Telehouse Racks up Visibility with Online Portal

Telehouse Europe has announced the launch of an online portal for its forthcoming Telehouse West datacentre. The new portal provides a window into Telehouse Europe allowing existing and prospective customers to keep up to date with the progress of the new state-of-the-art facility, which opens in March 2010.

Using the portal interested parties will be able to: review the latest news, products and services; download industry articles; source technical information; view a diary of construction; and watch the site evolve over the coming months via a webcam. Visitors can also subscribe to a newsletter to source additional information and make specific requests via the site's online forum.

Telehouse West is the first purpose built green data centre and the first major facility to gain planning permission in London since stringent sustainability requirements were written into the City's legislation. It has been designed to save up to 1,110 tonnes of CO2 emissions per annum and transform generated waste heat into energy for the local Docklands community: the first time a heat export strategy has been introduced in the UK for this type of datacentre facility.
