Global Switch London East is located, together with London North, in the heart of the connectivity rich London’s Docklands, one of the most network dense locations in the world. These two data centers provide 90,000 sq. m of space and the ability to provide bespoke power deployments in excess of 2,000 W/sq. m.
The Sydney location consists of Sydney East and Sydney West, located at 400 Harris Street Ultimo, Sydney NSW 2007. These data centers span 73,000 sq. m of dedicated technical space supported by multiple exchanges and four geographically diverse building entry points.
These PoPs are in close proximity to global central business districts in Tier 1 markets and will provide enterprises and residential IP providers in Amsterdam, London, and Sydney with improved fault tolerance, load balancing and congestion management in the delivery of next generation IP connectivity services.
