of the largest colocation companies in the UK has started works to increase power capacity at one of London’s largest hubs.
Digital Realty’s 200,000 sqf data centre in Woking is getting an extra 2MW requested by a global cloud provider.
The job has been commissioned to California-based data centre infrastructure provider Instor Solutions.
The expansion includes the installation of 225 cabinets and the accompanying infrastructure necessary to support the company’s mission critical operations.
The buildout also encompassed a variety of tasks including designing and installing structured cabling, installation of custom tapcans and RPPs, and implementing cold aisle containment solutions.
Jack Vonich, Vice President of Sales and Marketing, Instor, said: “Instor is ecstatic with its continued growth in the European market, highlighted by completing this recent London buildout.
“Typically, the complexities involved with the expansion of data centre capacity to areas outside of the United States often lead to construction delays and increased expenses.
“Instor is well-positioned to help companies reduce their international risk as they are expanding their critical infrastructure overseas through a seamless process which cuts capital expenditures and has been proven to significantly accelerate time-to-completion.”
