Proximity Data Centres has announced the addition of a site in Swindon - an 89,000 sq ft facility that  provides capacity for up to 2000 racks.

A total of 7MW power is currently available with potential to increase to 14M, the company said. 

Proximity addded that "with excellent road and rail infrastructure and easy access to digital fibre routes connecting London to Ireland and the USA, Proximity’s latest Tier 3 facility - Proximity Edge7 - is ideally positioned to serve businesses along and near to the M4 corridor".

This includes the congested data centre conurbations of Slough and West London. It is also highly accessible to the major R&D hub at Harwell which is home to numerous research organisations in biotech, genome and space-tech. 

“Our new Swindon edge data centre offers enterprise, research, content and cloud service provider organisations a compelling proposition,” said John Hall, managing director, colocation at Proximity Data Centres.
