Company begins phased build out of flagship datacenter, the largest of 18 in its global network
VANCOUVER Jan. 31 PEER 1 Hosting , £10 million
The PEER 1 Hosting datacenter will offer scalable managed hosting, dedicated hosting and co-location services within the Portsmouth facility. This will be the first time all three types of hosting will be offered by the company from a UK-based facility. Peer 1 Hosting’s Toronto Datacenter also offers all three hosting services under a single roof.
The facility will have capacity for approximately 1,020 normal cabinet equivalents (NCE) for co-location or 20,000 servers for managed and dedicated hosting, with the flexibility to alter the mix of these core services based on future customer demand.

The new facility will implement some of the most efficient products and technologies on the market designed to reduce its overall carbon footprint and provide lower energy consumption. Some of the efficiencies planned include the use of redundant high-efficiency VFD centrifugal chillers and heat exchangers to take advantage of "free cooling" year round, providing significant energy savings. Based on the location of Portsmouth, the datacenter will generate 85 percent free air cooling from its natural environment. This enables the company to use more environmentally-friendly refrigerants not commonly found in current air-cooled systems.
