The expansion to Savvis' operations in Slough, England, boosts the site's total square footage to 100,000, spreading 8.88 megawatts of power across the site's two data centres.

"This investment marks a significant milestone in Savvis' commitment to serve the growing infrastructure needs of the European market," said Jeff Von Deylen, president of Savvis.

"Our hosting portfolio in Slough allows businesses in the financial services, consumer brands and other verticals to benefit from Savvis' carrier diversity, interconnectivity and cloud services."

LO5 is Savvis' fifth data centre in the London area and sixth in Europe, serving growing demand for the company's full suite of cloud, colocation and managed-hosting services, including the recently announced Savvis Symphony Cloud Storage.
