    LONDON, Aug. 20, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Level 3 Communications, Inc. (NYSE: LVLT) today announced that it has added new advanced data centre facility space in Hayes, West London.

    Level 3 is adding this enterprise grade data center space to serve more enterprise customers in the region, and in response to demand by U.S.-based companies seeking to increase their global operations using Level 3’s international network footprint and service portfolio. The addition also comes as part of Level 3’s strategy to extend its data center expertise globally by investing to upgrade and expand data centers and managed services, enabling the company to meet the growing demand for secure, reliable cloud-based and managed services. 

    The new facility, one of Level 3’s Premier Elite data centres, features high-power density cabinets and suites, 24 x 7 security and maintenance support, and will provide additional capacity to Level 3’s three existing data centres in central London and to its more than 350 data centres worldwide. Due to its close proximity to central London, the new facility will offer disaster recovery, replication and redundancy facilities, and will offer customers in the region a new option for expanding or outsourcing their enterprise data centre requirements. The location was chosen in part, to help enable companies to meet disaster recovery objectives, while also being able to perform synchronous replication.

    The location of the new data centre also plays to Level 3’s strengths in the financial services sector. Hayes is equidistant between the Chi-X trading platform in Slough and central London’s financial services district, as well as being on Level 3’s primary low latency route across the Atlantic. This provides excellent connectivity for financial services companies seeking access into European and North American markets.  

    “The new Level 3 facility is set to service the rapidly growing demand for enterprise ready data centre space in London, a major European market,” said James Heard, Level 3 regional president of EMEA. “Being located on Level 3’s fibre network will provide enterprises and service providers access to data recovery, replication, storage and redundancy, backed by a global fibre network. This is further evidence of Level 3’s dedication to growing our position in key markets around the world and providing industry-leading connectivity solutions for companies in a vast range of sectors.”
