KAO Data, a specialist developer and operator of advanced, carrier neutral data centres for high performance colocation, has announced a new partnership with Vorboss to expand its low-latency, resilient connectivity capabilities at its Harlow campus. Vorboss, a leading London-based connectivity provider is continuing to engineer its wholly owned fibre network, which offers resilient high-capacity connectivity across the UK and into Europe.

Kao Data’s Open Compute Project-Ready (OCP) data centre design provides Vorboss with a strategic Point of Presence (PoP). Their direct fibre connection offers increased resilience for end-users with even the most complex of requirements using direct links from London’s financial hubs to the UK Innovation Corridor and into all major European metropolitan cities. Furthermore, the collaboration offers superior connectivity alongside high density, scalable HPC environments of 25kW and above to cater for AI applications delivering quant and grid computing.

“Financial data science is a complex and high-growth market sector, requiring data centres that can truly support the demands of AI and compute-intensive research and trading platforms,” said Spencer Lamb, VP, Kao Data. “Expanding our carrier neutral partnerships with fibre from Vorboss provides direct access to additional high-quality network capacity and will help meet customer requirements for dedicated low-latency and high-performance connectivity.”

Vorboss provides market leading enterprise connectivity including wholesale leased lines, DIA, MPLS and public cloud connections over a world-class network resiliently engineered for exceptional uptime. Using Vorboss-owned fibre, Kao Data clients can benefit from low latency, high-performing connections with handoffs available in over 25 data centres throughout the UK and Europe.

“Vorboss is known for its innovation and expertise in the financial services sector, and Kao Data understands the competitive advantages that dedicated fibre offers to this crucial segment of UK businesses,” said Vorboss CEO, Timothy Creswick. “It’s particularly fitting to be offering fibre connections to the site where fibre optic technologies were discovered over 50 years ago and we’re excited to see this collaboration maximise return on investment for many organisations.”
