It’s official – the Jubilee Line is now part of the night tube service here in London.
This is fantastic news for all users of the night tube, however we feel it will have particular resonance with those in the data centre industry. The Jubilee Line is a major arterial service for city-wide access to some of the most important London data centres, including Harbour Exchange / Equinix LD8, Global Switch and the Telehouse campus, amongst many other smaller facilities in and around the Docklands area.
More importantly, this now provides a 24-hour transport link between our London Central data centre in Bermondsey and the Docklands hub, which is perfect for users with services spanning multiple sites. No longer must engineers rely on slow and costly taxis to work on networks and systems which operate across the capital.
With our London Central data centre quickly becoming one of the city’s best alternatives to the now overcrowded, overstretched Docklands connectivity hub, this transport link will be a vital tool in speeding up out-of-hours engineering operations between sites.
At long last, the vital physical transport link that joins our private London data centre with our POPs in Docklands is finally coming to match the unrivaled dark fibre connectivity that links our facilities.
This extended nighttime service has been in operation from Friday October 7th, running on both Friday and Saturday evenings.
