Equinix IBX Data Centers: LD6

LD6 is a major milestone for Equinix as well as the UK digital sector. The Equinix UK flagship data center situated in London Slough was driven by escalating demand for services at the fastest-growing data center campus. The facility is our third on the London Slough campus and our sixth in the metropolitan area. Our London Slough campus has broad appeal because it houses the London Internet Exchange (LINX), one of the world's largest Internet Exchanges. It is also a virtual financial center: a quarter of European equities trades originate here. The new 86,000 square foot LD6 data center connects to two sister data centers on campus via hundreds of dark fiber links, increasing campus capacity and resilience.

Unrivaled Access to the World

With 200+ network service providers and access to a range of transatlantic cables, the London Slough campus is one of the busiest network nodes in the UK. It offers latency in the region of 30 milliseconds to New York and 4 milliseconds to Frankfurt, making it an ideal high-performance hub for cloud and content service provision. The campus build means you can have as much space and power as you need, not just now but in the future. This ease of interconnection allows you to distribute your footprint across more than one Equinix data center in the campus with no loss of performance.

Our London Slough campus houses LINX—one of the world's largest Internet exchanges with more than 480 members from over 50 countries. It is also a virtual financial center: a quarter of European equities trades originate here. Globally, more than 60% of volume-driving market makers are Equinix customers, and more than 25% of these are based in our London Slough campus.

Room to Grow

The addition of LD6 makes the Equinix London Slough campus the largest in the UK. Equinix has invested $37 million in the acquisition of its existing LD4 and LD5 campus buildings and is concurrently entered into long-term ground leases for the entire LD4, LD5 and LD6 campus with SEGRO plc. This acquisition gives Equinix effective 50-year control of one of the UK's largest, fastest-growing and most network-dense data center campuses, supporting customer continuity and future expansion. The Equinix London Slough campus provides over 36,000 square meters (388,000 square feet) of net premium colocation space interconnected by more than 1,000 diverse dark fiber link—increasing scale and resilience.


A Complete Cloud Services Ecosystem

Equinix's global footprint and network density make it easy for cloud service providers to increase target market reach and exceed performance requirements by locating infrastructure closer to customers and technology partners. As part of the London Slough campus LD6 will offer direct access to a complete cloud services ecosystem for rapid integration of services across a range of low latency, high bandwidth, high security interconnection options. Advanced hybrid cloud architectures can be seamlessly created, aggregating public and private clouds as well as legacy infrastructure.
