Creating Value Through Digital Infrastructure Development

The explosive growth of cloud computing is driving ever increasing demand for data centre capacity. This is forecast to grow exponentially over the coming years, fueled by the rapid adoption of artificial intelligence, machine learning and autonomous vehicles, all making the need for the rapid development of quality data centre capacity essential.

This is no more apparent than in London, where expenditure on data centre infrastructure looks set to continue unabated in the ‘new normal’. London prevails despite economic turbulence, as investment is pouring into the UK capital and there are significant post-industrial regeneration opportunities in the East of London.

Infinity London East provides a data centre campus that comprises a fully powered site, capable of supporting 40MW of IT load and sits alongside major fibre routes from multiple carriers linking it to key internet hubs in the UK and the rest of Europe to provide low latency connectivity.

Digital transformation is driving change at a rapid pace and the East of London continues to attract more investment. Infinity London East is perfectly located to become a new hub for today’s innovative digital infrastructure.
