New data hall will meet forecast demand for several hundred further racks
Newport, South Wales, 28 November, 2013 – Next Generation Data (NGD) announced today the completion and immediate availability of a further data hall at its NGD Europe tier 3+ carrier-neutral mega-data centre in South Wales.
This is NGD’s eleventh data hall to be built within the giant 750,000 square feet facility since its opening in 2010. Capable of supporting several hundred racks in shared, caged or private configurations the new hall will meet planned demand from further corporate, government and smaller service provider organisations requiring secure, flexible and scalable facilities.
“With major customers including BT, CGI, IBM and most recently Wipro Technologies on board in custom private halls NGD has already achieved occupancy levels on a scale comparable to filling to capacity several large London Docklands area data centres,” said Simon Taylor, chairman, NGD.
“Our impressive growth rate is also being helped by the recent introduction of our channel partner strategy for accommodating the rack requirements of reseller and cloud service provider companies,” added Simon Taylor.
Purpose-designed for enabling customer racks to be easily installed and operational in a matter of hours NGD’s latest data hall features an abundant supply of power for supporting multiple high density racks and the latest cooling systems. A wide choice of high bandwidth low latency connections are available to customers along with 24/7 service monitoring, comprehensive engineering support and access to NGD’s extensive private conference meeting facilities.
NGD Europe’s significant economies-of-scale and out of town low cost base ensures the world-class 19,000 rack facility is affordable and accessible to organisations of all sizes. This allows customers a scalable and risk-free approach to moving into one of the worlds’ largest, safest and most energy efficient data centres to meet their data storage, cloud and other hosting requirements.
