The data centre is part of a twin facility located across Hayes and Slough, and houses the new T-Systems Dynamic Cloud Platform.
Global ICT service provider, T-Systems has opened a data centre in Hayes, West London, to twin with its existing facility in Slough, England. With a scalable architecture designed to grow to hyper-scale, the hub is one of four which the company operates in the United Kingdom.
The launch coincides with the debut of the group’s new Enterprise Private Cloud platform in said market. The first customer will start to move to said location in December. The centres housing the platform offer high-level intrinsic availability and are combined using a DWDM ring.
The above allocation provides low-latency and high-bandwidth networking between the two data centres. Equipped with all the common carriers, the provision affords clear access both to and between the two sites. The features allow services to be shared easily across the locations.
Adding dual-site storage and virtual machine architecture, the platform provides firm disaster tolerant services, network, data access, and security access control and management. Led by SAP HANA, it responds to the market for an agile cloud solution which meets local demand.
“The opening of the new data centre and expansion of our services gives our customers a choice about the location of their data centre, whether to run their services in the UK or Germany. It also positions us as a leading cloud service provider,” said Christoph Rode, MD of T-Systems.
