BT has recently announced an additional investment in its data centre capacity to meet the increasing demand from large UK-based organisations for cloud-based services. The Operator has signed an agreement to use data centre specialist Ark Data Centre’s two highly secure and sustainable sites in the south of England. The investment is part of BT’s cloud of clouds vision aimed at helping large organisations connect easily and securely to the applications and data they need.

The capability the two new data centres offer adds to the company’s existing BT Compute portfolio of cloud services, which span public, private and hybrid clouds through to traditional telehousing and colocation services.The two new data centres are fully integrated in BT’s cloud of clouds, already supported by more than 20 cloud-enabled facilities across five continents, with a further 30 data centres from third party cloud service providers connected to its network.

Organisations in all industries are embracing the need for greater innovation through digital strategies that rely on cloud services.This is especially true for public sector bodies faced with the complex challenge of transforming services sustainably with increasingly tight budgets.
