Data Centres - UK - May 2016
“Exponential growth in data, set to further increase with the Internet of Things; continued migration to the Cloud; advances in communication speeds; ever advancing technology in computing power; and the trend to third-party outsourcing of non-core activities can only result in growing data centre demand.”
– Terry Leggett, Senior B2B Analyst

As one of Europe’s financial centres and a gateway to the region for much transatlantic internet traffic, the UK is one of the key data centre markets in Europe. Most data centres are located in London, with Docklands the most attractive location, where the central internet exchanges LINX and LoNAP are based. Together with the Netherlands, Germany and France, Great Britain is among the top four markets in Europe and is very well connected with direct fibre connections to many different countries.
