LONDON, December 8 /PRNewswire/ -- BIS Ltd., a provider of hosting and global connectivity solutions for businesses and carriers, today announced that the facility purchased earlier this year is now fully operational and open for Business. A 26 week build and upgrade programme was completed on time and under budget. This included the upgrade of the BIS core network to 10Gig to facilitate rapid customer connections to other BIS data centres.

This new Data Centre in South East London adds an extra 22,500 square feet of secure and resilient Data Centre space to BIS's portfolio of Data Centres. Space at Anchorage Point will be available on either a co-location or fully managed basis and to date the demand has been extremely strong, says Raj Bosamia, Commercial Director for BIS Ltd.

This is a great asset for BIS and enables us to offer secure, high quality contiguous space to customers at cost-effective rates, says David Pyemont, Chairman of BIS Ltd. From a strategic perspective, BIS has rapidly expanded to over 65,000 square feet of co-location and we are currently evaluating a number of additional sites which will allow BIS to meet our objective to become the UK's largest independent provider of quality Data Centre space, continues David Pyemont.

BIS has already sold 30% of Anchorage Point and we believe that the Data Centre will be fully occupied in the near future, states Samantha Keating, Sales Director for BIS Ltd. As the current market conditions toughen, we believe that BIS' position as a debt free, independently owned service provider will prove very attractive. When combined with highly attractive pricing on flexible solutions and our commitment to UK based support staff, any company that is looking to reduce costs whilst retaining a quality service should be talking to us, continued Ms. Keating.
