Slough is one of the top three most productive towns in the UK outside of London and  home to some well  known business including Amazon, Honda, Research in Motion, O2 and Mars. In 2008 Savvis opened their L01 data center and demand was high from day one. Within 18 months the first floor sold out and Savvis expanded the data center in 2010.

In what has become Europe's biggest trading business park Savvis is expanding yet again , opening their second Slough data center, Savvis LO5.  The addition doubles capacity across the two Slough data centers and raised floor space by a third. Savvis says it wants to give businesses in the European market access to the best experience possible.

Jeff Von Deylen, president of Savvis says: 

The success of our existing data center in Slough confirms that businesses view this area as a strategic geographic location, Our hosting portfolio in Slough allows businesses in the financial services, consumer brands and other verticals to benefit from Savvis' carrier diversity, inter-connectivity and cloud services. 

LO5 is Savvis' fifth data center in the London area and sixth in Europe, serving growing demand for the company's full suite of cloud, collocation and managed-hosting services, including the recently announced Savvis Symphony Cloud Storage.

Savvis operates more than 50 data centers worldwide, with more than 2 million square feet of gross raised floor space throughout North America, Europe and Asia.
