Digital Realty has acquired a colocation data centre campus in Slough for $200 million.

The move is part of Digital Realty’s strategic entry into the west London market, complementing its existing locations in the City and Docklands.

Located in the Slough Trading Estate, the newly acquired campus consists of two data centres with a total capacity of 15 MW. It currently serves over 150 customers, including connectivity providers, technology firms, and financial services companies.

The Slough data centre campus will operate entirely on renewable energy, supporting the company’s objective to match 100% of its European operations’ energy consumption with renewable sources.

Séamus Dunne, Managing Director, Digital Realty in the United Kingdom (UK) and Ireland, commented on the acquisition, “This expansion into Slough is a significant step for Digital Realty, reinforcing our commitment to supporting digital transformation in the UK and across Europe. As the UK solidifies its position as Europe’s premier technology hub, this acquisition enhances our ability to support customers as they grow and scale, further establishing our presence in this vital market.”

The Slough campus will integrate into Digital Realty’s existing Metro Connect, which links its six Greater London campuses. Customers will benefit from access to ServiceFabric, Digital Realty’s interconnection and orchestration platform.
