- Well established facility opened in 2000
- Believed mostly fully occupied
Because of its age power per cabinet or square foot will be light by today’s standards and overall, the site is believed to be at or close to its operational capacity. Clients include a number of hosting and managed services companies.
Now known as Equinix LD2 this site was originally built by IXEurope and known as Heathrow Hub. It opened in 2000 at the peak of the dot-com boom and at a time when the whole London colocation industry appeared to be moving en masse over to West London (for example both Digiplex and City Reach had also just built facilities the other side of the M4 in Hayes, whilst Telecity had signed the lease for what was to become in 10 years time Powergate in Park Royal). As the dot-com crash followed so this site appeared to have been left by the receding tide. For some time therefore network choice was quite limited and client numbers relatively low, but IXEurope survived, went public in 2006 and the facility began to make real progress. Indeed the growing need for facilities diverse of the Docklands and central London for disaster recovery projects suited it perfectly.
In terms of fit out the site was originally opened in 2000 so power densities will be light by current standards. The fit out is a two floor structure within the shell of a light industrial shed. The facility is located yards from the entrance to Heathrow Airport on the Bath Road.
