Established in 1989, Telehouse became Europe’s first purpose-built, neutral data centre provider by opening its famous London data centre Telehouse North. Headquartered in London, UK, Telehouse has since grown to become one of the largest, global data centre providers, operating a network of 48 data centres in 24 strategic locations in the EMEA, the Americas and the Asia-Pacific region that cover all major commercial and financial hubs, meaning that you are never too far from Telehouse premium data centres.
The Telehouse London data centres have become the site for Europe’s first carrier-neutral colocation facility, the home to the London Internet Exchange (LINX), as well as a backbone for the global internet network. Today, Telehouse operates four data centres in London – three at its Docklands campus in East London consisting of Telehouse North (opened 1990), Telehouse East (opened 1999) and Telehouse West (opened 2010) as well as Telehouse Metro (opened 1997) located near Silicon Roundabout in the City of London. In 2014 we announced the construction of Telehouse North Two, taking the total to five. Together with KDDI Europe, Telehouse can provide end-to-end ICT solutions including managed services, integrated communications services, virtualisation services, content management and system security services as well as disaster recovery services on the same site.
