Backbone Connect One of the leading U.K managed networks and colocation providers; today has announced the second phase of its Slough colocation data centre is now ready for occupancy. The second phase releases a further 250 colocation racks to help businesses lower colocation costs and move out of the crowded London colocation market.
"We're incredibly excited to bring this second phase of our Slough data centre to market," says David McLeod, director of marketing at Backbone Connect. "We've seen increasing prices within the London colocation market ever since we've been in business, and I can't foresee that situation changing anytime soon. With affordable and high-speed low latency connectivity everywhere these days, there's simply no longer any reason to stay in central London. We've found that by helping businesses move just 25 miles outside of the city, we are able to save them up to 30% of their London colocation costs."
Located in Byfleet surrey the state of the art Tier III carrier neutral facility provides high density rack space and colocation services. Special considerations were taken for the location of the data center which strategically located out of central London.
The location not only provides high security for businesses and protection from any targeted terrorist threats the city may have but also the benefits of being on the main transport links for national and international clients wishing to get to central london. “We chose the location for the many benefits slough data centre which could help our risk averse clients chose a location where london would be accessible to clients but their data out of the main zone that could provide the low risk of natural disasters, such as earthquakes or any terrorist attacks which the city had back in 2007 – Its also perfect for our international clients as it is close to Heathrow international for clients wishing to fly into london”,
