Digital Realty Opens Another Data Centre in London

Digital Realty has opened its new Digital Chessington data centre in South West London.
The Tier III facility now offers two 1,440 KW "Turn-Key Flex" data halls to lease, with three additional facilities currently in development that will bring the total capacity at the site to 7,200 KW.

The facility ensures robust power supplies from a dedicated 18MVA electricity sub-station based on-site.  Digital Realty also noted the facility provides built-in air conditioning infrastructure that can natively support both enclosed hot- or cold-aisle cooling with outside-air free-cooling.

Digital Realty said 33% of the first hall was pre-leased, indicating a healthy market demand.

  • Earlier this year, Digital Realty Trust announced plans to acquire three data centres in London from Sentrum for US$1.1 billion. The three data centres comprise approximately 70,700 m² of gross space.
