The Bunker in Kent, UK has been one of the success stories in the niche 
market for ultra-secure =E2=80=9Cmilitary grade=E2=80=9D data centers housed in 
nuke-proof subterranean fortresses. Many data bunkers have an abundance 
of security features, but The Bunker also has an abundance of customers.

The Bunker, which has hosted clients in underground facilities since 
1994, is now expanding with a 12,000 square meter (130,000 square foot) 
data center on its existing campus in Sandwich, Kent.

The Bunker Secure Hosting Ltd. received final planning permission this 
week for The Bunker 2, which will offer hosting and disaster recovery 
services from the N+1 facility. As with the company=E2=80=99s two existing data 
centers, The Bunker 2 offers space for companies that need to be in the 
London market but are wary of the risk of disaster or terrorism. The 
design for the new facility will focus on energy efficiency, typically a 
secondary concern for ultra-secure data storage facilities.

The new data center =E2=80=9Cwill provide a highly secure, low risk Internet hub 
outside of London to service clients who wish to house 
internet-connected systems in the UK, without being reliant on high risk 
London zones,=E2=80=9D said Peregrine Newton, CEO of The Bunker.

The Bunker=E2=80=99s two existing data centers are housed in former Ministry of 
Defence nuclear bunkers in Kent and Newbury that were initially built to 
house the UK=E2=80=99s air defense system. Both are outside the M25, the major 
perimeter highway serving London and a key geographic boundary for 
companies seeking data center space that would remain operational 
through a regional disaster affecting central London.
