The DataRoom selects Geo Networks

As part of its continued penetration of the media and broadcast sector, Geo Networks has announced a 10 year contract with new media data centre, The DataRoom London (DataRoom). Geo is to provide dark fibre to south London-based DataRoom, linking  it to Geo’s 3,000km network to facilitate connectivity to over 100 data centres and media hubs such as Chiswick Park, MediaCityUK and Dublin’s The Digital Hub.

DataRoom, a new media-specific data centre in the Royal Woolwich Arsenal, is a collaboration between existing storage facility Stockroom London and digital media service provider ChilliBean. Whilst StockRoom London will continue to provide ultra-secure space for the archiving and storage of film, tapes, data drives, documents and related items, DataRoom has been constructed to provide a central access point for post-production and special effects companies to render content, alongside staple data centre services such as disaster recovery, server virtualisation and co-location.
