Tata builds new Data Centre in the UK

(27 February 2009)

Tata's new data centre in the UKTata Communications has announced plans to build a data centre, that will provide a state-of-the-art environment for supporting mission critical infrastructures, just 25 miles from London. The new 21,400 square foot data centre will be ready for service during the second quarter of 2009 and will cater for the dramatic growth in the number of UK companies looking to outsource their hosted IT operations as they look to rationalise costs and free up capital.

Increasingly, the lack of power in the City of London has seen many firms seek to move operations outside the M25 and into a managed service environment to lower their cost of ownership, improve performance and reduce downtime of their IT investment. Moreover, a shift to an Opex-based hosting model by selectively outsourcing their IT infrastructure to an experienced services provider can achieve rapid cost savings.

Tata Communications will offer its full suite of data centre services including colocation, managed hosting and managed storage services, in addition to related and complementary value-added services. The company's data centre operations and services are monitored and managed on-site and remotely, from its centralized Managed Services Operations Centre (MSOC) on a 24x7x365 basis and by a team of highly experienced technical, communications and facilities staff. The London 2 data centre will reside on Tata Communications Tier-1 IP backbone from which it can provide high capacity Internet, MPLS and Ethernet services globally.

"Tata Communications has seen a rapid increase in demand for managed IT infrastructure services in the EMEA region, driven in part by rationalising IT budgets and companies looking to outsource their data centre operations and achieve greater cost and resource efficiencies," said Abid Qadiri, Vice President of Data Centre Services for Tata Communications. "As the availability of highly secure Tier-3 data centre space is limited, we are pleased to bring this state-of-the-art facility to the market."

Located 25 miles from London, the highly secure data centre facility was built by Digital Realty Trust, the world's largest wholesale data centre provider, and contains two individually segregated, maintainable data halls that receive six megawatts of power from diversely routed supplies. As Tata Communications third data centre opened in the UK, London 2 brings the company's total data centre footprint in the region to over 50,000 square feet. The company owns and operates data centres on three continents totalling nearly one million square feet of space.

On February 12, Tata Communications' announced plans to invest USD $180 million in development of data centre and associated services in Singapore, scheduled to open in 2010. The addition of London 2 and the Singapore data centre are part of the global expansion to address demands of enterprise customers worldwide, while supporting Tata Communications' commitment to invest more than $2 billion to further fuel global expansion plans.
