NetActuate has launched services from a new data centre location in London to offer increased capacity for infrastructure and boost global network performance and reliability. The firm claims the new location improves its ability to provide “high performance, flexible and reliable services”.
NetActuate’s range of network infrastructure services include virtual servers, bare metal, IP transit and its Anycast platform. It describes the latter as a way to route network traffic that “dramatically increases” the speed and reliability of data, application and content delivery to users. “With Anycast routing, one IP address becomes reachable at multiple geographic locations,” states NetActuate on its website.
The firm’s new location is connected to a global network which, says NetActuate, provides clients with access to more than 3,100 peers and over 30 additional “world class” data centres around the world.
US-based NetActuate operates 32 enterprise-class, carrier-neutral data centre locations around the world. In Europe, these include Amsterdam, Bucharest, Frankfurt and Paris, as well as two London facilities that also include Telehouse.
The new UK location is operated by Volta Data Centres in central London. It has multi-factor security with fully redundant power and cooling. The facility also has two separate 33kV supplies, plus two independent grid substations for a total incoming feed capacity of 9.6 MVA. Customers in this location can also benefit from low-latency connectivity to LINX.
