100Gbps connection from Virgin Media Business

Data centre operator Redstation will soon be the first UK data centre to begin offering its customers data speeds of up to 100Gbps thanks to a new high capacity network from Virgin Media Business. The network will be rolled out at Redstation’s two data centres in Hampshire over the next six months, extending Redstation’s core network and offering its customers high data speeds.

Redstation is the first UK customer to sign up for the diverse 100Gbps wavelength service. With more bandwidth Redstation will be able to support its data-hungry customers with greater capacity and differentiate itself from the competition.

Martin Groom, managing director, at Redstation commented: “Moving an increasing amount of data around at faster speeds is the number one issue affecting data centre operators like us. Our customers are demanding more and more bandwidth all the time and in order to support that and grow our business we needed a solution that met that need and prepared us for the future. Virgin Media Business’ new network will mean that we can offer customers more than enough bandwidth and even have spare capacity to ensure they we can devote time to creating newer services for our customers.”

Martin Groom continued: “Virgin Media Business’ technology allows us to deliver the performance and reliability our customers require, while providing the flexibility to dial capacity up as we need to. We’re also thinking about expanding our service offering and are currently making plans for more sites. The great thing about the network is that it will give us the room we need to grow, without causing us any headaches over restricted bandwidth.”
Jeff Wollen, executive sales director – partner markets and public sector Virgin Media Business said: “Businesses are getting more and more data hungry with every passing day. As they become more reliant on cloud services, and mobile working technology to run their operation they need faster and more reliable data transfer between sites. That’s where our high capacity service offering comes in – it’s helping Redstation to offer its customers all the capacity they need, and more. We’re proud to be supporting the UK’s first roll-out of a 100Gbps data centre network and are confident that more operators will recognise the need for more bandwidth.”
