London Data Centres and Colocation

FinTech Capital and Hub for Big Data

London, often referred to as the tech capital of Europe, and one of the world's largest data centre markets, is also a thriving centre for software development, and already diving into the acceleration of the IoT. Renowned London business accelerator Startupbootcamp announced in March 2016, a new 'Internet of Things' programme (for the development of objects that connect to the internet). When you’re searching for the right data infrastructure, it’s important to consider the advantages of the right interconnected community. See how our Digital Docklands campus can to help drive your digital ambitions.

The city's booming start-up scene is considered a magnet for tech entrepreneurs looking to do business in the European Union and a global launch pad for firms aiming to compete with American and Asian web giants, according to the Economic Times, with half of the founders of London's top tech start-ups actually coming from outside Britain.
