Telstra Global, a leading global supplier of managed network and hosting services, has been selected by Daisy Group plc to support its ambitious growth plans with a suite at Telstra’s London Hosting Centre (LHC) - Docklands. The Docklands facility will now support the business communications provider’s long-term plans for cloud and colocation services growth in central London.

Daisy now operates five data centres across the UK, all of which are connected to its national fibre network.

In addition to the 70 racks of new colocation in a dedicated suite with industry leading power and cooling at LHC – Docklands, Telstra Global will also provide the renewal of Daisy’s existing data services. This will enable Daisy to handle the rapidly expanding demands of its communications service that ensure a consistent and high quality end-user experience for its clients.

Daisy Group’s CEO, Mr Matthew Riley comments, “Telstra’s London Hosting Centre – Docklands offers unique hosting capabilities in a central London location, and is the optimum site to host our key ICT infrastructure.
