TelecityRedbus has announced a €20m (£13.5m) expansion of its European datacentre facilities.

The firm has unveiled four new facilities in London, Amsterdam and Paris, adding over 34,000 square feet of high-density and managed hosting space to its capacity.

Chief executive Mike Tobin said: “The rapid growth of web-based multimedia services and applications over the last few years, and the associated rise in demand from power and cooling capabilities required to support such applications, has vastly increased demand on datacentre facilities, and this trend is set to continue.”

In London, TelecityRedbus has completed the construction of 4,000 square feet of high-density datacentre space capable of supporting demands of up to 20kW per rack.

Another 10,000 square feet will also be added to the firm’s Docklands facility later this year.

TelecityRedbus has completed the construction of 12,000 square feet of new managed datacentre space in France and is developing an additional 8,000 square feet in Amsterdam.

Increasing demand for datacentre space prompted BT Global Services to announce a seven-year £14m investment in new London facilities earlier this month.
