Rackspace announces new data centre for expanding UK base

19 Feb 2013 London - Cloud hoster Rackspace is working with Digital Realty Trust to bring a bigger UK data centre facility on-line to serve an expanding European customer base.

"We have hired an additional 300 UK 'Rackers' in 2012 and increased our total server count by more than 10,000 over that same past year period", stated Taylor Rhodes, Managing Director, International at Rackspace. "Our customers are aligning their IT functions to take advantage of the open Cloud and I am resolutely pleased to be able to move forward with an expanded data centre. The age of the open Cloud has arrived and our market success and subsequent expansion is testimony to that fact."

This energy-efficient data centre expansion facilitates Rackspace Hosting's leadership position as an open Cloud company, delivering open technologies worldwide. January 2013 saw an agreement signed to build up to 10-megawatts of UK data centre space with a strategic construction plan designed to bring a total of five "data halls" on-line in stages.

The UK expansion of Rackspace's open Cloud footprint is based upon leasing "wholesale" data centre space, as opposed to taking on the task of constructing its own facility premises. Rackspace has followed a similar approach to drive the wider development of its premises in Virginia, Chicago and Dallas in the USA as well as in Sydney, Australia.

Rackspace provides its renowned Fanatical Support across a broad portfolio of open standards based IT products, including Public Cloud, Private Cloud, Hybrid Hosting and Dedicated Hosting. The company's open Cloud ethos and methodology centres around customer choice, flexibility and freedom from vendor lock in.
