There is completion of new south London facility by the Pulsant who is the host and also the provider of the datacenter company.
The 8,400 sq m site is in Croydon, and represents a three year, £14m investment by the vendor. The company has continued to build out its Croydon site, despite the riots that affected the town last year. However, the company said that the site is equipped with cutting edge physical and virtual security measures.
Pulsant said and exclaimed that its site, Pulsant South London that will hold up high density rack environments. Matt Lovell who is the CEO of Pulsant said, “The new centre can support higher power loads than most businesses’ internal data rooms can accommodate, or indeed most central London datacenters”
He also stated, “Most datacentres in inner London can’t support the power loads businesses need for high-density IT applications, such as big data, We are now commonly seeing rack power requests between seven and 14kW per rack and envisage this will become commonplace over the next 12 months. We are also starting to see even higher requests, of even 20 to 30kW, and we will have to design future phases of South London to support these higher density requirements. The site will offer 1,680 racks when it reaches full capacity.”
Pulsant also added, “We can’t influence the kilowatt hour charges, which can only go in one direction,” said Lovell. “But we are looking to help customers migrate from internal IT … to an environment that supports higher densities. We’ve seen with events such as the Olympics that customers need to be able to reach their data, with a 30 minute travel time being the target. Croydon is well connected.”
