HP ProLiant Gen8: Integrated lifecycle automation

IXEurope is to splash out around £15m to build a new datacentre in West London.

The London Stock Exchange listed datacentre outfit said that once up and running next year, the "London4" centre will be IXEurope's fourth and largest datacentre in London.

The site will offer roughly 6,500 square meters, with most of the £15m spend being shelled out over the next two years. The first floor of the new centre in West London is expected to be ready during the first half of 2007. The second floor will be kitted out to meet additional demand for space.

Said Guy Willner, chief exec of IXEurope: "We have successfully placed major anchor customers in each of the three new IXDatacentres and given the current traction of our UK operation, we are confident of a similar result when we open London4 IXDatacentre in H1 2007."

IXEurope has a number of sites across Europe in the UK, Germany, France and Switzerland and boasts some 400 customers including Merrill Lynch, Google, Network Rail and France Telecom. ®
