Qube Networks Secures Additional Data Centre Space in London

As London's data centres rapidly reach capacity; Qube Networks announces that it has secured additional prime data centre space in central London to meet increasing customer demand, and warned of the "rack and ruin" threat of data centre overload.

Recent research has shown a sharp increase in demand for co-location and managed services with many industry analysts predicting that London is about to run out of capacity. Even with the deployment of space-saving blade servers, the increased energy and cooling demands are causing severe problems for many data centre providers. Typical data centres provide around 1kW of power and cooling capabilities per rack. However, a rack of new blade servers often requires up to 15kw of power.

Qube Networks has secured an additional 1,600ft2 of capacity at the Level 3 data centre in Goswell Road to compliment its existing 4,000ft2 private suite. Qube's new suite is designed for high-density co-location and managed services, offering up to 4.5kW per cabinet as standard.
