Why choose colocation hosting in London

The Telehouse London data centres have become the site for Europe's first carrier-neutral colocation facility, the home to the London Internet Exchange (LINX), as well as a backbone for the global internet network.

Why choose Telehouse London data centres

Today, Telehouse operates five data centres in London. The main Docklands campus in East London consists of Telehouse North, Telehouse East, Telehouse West and Telehouse North Two. In 2022, we opened a fifth data centre, Telehouse South, located in Blackwall Yard, just 300 metres away from the main campus.

Together with KDDI Europe, Telehouse can provide end-to-end ICT solutions including managed services, integrated communications services, virtualisation services, content management and system security services as well as disaster recovery services on the same site.

Telehouse has won the Colocation Supplier of the Year Award at the 2021 DCS Awards, scooping the top spot above competitors including Pulsant, Iron Mountain Data Centres and Vantage Data Centres. DCS awards

Internet hub

Telehouse London data centres are known as the UK’s foremost Internet Hub and Backbone for the Global Internet Network. The Docklands data centre campus already facilitates the majority of the London Internet Exchange’s (LINX’s) capacity, which has such a huge proportion of all UK internet traffic flowing through it and this is set to grow. Due to its importance to the Global Internet Network, Telehouse London was featured in the video: “There and Back Again: A Packet’s Tale – How does the Internet work?” from the World Science Festival (2013), please see video on the right.

Connectivity solutions

When Telehouse North was opened in 1990, there were only 2 carriers available. Today Telehouse London data centre customers can connect to over 1000 carriers, ISPs and ASPs which can be interconnected to any of the buildings via dark fiber. The close proximity to the City and Canary Wharf makes Telehouse the best low latency point, ideal for trading exchanges and mission-critical applications.

Power efficiency

Telehouse is the only company in the UK that operates an on-site private dual primary substation (N+N) connected at 132kV to supplier authority lines. The substation is located at its London Docklands campus and encompasses a total capacity of 50MVA with cooling and two 132kV power lines directly connected to the National Grid reducing transmission losses. As power and electrical shortages have been an increasing concern in London, the primary substation future-proofs the Telehouse London data centre campus and secures enough power to serve its fast-growing customer base.

Security and access

Telehouse London data centres meet the highest levels of building security, including constant security by trained security staff 24/7, electronic access management, proximity access control systems and CCTV. All London customers are offered a 24/7 support function and access to their IT equipment at any time 24/7, 365 days a year.
