London expected to break the 400MW supply barrier in 2017

London, Europe’s foremost colocation centre, is expected to surpass the 400MW supply milestone for the first time in 2017, according to the latest European Data Centre Marketview report from CBRE. This will make London the first European city to break through this barrier, as we head out of what has been a record-breaking Q3 of this year.

Total data centre supply across the ‘big four’ FLAP markets (Frankfurt, London, Amsterdam and Paris) has now reached 879MW, after a 20MW supply increase over Q3 2016. As an impressive indicator of growth here in the UK, 13MW of this 20MW total comes from London alone.

A big driver behind the growth in London is the opening of Telehouse North Two, which launches this winter. The Netwise Hosting team will be in attendance of the official launch event as we continue to build out our presence in Telehouse North and the campus as a whole.

Our London Central data centre continues to welcome new tenants as we head into 2017, as well as facilitating the impressive growth of our existing customers as they expand. We have additional pods coming online in the new year, which will ensure we meet ever-growing demand and operate as Central London’s leading independent data centre service provider.
