Level 3 Activates New London Data Center

Level 3 Communications opened a new advanced data centre in Hayes,�West London. The facility provides enterprise customers with data centre space and access to Level 3's major fibre routes across the Atlantic and its low latency routes into the Chi-X trading platform in�Slough.

The new facility, one of Level 3's Premier Elite data centres, features high-power density cabinets and suites, 24 x 7 security and maintenance support, and will provide additional capacity to Level 3's three existing data centres in central�London�and to its more than 350 data centres worldwide.

Due to its close proximity to central�London, the new facility will offer disaster recovery, replication and redundancy facilities, and will offer customers in the region a new option for expanding or outsourcing their enterprise data centre requirements. The location was chosen in part, to help enable companies to meet disaster recovery objectives, while also being able to perform synchronous replication.
