Telehouse Parent Company, KDDI, Supports Growing UK Tech Sector With $231 Million Investment in Mission-Critical Digital Infrastructure

Investment Into Telehouse North Two in London Docklands Data Center Campus to Enable Hybrid Services to Realize Growth for Global Business

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - July 23, 2014) - Telehouse, the global leader for data centers, international Internet exchanges and managed IT services, along with its parent company KDDI, announces that Telehouse Europe is investing $231 million in the first of a new generation of mission-critical data centers in the London's Docklands. The investment in the new data center 'North Two,' will enable businesses to take advantage of evolving global technologies, such as the Internet of Things and the IT industry shift towards Hybrid Cloud, and encourage innovation, growth and new jobs.

North Two will be built next to Europe's original data center, Telehouse North. The new facility will extend Telehouse's Docklands data center campus and represents a continued commitment by Japan's second largest carrier, KDDI. Over the last 25 years, KDDI has invested over $445 million, with $188 million being invested over the last five years alone. This new investment represents the continued diversification and expansion plans of KDDI outside of Japan and provides the high-tech infrastructure that will drive further investment in the UK's technology sector at a crucial time of growth.

"Today's announcement speaks volumes to Telehouse's commitment to ensuring our vital network ecosystems throughout the UK, the US, and around the world are consistently expanding and thriving to service the needs of our entire global digital economy," comments Satoru Manabe, President and CEO of Telehouse America.

"The $231 million investment in North Two is crucial to the expansion of one of the world's most critical Internet hubs marks a new dawn for data centers," adds Hiroyuki Soshi, Managing Director of Telehouse Europe. "We believe that as the Internet continues to develop at such a dramatic pace, the underlying infrastructure in the Docklands must stay ahead to meet the needs of the future."

UK Business Secretary Vince Cable adds, "It is good news that Japanese ICT company KDDI has decided to invest further into its global data center at the Docklands. Britain's economy is growing thanks to Japanese investment and in 2013 and 2014, KDDI was the second biggest investor into the UK starting over 100 new projects and creating 3,000 new jobs."

Telehouse's Docklands data center campus facilitates the majority of the London Internet Exchange's (LINX's) capacity, which has a huge, continuously growing proportion of all UK internet traffic flowing through it.

DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...

Companies are harnessing data in ways we once associated with science fiction. Analysts have access to a plethora of visualization and reporting tools, but considering the vast amount of data businesses collect and limitations of CPUs, end users are forced to design their structures and systems with limitations. Until now. As the cloud toolkit to analyze data has evolved, GPUs have stepped in to massively parallel SQL, visualization and machine learning.

Enterprises are adopting Kubernetes to accelerate the development and the delivery of cloud-native applications. However, sharing a Kubernetes cluster between members of the same team can be challenging. And, sharing clusters across multiple teams is even harder. Kubernetes offers several constructs to help implement segmentation and isolation. However, these primitives can be complex to understand and apply. As a result, it’s becoming common for enterprises to end up with several clusters. Thi...
