    Boasts of over 65,000 square feet of raised floor and will support more than 40,000 servers.

    Rackspace, a provider of managed hosting services, today announced that it has signed agreements to lease a new data center in Slough, England and to power it with environmentally-friendly energy.

    With more than 65,000 square feet of raised floor, the new facility was added to address the company's continual success in the hosting market and will provide capacity to add more than 40,000 servers to support Rackspace's growing customer base.

    The new data center, leased from investment and development group Slough Estates Group, will help to reduce Rackspace's dependency on fossil fuel. Slough Heat and Power, which will supply the Rackspace facility with the required power, does not burn coal and instead uses clean wood chips and fiber fuel, both renewable, biomass energy sources. Rackspace's new data center is expected to be fully operational in Spring 2008.
