Kao Data announced the launch of the 16 MW carrier-neutral data center in Slough, West London.
The data center operator said that the launch comes after £130 million in funding from global infrastructure company Infratil Limited and anticipated to expand Kao Data’s sustainable data center colocation platform into the globally exceptional data center hub.
The building of the new Slough data center is said to be in progress and will adhere to the high-performance architecture, efficacy, operational blueprint of Kao Data’s data center in Harlow while providing an SLA-backed PUE of less than 1.2 even at partial loads.
Additionally, the Slough data center will be powered by 100 percent renewable energy, and also the power backup generators will be fueled with the help of hydrotreated vegetable oil (HVO).
Kao Data’s Chief Executive Officer, Lee Myall said that the Slough data center launch will offer data-intensive enterprises within the West London Availability Zone to leverage working collectively with Kao Data’s award-winning, sustainable infrastructure and expert technical and operations teams.
Mr. Myall says with the launch of Kao Data’s new Slough data center, they are more than thrilled to tighten its data center footprint across the UK and set itself as the world’s second-largest data center hub.
He further added in the past year the company has observed incredible growth and the new data center launch in Slough is their next step in continuing the progress.
Kao Data has a distinct client base for several huge industries like Financial Services, Health Sciences, Defense, Artificial Intelligence, and the Cloud and plans to expand its offerings to current colocation clients.
Last but not the least, Kao data claims that it will set new sustainability benchmarks with 100 percent renewable energy, renewable HVO fuel backup generators, and ultra-low PUE power and cooling systems.
