Right at the entrance to the Blackwall Trading Estate is the former Thus Group’s data centre. The estate was originally built in 1971 and the two warehouses were converted into a data centre in 2001.
The buildings are in sight of the Telehouse campus – IP House is the silver double shed in the top right of the aerial view, Telehouse North 2 is the building in the bottom left.
The building is basically a fortified shed with high walls, cameras and a large amount of razor wire to protect the building. Cooling units are visible attached to the side of the building and in the aerial view on the river front side of the building.
This data centre was so run down looking that it is extremely hard to tell if it is still in use as it has changed hands several times as its owner was taken over. This site seems to suggest it is still indeed a functioning data centre.
