Vancouver-based PEER 1 Hosting has opened up a new 17,600 square metre green data centre in Portsmouth, U.K.

According to Peer 1, the facility in Langstone Technology Park offers businesses across London and the South East scalable managed hosting, dedicated hosting and co-location services.

The centre has 11MVA of available power, room for 20,000 servers, and provides a direct connection to PEER 1 Hosting’s 10Gb FastFiber Network.

The facility is located in one of the most energy-efficient buildings of its type in the U.K. For every one unit of power used for computer equipment, only one unit is used to power other areas, such as cooling. The industry average is 1:8, Peer 1 said.
