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.

In the midst of the widespread popularity and adoption of cloud computing, it seems like everything is being offered “as a Service” these days: Infrastructure? Check. Platform? You bet. Software? Absolutely. Toaster? It’s only a matter of time. With service providers positioning vastly differing offerings under a generic “cloud” umbrella, it’s all too easy to get confused about what’s actually being offered.
