Yondr Group, the global developer, owner operator and provider of data centre services, has confirmed plans to develop the largest data centre in the hotspot of Slough, west of London.
The town is host to various data centres and is a key data management location for enterprises and service providers in London and the south-east. It is also a key network hub for the rest of the country and organisations abroad.
The initial phase of the new project will see the development of a 30MW facility, which is expected to be ready for service by the first quarter of 2023. The data centre campus will have a total capacity of 100MW when fully developed.
Yondr recently announced a $2 billion investment to expand its operations into the Americas, with the acquisition of 270 acres of prime real estate in Northern Virginia, and a $1 billion joint venture partnership with the Everstone Group, to develop and operate data centres in India.
“The M4 corridor connects London to the heart of Britain and is home to some of the world's leading organisations,” said Paul Hood, managing director of operations for EMEA at Yondr Group. “Being located in Slough will allow us to serve our clients in the most sought after metro network area in the UK.”
