London, 20 November 2012: Cable&Wireless Worldwide (CWW) today announced the opening of a new highly efficient data centre facility. The data centre, in Uxbridge, Middlesex, has a Power Usage Efficiency (PUE) rating of 1.25, leading edge technology and a secure, resilient network infrastructure, ensuring it meets the efficiency and security concerns of enterprises in a cost-effective way.
Michelle Senecal de Fonseca, managing director, hosting at Cable&Wireless Worldwide, comments: “CIOs are now under constant pressure to respond to business demands for more agile IT. With limited skills and set against the need to reduce costs, many organisations are looking to outsource their data centre operations and make greater use of cloud services. I believe that the range of options available to our clients, through this new facility, from co-location to managed hosting, private cloud to secure storage, combined with the technical knowledge and experience of our team, will create a compelling proposition for the UK hosting market.”
Cable&Wireless Worldwide has 15+ years’ experience in managing the data of some of the world’s largest organisations from its eight data centres across the UK and Ireland. All data centres are directly connected to the secure and resilient Multi-Service Platform network, forming a core component of the secure CWW Wide Area Network.
